Copy & Paste between documents crashes iPad Designer

Recommended Posts

IPad Pro 2018 12.9”

iOS 12.1.1

Affinity Designer version

Repeatable crash.  Through a process of selective elimination, it seems to be related to trying to copy a Symbol from one document to another.  Perhaps that is something which isn’t allowed, but I don’t think it should crash the app.  Easy to replicate.

1) Create a new document

2) Create an object (Text, pen, whatever)

3) With the object selected, go to Symbols, and “Add Symbol from Selection” from the Symbols menu

4) From the *** menu, choose Copy

5) Press the Back Arrow button to go back to the Document Gallery

6) Create a New Document or pick a different existing one

7) Try to Paste from the clipboard and the app immediately crashes to the Home screen.

Hi mkcmobile, Copying and pasting symbols in another document causing crash has been reported previously. :)

We are still waiting for an update that fixes this bug. Unfortunately mods and devs unable to give a timeframe for any fixes.

I have the same issue... my temporary solution is delete the symbol, copy it, return an action to retrieve the symbol in the document, and paste from the clipboard in the other document. I hope it can help you.
