Text Styles restore crash and document destruction

Recommended Posts


Revision Beta

After inadvertently detaching certain text styles from a document, I attempted to restore text styles.

In the process, Publisher locked and the Active Document couldn't be accessed nor could any activity function be accessed. When Publisher was restarted after system reboot the previously Active Document was loaded automatically and Publisher locked up once more. The Publisher crash appears to have corrupted the file for which Affinity Publisher

Corrupted file attached.

Publisher failed after uninstalling and reinstalling. Purged registry an reinstalled; failed again. Purged the registry and cleared the USER files and reinstalled. Affinity Publisher came back up. The document file came back without any corruption.
