Affinity Apps (briefly) prevent Mac to shut down

Recommended Posts

Hi Affinity!

Since I am using Affinity Photo and Publisher, running on my iMac Pro (currently running macOS 10.14.5), I always get a very short message when shutting down the Mac. (I am not closing the programs before shutting down). 

After initiating the shutdown process, there are two messages popping up for a fraction of a second. It's too short to read, so I filmed it. The messages say, that, Affinity Publisher and Affinity Photo prevent the Mac to shut down. Actually, they don't. The message really shows up very shortly and then the Mac shuts down. There are usually many other programs running when shutting down the Mac, but these messages only appear for the Affinity Apps. (It has nothing to do with any open documents in the two apps. If there is an unsaved document, I'm getting another message to save them.)

Just wanted to let you know…
