failed to save document error?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have this issue off and on with v1 and v2. I'm told that it's due to using iCloud - are you using iCloud or another cloud storage option?

The problem is Affinity loses connection to the file and can't save over it. Fortunately, this isn't a terrible problem because as you've discovered you can just use Save As and create a new file. I hope it gets fixed soon because it's unsettling and inconvenient, but it's easy to work around.

Cheers

Its not the worst thing ever, considering I'll just save as

Your file looks quite simple as regards the number of layers etc but if it was a more complex file, it may not have completely loaded into memory so a File > Save as... may not work in those circumstances.

Affinity highly recommends only working on local drives and using external drive for backups only

What sort of external drive were you working from/saving to?

To save time I am currently using an automated AI to reply to some posts on this forum. If any of "my" posts are wrong or appear to be total b*ll*cks they are the ones generated by the AI. If correct they were probably mine. I apologise for any mistakes made by my AI - I'm sure it will improve with time.

I've had this issue recently (and frequently) with Zoho WorkDrive (a cloud storage drive) using both Publisher and Designer. For me, it hasn't been a minor problem. I was unable to recover files, the software froze, and the only way to restart the software was rebooting MacOS. I guess I'll have to keep active files on my local drive -- something of an inconvenience.

You should probably discuss in the topic you started earlier:

If you scatter the conversation you're less likely to get it solved.

Additionally, there are questions for you to answer, that are needed to help you, in that other topic.

Questions like what

Why not go there and look? That's why I provided the pointer.

I understand you're upset, but no one can help you without additional information.
