Live perspective filter on symbol crashes Affinity Designer

Recommended Posts

Applying a live perspective filter to a symbol in Affinity Photo causes Affinity Designer to crash upon opening the file in question. However, you can still open said file with Affinity Photo.


Steps to create the issue:

  1. Create an Affinity Designer document.
  2. Create a later with some sublayers and make that top layer a symbol. Save the file.
  3. Open the saved file with Affinity Photo and apply a live perspective filter to the symbol. Save the file.
  4. Try to open the file with Affinity Designer and it will immediately crash.


I have attached a file that is in the state after completing step 3 above.
