Publisher File shutdown on save failure (linked files)

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I was recently using the Publisher Beta and unfortunately, lost a bit of (thankfully simple!) work due to a disconnection with my work VPN.

We use a VPN to access in-house servers, which has a fairly short timeout period. Whilst working on a Publisher file, the VPN disconnected. When I went to save my work, an error popped up saying that Publisher had lost access to the file (and linked files) and immediately closed. My work was gone and a shock on my face.

Whilst common sense would propose saving frequently, is it silly to suggest a failsafe option of switching to the Save As menu when this happens? My project was using linked files, but surely there's a way around this for those accessing work files remotely?

Thanks and keep up the great work!

Levi

The efficient memory handling of the Affinity apps is achieved (at least in part) by not loading the entire project file into RAM if it is beyond a certain size, so you need to get into the habit of copying from remote to local storage, working on the local copy and then copying the edited version back across.
