File Crashing - text box related?

Recommended Posts

I'm working on a book design layout whose file I cannot upload for others to check because...obvious reasons. I'm using APub 1.73. The Affinity/Serif store version.

Last night, the file crashed on me for the first time while I was moving around master pages and text. Today, I have crashed constantly, even immediately after opening the doc and touching the text tool icon.

Anyone else having as much fun as I am with crashes related to master files / text fields? I'm going to try the latest BETA today, but you know what they say "don't use BETA versions for production work..." so yeah, catch 22-ish situation cause maybe there's a fix in the BETA. I'll see. Thankfully I learned to backup religiously in the 90's. :)

UPDATE: I just opened the file in BETA released today. Crashed immediately as well. I'm running out of disk space on this drive, so I'm going to clear that up a bit and see if it makes the slightest difference. Program feels sluggish, too.

Today I've had two text box related crashes in a row after a full day without them.

It happened as I was triple and quadruple clicking inside a text box to select a full line or paragraph of text. The textbox in question was copied over from the old crashing document, whereas I've had no trouble so far with text boxes created independently in the new document.

I've got a crash report, if that's of any use.
