Publisher keeps crashing - multiple text fields, book layout


Recommended Posts

AffPublisher keeps crashing. I made a master page with 13 text fields (26 on spread) and inserted 26 pages of unformatted text.

The software crashes as hell - without a reason, it's unstable, sometimes works sometimes doesn't.

The more pages/paragraph styles, the more unstable the software is.

I have to built a book of about 150 pages and I am not sure if I should continue with AffPub or switch back to InDesign.

please help

also, when inserting e.g. 16 pages of pure text (A5 format - 100% sure, checked in notepad), after clicking shift+flow button (the traingle), the indd creates like 206 pages (it takes ages) and then, after 2 minutes reduces it to 16 :) maddness

1. yes, I'm using the latest version

2. Can you reproduce it - yes. I was trying to make an interlinear translation booklet: just make e.g. 13 text fields (one page wide), flow the text from 1st to 13th; then make 13 text fields and flow the text, and then another lines. In total, 39 text fields on left page and 39 on right page.

(I will send you a sample tomorrow)

3. Does it happen for a new documen - sometimes yes, sometimes no. For example, when you try to flow text without styles, sometimes is OK. And if you copy from another file, then it crashes. You never know...

- I'm using windows 10

- What happened for you (and what you expected to happen) - software kept crashing while I was expecting to use it as Ind...

- Provide a recipe for creating the problem (step-by-step what you did).

As above, I created a master page with 39 text fields line-by-line for interlinear translation (13 for one language, 13 for another one, 13 for pronunciation)

When I tried to fill the pages with text, most of the times, AffPub crashed.

If Publisher crashes than there should be a crashreport and a log.text.

Copy %appdata%\affinity\Publisher\1.0\CrashReports\reports\, then hold WINDOWS key and press R. Paste the path in to the input field. Now you should see some .dmp files. Attach the dmp file with the newest time and date stamp in a new posting. In the root of 1.0 you'll find the log.txt.
