  1. Hi Chris, Unfortunately I had to reduce the file size (by merging some layers together) to finish working on it without crashes. I can maybe give you an estimate based on other similar illustrations I worked on: 3000x3000px with roughly 20 layers for 200MB on disk It has not happened since though.. I think the file might have been corrupted in some way while I was working on it
  2. Hello, Tonight the app has crashed twice while I was increasing my brush width using the ']' shortcut. The file is quite big so that may be a reason but please see attached both crash reports. crash-brush-1.rtf crash-brush-2.rtf

    Can't open PDF files

    Thanks everyone for the help I wonder why my HP scanner creates those PDF abominations XD

    Can't open PDF files

    Solved! I remembered that I had attached the PDF to this topic so I dowloaded it and tried again. At first try Affinity P simply didn't open it, no dialogue box etc Then I opened it with acrobat, simply saved with another name and now it works exactly as Merde and Phil were saying

    Can't open PDF files

    Hi Chris, to be honest I don't remember the exact message if there was one.. I think it just didn't do anything when I tried to open it. I have since deleted the files, but if you think it would be helpful, I will scan another one and see how it goes
  6. Hi Gabriel, They are either directly on my Desktop or on a folder I always use and always used (even with the prior version of Affinity). I do think this is a bug. I reported it while using the beta as well.

    Can't open PDF files

    Thanks PaulEC I think it will remain a mystery! I can scan it again as a jpg (already done) so it's not a problem Thanks for the compliments as well
  8. Hello, It just happened again with a jpg I never opened before. Crash report attached: Crash-87295.dmp
  9. Hi Gabe, Thank for the reply. I need to say that the problem didn't happen with a specific file but it happens randomly either if I try opening files or if I try to create new ones. I will do as you suggested though and let you know if the app crashes again

    Can't open PDF files

    Hi Bruce, No the only reason was that I saved it as PDF by accident. Still I'd like to know why I can't open it in Affinity Photo..

    Can't open PDF files

    The PDF I tried to open is a scan I did myself of a sketch but you are right, I tried to open another random PDF and it worked... Is there a way to know exactly which PDFs APhoto can open?
  13. I can't open PDF files in Affinity Photo 1.7 It simply won't open them or will crash trying. Maybe it's not supposed to open them even though I can see them as openable within the app?
  14. Hello, The new Affinity Photo tends to crash easily either when I create a new file or when I open a previously created one. This is the report of the latest crash: Crash-87295a.dmp

    Oh Jeez!! :O Thanks for the clarification! I didn't even noticed a different tool was highlighted in the image... I posted about the anti-aliasing for the flood fill tool on a already existing post from 2016... I wonder why this feature is still not implemented..
