1.7.2 crash when printing afpub File

Recommended Posts

Hello,

using Publisher 1.7.2 on a macos 10.14.6

When i want to print an .afpub File, Publisher crashes. That was not the case in Version 1.7.1

My workaround is to export in PDF and then print this file.

Hi,

There is an issue in 1.7.2 where the program may crash when printing if the file contains an embedded document.

For now if you want to print your file you can either:

  • If you have the Affinity Store version of the product, downgrade to 1.7.1 here
  • Export to PDF and print from there (looks like you've sussed this one!)
  • Rasterise the embedded documents before printing

Apologies for the inconvenience.

If you could upload your file here it would be appreciated

@derekkinsman Can you upload your file to the above dropbox link? The files I've seen so far crash when going into the File > Print dialog, I want to check you aren't experiencing a different issue

MacOS Mojave 10.14.6. Trying to print a file  with 2 embedded graphics. Changing any option for print causes the APub 1.7.2 to hang and needs to be force quit.

Interestingly, for three different documents I get two different errors.

1. Can no longer reproduce error I described above.
2. Works. File printed.
3. Crashes the instant I hit Print, as described in original post.

Duplicating the layer with the embedded (linked) document, rasterizing the copy, and turning off the original, embedded layer allowed me to both print and export to PDF.  The embeded document is still there if I need to change it and can duplicate & rasterize again if needed without too much fuss

I am having a similar issue.

I have an 8 page document.  I only want to print page 8 to proof it.  I do command P, and no matter what option i take to ask it to print page 8, KABOOM--it crashes.  I have tried selecting the page and using "Selection," and "Current Page," and entering "8" on pages when Enitre Document is selected.  I am uploading to the Dropbox three crash files for each example.

Yes, page 8 has an embedded picture.

Hurry on this one.  It's important.

Just to re-iterate, we are aware of this bug but I can't say when it will be fixed (we are aware of it effecting multiple users).

If one of the above workarounds works for you I would suggest using it.
