  1. On Saturday My cat stepped on my backup power supply and turned it off along with my computer and peripherals. At the time I had a document open in Affinity Publisher; I had just saved some changes to the file when this incident occurred. When I re-launched Affinity I got an error message stating that my settings might be incorrect. I'm paraphrasing; I wish I had taken a screen shot but anyway after clearing the error message Publisher opened successfully. I navigated to File>Open recent and discovered that the list was cleared. No problem, I thought. I double-clicked the file expecting it to open just fine, but got this message: "The file type is not supported." I made a copy of the file and changed the file extension to .idml, and when I attempted to open THAT one, the message said the file is corrupted. I didn't see a temporary file stored in the same location with the original (as is the case for many other applications), so I started digging into the User and Program Data folders. There are definitely some files in both those folders with that date's timestamp, but I'm not a programmer so I stopped right there and decided to contact you folks. The file is only one page but it's a file I use every single day. If I could at least get the raw text I think I can recreate it, but I sure would like to NOT have to do that. I opened a few other .afpub files at random and they all opened fine; I'm sure this is isolated to the document which was open at the time I lost power. What seems weird to me is that the file had recently been saved without incident; I didn't lose any work in the file. And is there a setting somewhere to turn on auto-backups? I looked around but didn't find anything. Can you help? Thank you. Gretchen Zeigler Melbourne, Florida USA Grocery List CURRENT.afpub
  2. I repeatedly experienced files that properly worked during editing to show, when reopening them after a few days, a message that the file couldn't be opened, as it was corrupt. I create and initially save my files on the desktop and then move them to a Synology NAS. Weardly, some files will reopen properly and some not. Can you please help?
  3. Hello all, this is my first post to the forum. I've been a happy Affinity user so far (well, I still am... I own Designer and Photo, both for Windows) and I work on a Windows 8.1 Bootcamp partition on a 2011 MacBook pro (yep, THAT old). In the last weeks though, a problem occurred twice: Affinity Designer ( apparently saved correctly my file, but the next day while trying to open it again I got an error and the file does not open again. After the first time (an unpleasant surprise), I searched the forum and a few posts pointed to a potential drive corruption but I checked my SSD and it's ok. I should add here that the drive I'm saving to is in the Mac partition and managed in Windows through MacDrive (I am using this setup since 2011 and I never had any issues with any program, Affinity Designer and Photo included). Fortunately, for the first case I had a recent backup and I was able to recover most of the work done. But the second time happened after a particularly productive day finishing late at night, so I stupidly didn't do a backup. In both cases there were no warning signs: Designer seems to save correctly, there was no weird behaviour from the computer or the operating system themselves, everything looked like it all went well. Except, the next day the files were suddenly not opening anymore. Also, there are no related files in the AppData\Roaming\Affinity\Designer\ folders and subfolders (there was a crash report from 2019, but nothing more recent). The errors were different in the two cases: "The file type is not supported" and "The file appears to be corrupted". I am attaching here the file that generated the "corrupted" error (for some reason the upload of the other file fails even though it's just a little above 1 Mb) in the hope something can be done or that at least some light can be shed on the cause and maybe have potential fixes in future versions. Than you in advance for the support! Alessio froGH_icons_20200427_problem-corrupted.afdesign
  4. Not sure what to do. I don't want to upload the file for everyone so if a mod could please help I'll upload the corrupted file to the Affinity Support Team over Dropbox. I was trying to move a constraints group outside its group. Immediately it crashed. Upon re-opening, it gave me a recovery file and I was able to open that. I resized the constraints group down again, saved the project so I wouldn't lose any more progress, then dragged the constraints group again outside the group it's in. Immediate crash. Now I'm unable to open the project at all, Affinity Designer immediately crashes when trying to open the file. Is there any way I can recover the file? I had important saved work on there. Edit: I'm using Affinity Designer on a Windows 10 Desktop PC, hope that helps. Edit 2: I'm pretty sure I posted this in the wrong forum, please move this to Affinity Designer Bugs, thank you!
  5. Hello, I'm not sure if I'm in the right section, so if not, please direct me to the correct section. Two very important files that will not open. When I open in Affinity Photo, the message I get is "This File type not supported." I created this file in the 1.7 program. I'm currently working with the newest version, which is 1.8.3 Any help would be appreciated. product-template-lg.afphoto product-template.afphoto
  6. Hi, 1 - I have been working on this Publisher file for two days and now I can't open it. It seems it is corrupted. I have also tried to open the document with the beta version, without any luck. Could you please have a look to the file and try to send back a recovery version? Thank you! 2 - I suggest it would be a great thing to get an auto-save folder with increments by default to avoid any problems like this (I have lost two days of work which I believe is a serious matter). Kind regards, Philippe. corrupted file.afpub

  8. I recently logged on to my computer (Win 10 PC) to find that the shortcut for my Affinity Designer program was not appearing properly. When attempting to run the program, it remarked that files for the software could not be found. Fearing the files may have somehow been corrupted, I re-downloaded the software and launched the program as an admin. Upon opening, a message appeared informing me that the Product Key was Invalid, after which the program closed out. Following this, I went all the way back to the original emails I was sent from Affinity upon my purchase, and from there I downloaded the software again using the link they had provided for me. Installation of the software gave me the option of removing the previously existing files or repairing them, so I clicked on repair. After this was completed, I launched the program again, only to find the same message informing me that my Product Key was Invalid. Can someone please provide assistance on how to fix this issue, as I am in the middle of several projects that I would like to have completed in a timely manner.
