Exporting in Affinity Designer on Mac


I have encountered this error a few times but not necessarily every time I export.


Usually when I need to export as a similar name to one that already exists. 


I select to export the file, change the file type and size then click export.


Then I find the folder to export to and select a filename that I want to call the file but then add something to the end such as -white or -logo or -newversion etc.


This then looks like it is going to show a different folder but clears the export window (see attached image) entirely and does not allow anything else to be done, all keyboard use produces a beep and mouse does not work on any buttons. I have checked all background tasks and there is nothing showing, no windows or option or error boxes.


I cannot select any other part of the screen and cannot return to the work in progress and so have to force quit and recover files (if lucky).


Help! This is most frustrating.
