[FIXED] Saving to an external drive gives "Failed to Save Document" error on macOS Ventura

Recommended Posts

  • Staff

Unfortunately, we're aware of an issue affecting users on macOS Ventura when trying to save to an external drive such as a flash drive that has a FAT partition.

You will be able to initially save to the flash drive as expected but any subsequent saves to the same file will give the error:

"Failed to save document. Save failed because access to the file was lost. The document must now be closed."

This issue is logged with our developers for further investigation but saving locally and to a non FAT partitions is unaffected.

 IMPORTANT UPDATE for anyone still using V1 Affinity applications - 

Versions 1.10.6 of the Affinity suite have been released, which we believe fixes this export issue.

This same fix will be included in the next patch/release (2.0.x) for Affinity Photo 2 on macOS, Affinity Designer 2 on macOS, and Affinity Publisher 2 on macOS

Please see the below link for information on how to access these version 1 updates:
