Publisher freeze, if working with "TextStilen"

Recommended Posts

Dear Affinity-Team,

since five days I have a problem, that I can't work with most of my files.
When I open some poster or brochure-document, I can't do anything. No element in Publisher is clickable (neither buttons nor frames).

In TaskManager affinity constantly increases slowly the ram-usage. 

The only thing I can do is: waiting, if ram-usage goes to maximum and crashes, or I kill the process.


When I create a new file, I can work a little bit with the file until it will frozen too.

UPDATE: Now I think, I can define the problem more clearly: I get the freeze-problem every time, when I activate the "TextStil"-Panel.

Could you evaluate the problem? I can't do any work with this failure.

- I'm using - Version
- I've reinstalled Affinity
- tested with Win10 and Win8.1 (newest Versions)
- tested with intern grafic-card (intel-uhd) and extern grafic-card (Nvidea Quadro T1000)
- tested with notebook-monitor only, and also with external monitor
- tested with dockingstation and without dockingstation
- all drivers (dockingstation, grafic-card) updated to newest version
- system with 32GB-RAM, i7-9.th Gen, 1TB SSD, 4k-Display

@woge1011 Did you perhaps select "Show examples" in the preferences in the style panel (hamburger menu)? If so, please deselect it.

@Komatös: You are right - After installing publisher "Show examples" in the style panel is initially selected.

With deactiviated examples it seems to work, now. I'll try for some days, and if the problem doesn't occure again, I'll mark this thread as solved.

Seems, that this is really a bug - but most important is, that I are able to work now.

Many, many thanks for the fast help @walt.farrell and @Komatös.
