Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, @HanyDesignZ:)

Which iPad Pro model do you have? What were you doing just before the app crashed?

It might help the developers if you could share the crash log. For a crash which occurred today, go to ‘Settings > Privacy > Analytics > Analytics Data’ and look for a filename of the form 'Designer iPad-2018-07-24-hhmmss.ips’, where ‘hhmmss’ is a timestamp.

Hi. I am having the same issue while working on a course to learn the program. I have an older iPad Pro. The program quits while doing digital inking. Lines do not display on artwork but it shows an empty curve in layers. I can sometimes get it to work by adjusting brush edits but after a few strokes it stops again. If I close it and reopen, the last several lines are not saved. I’m wondering if there is maybe a file size limit on the iPad? Any info would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Michelle, there are a few known bugs with the drawing features. I suggest you post your issue in the IPad Bugs thread and attach a screen recording showing the issue. The Moderators may then be able to identify the issue and or advice devs of a bug.
