Title: Closing AD
Post by: MaryLou on October 02, 2018, 10:27:50 am
Is anyone else having a problem closing AD?  I get a message every single time I try to close and there is nothing else open but that program.  The only way I can shut it down is by going to the Task Master.  Here's the message I get:

Wow..that's a long thread!!  I read all of the posts and ended up not doing the process manager.  Went straight to the app folder and there was only one file in the Temp folder.  I deleted that and all worked just fine!!  Apparently, there's a bug that's not clearing out the temp files.  I better go and post on the Affinity forum that the problem has been solved.   

Sure glad it was an easy fix!!   THANKS!!!!!!

The ones they mentioned were not in my temp files and since it was a temp folder, I knew it wouldn't hurt to just delete whatever was there.   That's an obvious bug because the program should clear all temp files when you close it.  Anyway, it worked!!  Maybe will be fixed in next version.

The trouble is you are not sure what makes it do it.

True, we don't know so that's something the developers will have to figure out.  Under some conditioins, the temporary files are not all deleted when you exit the program.  I'm sure they'll get it fixed thouth.  :brav01:
