Dear community,

After working on my portfolio for 2 months–having it opened, saved & closed as many times–I encountered today my first bug regarding AP.

AP crashes every time I try to open a specific file.

I made a copy of the file on my desktop, and the copied file opened with the assets being missing.
So, my guess is that It should be an assets (loading, indexing, etc) issue...

I tried reinstalling AffPub, but it still doesn't open the specific file...
I could try to re-link the "missing" assets of the file but is there a more optimal solution?

I opened the copied file and tried to re-link the assets, following the advice read in various threads here, but it seems that I have to do it one by one... and that is no bueno!

Needless to say, I tried to replace a random asset in my copied file (supposedly AP would automatically re-link all of the assets, as per discussed at another thread), but it didn't work either.


Could you please make the process a bit easier? Re-linking a batch of images, instead of one by one, should this bug occur again?

And–of course–could you check this issue with the file?


I attached a pic of my report, if that is of any help!

Semper Fi, Affinity!

Thank you very much in advance,

Hi @Christos,

Welcome to the forums. 

Can you upload your file and your resources on our dropbox account so we can have a look? https://www.dropbox.com/request/rwDUzxKdtazQZOUM59gy

As for the re-linking of resources, when you open the file and get the "missing resources" dialog, press "yes", and if all your resources are in the same place, you only need to locate a few of them and it should auto-relink everything.
