Affinity Publisher Freezes When Saving


Recommended Posts

Hello, I've been working on this project on an Intel MacBook Pro for several months with no issues. I recently got an M1 MacBook PRO, downloaded the latest version of Publisher 1, and now I can't seem to save my file now. It freezes when saving. Is there something that can be causing this? The same file was working fine with my previous laptop.

Where are you trying to save the file, to your Documents folder, Desktop folder, or somewhere else?

Is that folder synced to iCloud?

Are you able to create a new document and save it to the same location or is it just specific files?

Also, open macOS System Settings and click Privacy & Security in the left pane. Choose Files and Folders and then expand Affinity Publisher. Is access to the appropriate folder enabled? You would be prompted the first time you try to save to one of these folders but if you declined it while getting going with your new laptop, something that is easy to do, you have to go to settings to enable access.


Good luck
