Too long to save. Lost work.

Recommended Posts

I was making a document with 11 artboards of images. I added 5 more with changes and then when I got out of the document it was taking multiple minutes to save. So, I quit the app and relaunched and all my 5 artboards are gone. What is taking so long to save? Is it trying to upload it to iCloud? If so, it should save it locally first so I don’t lose it and upload to iCloud in the background. I shouldn’t have to wait that long just to not lose my work.

Hi @drumnkyle,

How big is your document? If you force close the app while it's saving, loss of data is expected. Without knowing more details about your document ( size, size of your images, etc) it's hard to tell what's going on. 

Thanks,

Gabe.

I was following the instructions at this site: https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-a-Coloring-Book/

I was merging down layers as I did each step and that seemed to take a really long time once I had a few artboards. Then, saving after that took an extremely long time. I did 16 images and the file is over 400 MB and fails to upload. Seems like the file is way too large for that.

Have you set Saving to 'Local ipad' in Settings? If not, Uploading a 400mb file will take some time depending on your internet connection speeds.
