Access Denied for Links in Resource Manager Publisher Mac


Recommended Posts

I have one rogue Affinity Publisher document that for some reason has an issue with Links inside the Resource Manager being listed as 'Access denied'. All other Publisher documents are fine. Using Mac OS Monterey + latest Publisher build.

I thought it was something to do with Full Disc Access, but ticking this on makes no difference.

Any ideas please?!

If you click on one of them to select it, do you get to see more info about the file, including the full path name?

And if that works, is the path a correct one, to a disk that currently exists on your system?

I can yes, the file is fine and although it's a file that's backed up to iCloud it's stored locally and fully downloaded. It's how all my other documents are held and I don't have any other issues with other Publisher docs. 

It won't let me re-link any of them, BUT I can create a new picture box and import the image that way, so Publisher has no issues accessing the files.

I'm confused!

Hi @ConnectCreative,

Are you able to Embed any of the images via the Resource Manager?  Also what happens when you try to relink them, if you get an error what does it say?

I've tried replicating this using files on my iCloud drive but haven't been able to, i'll keep trying :) 

Where is the Resource Manager in Publisher?

A general tip: if you can't find something through the menus, or aren't familiar with them, try the Help menu and type in what you are looking for. e.g. resource...

To avoid possible confusion, that's a Mac-specific tip.

I know only Macs open the menu & place that large blue floating pointer over the menu item, but In Windows does typing a term into the Help menu search field even list menu items that match it, or does it only list help topics that do?

Bummer! It is a really useful feature provided by the macOS itself, so no special coding is required for it to work with any app that uses the standard Mac menu UI.
