Publisher closes on document opening


Recommended Posts

EDIT: Just found an other thread with similar issue; the advise to break links seems to work.

-------

Hi,

I created a new project using Publisher 1.8, so the document is not some conversion from beta or some older version. It contains some linked Designer objects and uses document color pallettes.

I saved the .afpub file successfuly, but I am unable to open it again -- the publisher closes right after the file is opened. It's not a crash, but rather a graceful shutdown of the app. I just cleaned cache and all preferences, but the issue persists.

Affinity team - please provide a way to share the faulty files privately for further inspection.

PPPS: Do you love public transit and transit maps too? Then have a look at my home-made collection of transit maps under www.instagram.com/transitdiagrams or www.twitter.com/transitdiagrams

Glad that's worked, you can re-link them and it should be fine, but be careful adjusting them externally without updating the resource in Publisher until we get a beta out with a fix in.

How do you break links?

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums, Rene.

The simplest way may be to rename the folder that contains the linked files. However, if you have your publisher document in folder X, and the linked files are in a subfolder of X, say X/Y, simply renaming Y might not work. If you have that situation you might need, in addition, to copy or move your publisher document to a new folder.

Re-save linked files created in Designer to its most recent version. In my case linked file created in Designer v.1.8.5 caused crash while opening Publisher (v. 1.9.1.) file.
Updated Designer files to the same version as Pulslisher (v. 1.9.1) and working again.
