Affinity Publisher doesn't start

Recommended Posts


Affinity Publisher it's hanging during the start procedure if I'm not in my network. A few seconds after the start a message occur, no connection to the Sinology NAS. If I'm working at home and the connection to the NAS i'ts OK, Affinity Publisher works like usual. But if I'm working outside with my MacBook i can't using the program. 

Any idea?

Thanks Heinz

Hi @Hene64 and welcome to the forums. If it's the problem I think it is, you should be able to resolve it by deleting the mru.dat file which is located in:

/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Affinity Publisher 2/mru.dat

That file contains the list of recent documents for the menu so deleting it won't cause any issues.


Good luck
