Designer crashes on Export > Share > Save Image

Recommended Posts

Running iOS 12 on a 12.5 iPad Pro and Designer version


Whenever I run the Export > Share > Save Image option, Designer crashes. 


I've tried resetting my iPad and reinstalling Designer, but the issue persists. I've tried different Designer files, and they all seem to be doing it. 


Any ideas?

Hi chaunce322,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
Affinity Designer and Photo need to have read and write permission to import/export/save from/to Apple Photos. To give Affinity Photo or Designer permission/access to Apple Photos, run the application, click the plus icon in the Welcome Screen and select Import from Photos. Affinity should ask for permission to access your photos. Click OK to give it permission to access your Photos library. You should then be able to import/export/save from/to Apple Photos.

I had this same issue.  Glad I found this post. Can you also trigger the request to access photos from the share button.  If this is the first thing someone does (before importing), then it is confusing that it just crashes.

Thanks, Jeff
