My Mac OS system sometimes crashes completely while saving a file in Affinity Photo. It happened on my old 2011 Macbook Pro with an older version of Mac OS as well as on the (almost) latest late 2017 MacBook Pro with HighSierry Mac OS 10.13.6.
It happened about 5 times already, so it seems to be a real issue.

It doesn't matter what file I'm saving to: .psd, .tiff, .afphoto 
I can't reproduce the problem. It just suddenly happens.

every crash was a different file. 
The files are linked in a Lightroom catalogue. Maybe the issue is caused because both apps try to access the same file simultaniously.

Perhaps Lighjtroom lock the file like some app do? Did you tried without launching Lightroom or selecting the file in Lightroom? (But it should tell you it can't save the file, not crash…)

the files are not locked. I can write to them. Only sometimes, very rarely the whole system crashes. I can open the same file later and it works without a problem.

Hi Mellon,

Are you saving to any kind of Nasbox, Network Drive or Cloud drive at all? Do you have any crash reports you could attach at all? If we've got one of them we can ask development to have a quick look into it and see what might be going on!

It happened again...
The steps:
Lightroom
Edit Photo in external editor: Affintiy Photo, filetype PSD
CMD-S while working on the image without a problem
"Save over imported PDS files" is enabled
On closing the app window prompt to save the project as .afphoto file
I hit don't save

–> the whole system crashed, kernel panic screen

I believe this happened with tiff files as well.

I attached the apple crash report but I don't think it is helpful.
