I just recovered a file in which I was working on a symbol when I had to terminate the software due to it freezing. So when I continued working on the symbol, the symbol sync button was enabled. At the state of the document recovery, it should have been disabled, I did enable the syncing when I was done with the symbol, but that didn't get auto-recovered, so the state should have been off. It is way too easy to accidentally mess up a file this way. There was no way to recover my work properly, because I could not undo to the point where the symbols weren't al messed up. This is in 2.0.3, Windows 22H2.
I stumbled upon this by mistake. You can make a file, save it in a location, and with affinity open still work on it. Now via windows explorer rename the file and/or move it from its location. If AD closes unexpectedly and you didn't resave the file after it being renamed/moved, when you open AD again and go to open recents you'll get the "missing file" error before being able to recover the saved data. However, if you move the file back/rename it back to the way it was (could maybe work even with an empty .afdesign file) and try opening that in AD, it'll show the correct recovery file options and recovered files. Now, this could be solved one of two ways. Either prompt to open the recovery file of the files that are found missing in Open Recents, OR, have an option to see the files for which recovery states are currently present in Affinity.
