[Fixed] AD/AP freeze at File/Place...

Recommended Posts

Hello, guys at Serif.

Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer freezes at file/place.

No mater if source file is RGB or CMYK. Both programs simply stop to work after I do File / Place.

What I ask here, and what many people have already asked for, for God's sake, add the File / Link function ...
So, if I update the linked source file, it will automatically update the file that contains the link.

To reproduce the BUG again

1. Start Affinity Photo Beta or Designer Beta
2. Create any document with anything and save it.

3. Close the program and open it again
4. Create a new document
5. Do File / Place...

Please Serif people, I'd really like you to fix the bugs without ruining what's working well.

Using my own files in Photo I did not get a crash

Let me throw this out ...

They have a bunch of bugs related to the screen resolution being larger than 100%% Tou might want to check that for no other reason than to rule it out

Okay... a little more to go on. Yes, AD284 does indeed freeze when placing a .afdesign file... BUT... Place works okay on .jpg and .png file. So, I suppose, Export .jpg/.png and then Place?? APub283 does not freeze on Place .afdesign file.

Mark Ingram, if I do Replace Document for a selected object named "(Embedded document)", AD & AP freezes too!
