Designer V 1.6. Windows Released August 2018 STILL not closing down

Recommended Posts

I found a work-around to this!!!!!!

 

 

**********************************************************************

***********************************************************************

 

Go to the TEMP files for Affininty Designer:

Users >   XXX YOURNAME OR COMPUTERS NAME XXX  >  AppData  >   Roaming   >  Affinity  > Designer   >  1.0  >   temp

 

$$$$$    SAVE this as a SHORTCUT on your Desktop so you can  get to easily if you need to!  $$$$$

 

Here you will find  from 1 to many files.They have NO EXTENSION.  DELETE them all. You may find one or two that will NOT delete. Select one of those file.Right click and select RENAME from the popup menu. KEEP the original name, but ADD this to the END of it.

 

     DOT  afdesign

 

so say you have a temp file called  5bb826a1     rename it to        5bb826a1.afdesign

 

 

Now try to close the program.

 

If this works then leave  the temp file be.   It MAY NOT work in all cases.   If so, then use Task Manager in Windows to close the program, or the equivalent on a Mac system.

 

Keep an eye on this post for future updates.

 

Let me know if it works for you.

Hi Angela,

I think this is still an ongoing problem Serif has to fix in one of the next  versions.

This here is still the (only?) work around:

Close Designer then see if you have any files in this folder

C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Affinity\Designer\1.0\temp\

If so delete them

Happy greetings from Germany

Klaus :D

 

Edit:  Oooops... didn`t see your last post...
