Affinity Designer V2 Crashes upon New file or open file

Recommended Posts

Just purchased affinity Designer 2.0 and gutted ūüėě

Loads up fine to start, opens first file and I can print like nothing wrong, but open second file and it takes ages and freezes Designer completely.

I have to end task to close program and re-load to use it again once before I repeat.

No crash report - empty?

My system - Dell
Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-10700 CPU @ 2.90GHz   2.90 GHz
Installed RAM    32.0 GB (31.7 GB usable)
System type    64-bit operating system, x64-based processor

Windows 11 fully updated


Any ideas on how to solve this?

Strange but if I open a file folder and select file open with AD2 it seems to be working so far, but if you open file within affinity via File, Open, select file, this is when it freezes, it would seem on the surface to be an open file issue? 

Anyone else having the same sort of issue?

are you opening files from a location which has cloud services enabled ?

on the first report you mention printing - do the errors occur if you dont print?

Finally try disabling Hardware acceleration in preferences / Performance
