Master page popup menu hangs if "Apply master..." is selected

Recommended Posts

Affinity Publisher 1.7.0.206
Windows 10 Pro
216 pages, 2,2GB and 273 images, 41 master pages (facing)

After creating the 42nd master page I wanted to assign a master page to this master page (this worked without problems for the previous master pages) - but know if I left click on the master page, the menu is shown and if I select "Apply master...", the menu stays open and no further interaction with Affinity Publisher is possible.

It's no problem to assign a master page to an normal page.

I would be happy to provide the document if it helps to solve the issue.

Have a nice evening, Christian

@Typo998  I want to assign a master to a master page - your screenshot shows applyng a master page to a "normal" page. Appling a master page to a master page worked for the document many times - the problem does not occure with a new document but only with my rather big one.

Hi Christian,

Same for the Apply Master to Master, you need to uncheck the "Replace Existing" check mark.

It's work as expected (applying Test 1, 2 and 3 into Test4.)

Hope that will help you, if not maybe you can attach a file.

Thanks!

Hi Affinity Support,

I can still produce the problem with Affinity Publisher 17.7.0.305.

But the problem is a little bit different now - sometimes the dialog opens, but it's still simple (and fast) to reproduce by opening the dialog, pressing cancel, opening again, ... until Affinity Publicher hangs. Please let me know if you need my document - I would be happy to provide it.

Best Regards, Christian
