Hi Mcerni2212,

Welcome to the forums :)

Please could you provide the file so I can see if one of our developers can repair it for you?

Thanks

@bscape

Your file opens fine here with the expected message that the linked files are missing

If you unlink your files by renaming the \LA_Glen Iris Sexby Rd Project\ folder slightly you should be able to open the document.

You will receive a message about missing files...

If you select Yes in that message box and navigate to the new folder where the indicated missing file is now located, then once that file is relinked all the other files should relink automatically (In theory)

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

Thanks Carl.  It ended up crashing the program 3 times, then I opened another file, program launched and was then able to reopen the above file.  Odd, I tried renaming it but it still wouldn't open without the program automatically closing.  Gremlins in my system, all good now!

Hello @LittleLizard, and elcome to the forums.

You need to provide more information. Did you get an error mssage saying your file was corrupt? If so can you say what it said (or provide a screnshot)?

What is your Operating System? What version of designer are you using?

The document appears to be corrupted.

The document must now be closed.

I'm having the same issue. I just bought Publisher so I could do simple One-Page diary entries to export to JPEG and the computer is just not handling it very well. The printer shows it as a corrupt file.

With all this corrupted files' bugging happening, I wonder if Affinity apps should pop-up with a warning, if someone tries to save on an external drive?

This could actually become some serious issue, if Affinity sells his software "for professionals" and after some professional lost a customer because he couldn't finish by the deadline due to a bug, which Serif is aware of for quite some time now. This might open an opportunity for suing Serif for compensation. Their terms of use might render invalid in regards of bugs they've been told about ages ago (I found some reports in the fora dated back to 2014 in which the staff confirmed trouble with their apps saving files to external sources). It depends on the judges.

I wouldn't want to take that risk if it'd be my business.
