Designer V2 autosave location? (windows)


Recommended Posts

Hey, Designer V2 just crashed on me.. reopened it and all it asked me was to send a bugreport (which I did) but now I lost my work.. Where is the autosave location of V2? They changed that and I can't find it

But if it didn't ask you to restore, that usually means one of these things:

  • It didn't save a file.
  • It saved one, but you were working on a named file (not a new, unsaved one). In that case you don't get the prompt until you try to open that file again.

The automatic prompt to restore is only when you were working on a new, unnamed file, or when you've configured the app to automatically reopen files you were working on when you start it.

I'm extremely happy to say that you were wrong..

unnamed file and it was saved there :)

I have had the same problem with Affinity Photo. Following the Auto Save rout you gave (But for Photo) I found the file but with Zero KB. This has happened a few times of late. I remember changing some of the Performance settings. Could this be the fault.
