Affinity Publisher close down when deleting layer

Recommended Posts

Want to delete one layer (grey square). But as soon as I try to software closes down.

Tried this several times. Already de-installed programme and started new installation. But failure still exists. Can not work on file anymore.

Any idea or help.

You can select the Rectangle, convert it to curves and delete it successfully.

But something else is screwed up in the document as scrubbing the history slider all the way back causes the file to crash and this also happens in the 1.8 beta

You could open the document go to the master page, select all & copy, create a new A4 document and paste into that one, then delete the rectangle. (which works)

But I would be more inclined to redo the document from scratch since it's only one page and you cant be sure you are not copying any other hidden problem into the new document

By the way are you sure you wanted that page laid out on the master page, it looks like it should be mostly composed on a normal page

I've logged the scrolling crash, but it may just be a side effect of it being saved with a bug in in 1.7.3 - Either way i think it's worth looking into further and have logged it!
