Affinity Designer crashes with symbols

Recommended Posts

In the file attached, there are few symbols that seem to make aff crashing all the time.

For this project, I had to detach all the symbol in order to be able to finish it.

The artboard C10 and C13 have no smartphone frames and for some reason it seems impossible to ass it to them. And eventually make it crash.

Now that I have more time, I'd like to be able to fix this file for further use.

Hi hujikoda

This is a known issue were it is creating multiples of the asset or symbol each time it s moved. eventually you will have a load of extra symbols and in a file this large it is mostly getting to a point where it is running out of memory. Symbols are getting a major overhaul but unfortunately for now it is a case of individually deleting these duplicates.

I have passed this on to the development team though

Hi Affinity Team,

I also can’t wait for Symbols to be fixed (Affinity Designer macOS). It’s almost impossible to work with these right now.
