AD iPad crashes when i press “Expand Stroke”

Recommended Posts


I really enjoy designing in vector in AD on my iPad.

Unfortunately for a client i need to provide an AI Adobe Illustrator file. I tried exporting in EPS, SVG and PDF but with all 3 options i have unexpected results. The main issue is line width. So i ungrouped everything, and than selected everything, and than pressed - expand stroke - . At this action Affinity Designer instantly crashes.

I also tried this in Affinity on my Macbook, same result.

What is the best way to solve this or export to AI?


thank you so much in advance.

Thanks for the file - Looking at the file you've got various objects using multiple strokes. Unfortunately there is currently a known issue that causes the app to crash when doing an Expand Stroke operation with more than 1 of these kinds of objects selected.

I will get your file passed on to development and get it bumped with them. In the mean time you will probably be best Expanding objects bit by bit and saving often!

The issue "Crash when expanding more than one 'multiple stroke' object" (REF: AFD-3892) has been fixed by the developers in internal build "".
This fix should soon be available as a customer beta and is planned for inclusion in the next customer release.
