Affinity Publisher Crashing opening .aps files and New Documents

Recommended Posts

Hi there

Just installed Publisher on my Windows 10 PC.

It crashes instantly when opening .aps files (created on a MAC) and creating any New Document rendering the software totally useless.

I've restarted several times and refreshed the cache.

See attached for crash reports.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the Affinity forums.

APub version is the latest Release version of the app.  You have posted to the forum for reporting Bugs in the Beta releases under Windows.  Perhaps a moderator will move your post to the correct area of the forum.

In the meantime, it might be worth you downloading and installing the latest Beta from the first post in this thread.  The Beta and the Release versions can happily be installed side by side as they share no program files and data.

I've moved this to the bugs forum, as said above can you give the beta a try and let me know if the crash is still happening.

If it is, can you try updating your graphics drivers and letting me know if that resolves the issue.
