Urgent request: recover last project

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have an urgent request:

Affinity Photo, as good as it is, should handle a software crash and being able to recover even unsaved projects.

I already lost hours of work because of this missing feature.

 

I use Lightroom as main raw developing software (AP isn't that good yet tbh) and link it to Affinity Photo, so the edited product when I close Photo will be in Lightroom for the final touches.

Except when Affinity Photo decides to crash for no good reason (like while making a selection)... then everything done in Photo is lost instantly.

 

I expect that when I restart Affinity Photo it tells me "sorry I crashed but I am able to recover the last projects you were working on if you wish so and tell my developers what happened so that they can fix me".

 

Thank you very much!

 

Best regards,

r.v.

Hi r.v.

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Affinity Photo does have an "auto save" feature. You can set the time interval for it in Affinity Preferences, Performance section, File Recovery Interval (default is 300 sec). When the app crashes it should show you a message asking if you want to open/recover the file. You can then save the file and continue working from there. Haven't you seen it when you restarted the application?

Hello MEB,

 

no unfortunately it didn't asked me anything. But I figured that opening the temporary file from lightroom asked me if I want to recover it.
