Publisher file suddenly corrupt

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I've been working on this Affinity Publisher document for about a week now, and everything has been working out great. When I tried to open the same file again this morning, it would always show that the file is damaged or corrupt. I have a backup, but only in form of a PDF where the text does not line up properly after import. I would hate to redo the whole file manually.

Is there anything anyone can do to repair the file? The document contains a lot of embedded images. Is one of them the problem? Is 112.5 MB too large for Publisher?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Great, it works! Many thanks, man!

What did you do? And how did you do it? Was the background image on page 21 corrupt?

Yes, I know I should backup more often. If only there was more space left on my backup drives. I need to buy more storage.

Best regards from Bochum to Neersen!

I created a new document and added pages from file (Dokument > Seiten aus Datei hinzufügen). Yes, page 21 was blank for me. Perhaps this was the corrupt spot.

Greetings back from Neersen to Bochum. ;)
