[By Design] Long pathnames cause error

Recommended Posts

I have my AFDESIGN docs under a few levels of folders and subfolders in Dropbox. When trying to open docs a few levels deep, AF Designer on the iPad gives an error message saying "Can't save file." or something similar.


If I move those same documents upwards in the folder structure, they do indeed open successfully in Affinity Designer for iPad.

Hi @chuckl,

Welcome to the forums. 

That's a limitation of the iOS. Even the Files App only goes 14 folders deep. We, however, can go up to 16 subfolders. Not much we can do as it's an iOS limit.
