affinity designer freezing on save


Recommended Posts

when saving a document, even when there are basically no changes to save (opening a group and selecting one object), it freezes and does not unfreeze in a reasonable amount of time (i have not left it overnight to see). however it does successfully save the document. as far as i know, this started after updating to the recent security patch.

Hi RocketpoweredTennisBall,

Welcome to the forums :)

Are you saving directly to your hard drive or are you saving to a USB stick or Cloud drive etc? If you create a brand new file and try saving it does this issue occur? 
Please could you also tell me if you have tried reinstalling the app?

Please tag me using @ in your reply so I can be sure to respond ASAP.

i was saving to the internal drive in a non-synced location. i had first had this with a new file but i had copied in some objects from another file before saving. i did try it on a document that i had previously had no issue with, and it happened to that as well. i will try reinstalling the app today.

I am having the same issue, its been happening for weeks now, I have tried save as in different locations, rather than my iCloud and have reinstalled twice and it works ojk for a bit but its happening again. I have some artwork to get sorted today for a client and I don't know what else to try!

Restart didn't help. Moving the file to another disk didn't help. Reliably freezes on save.

It's an .afdesign file on macOS. Opened it in Photo 2, it opened fine and saved fine after changes. 

Opened the saved file in Designer, opens fine, still doesn't save.
