(FIXED) Affinity Designer Not Responding on Windows 10

Adobe applications run on a membership module. It is not cheaper than purchasing the apps in advance as a subscription is an ongoing cost that you pay while using the apps. At some point, the subscription will become more expensive than the one-time license fee, if Adobe continues to offer. If you do not use Adobe apps every day but use them often enough, the subscription will look expensive.

Despite Adobe’s membership model for all of its apps, users have looked for alternatives and Affinity offers one of the best. Affinity has an app to compete with Adobe’s Illustrator called Affinity Designer. It is an excellent app that costs $ 25 for one desktop license. Currently, the app is halfway and comes with a free 90-day trial.

Designer Affinity does not respond

Affinity Designer is a stable app and can work with large files, including those created in Adobe Illustrator. You do not need to log into a service to use it, and it does not run additional / unnecessary services in the background when it runs. This makes it very light but not immune to problems.

If Affinity Designer fails to open, open but immediately stop responding, or it will stop responding as soon as you start editing a file, try the solutions below.

Install and reset Affinity Designer

Problems with Affinity Designer may be related to the app not installing or updating properly. This can happen if a user or other system process has stopped installing or updating. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the app.

  1. Open Control Panel.
  2. go to Programs> Enter a program.
  3. Choose Relationship planner and click on the Uninstalled button at the top.
  4. Allow the app to uninstall.
  5. Download and install Affinity Designer.

Note: If you have lost your product key for Affinity Designer, sign in to your account on the Affinity website. Click on your profile at the top right and select My Account> Download and Product keys.

Go back to an older version

Affinity updates its apps from time to time but not all updates work except for the older version. If you’ve updated Affinity Designer, and the new version is causing problems, it’s easy to go back.

  1. Open Control Panel.
  2. go to Programs> Enter a program.
  3. Choose an Affinity Designer and click on Uninstall.
  4. Once the app is installed, install it visit the Affinity Designer download page.
  5. Download the version that was running without problems on your system.
  6. Run the file and install the older version of Affinity Designer.

Check the file for problems

Affinity Designer can handle files created in Adobe Illustrator but there may be exceptions. Check that Affinity Designer runs smoothly when entering or opening other files. If it only has problems with a specific file, it may not be Affinity Designer’s fault. Check the file for components eg phones or brushes or items, which may be causing problems and try to remove them using a different app.


Affinity offers some of the best alternatives to Adobe products. They are all one-time purchase apps, their price tags are affordable and far more affordable than any Adobe product has ever been. They do not offer all the features that Adobe does. Affinity apps are certainly lighter in terms of features but for occasional frequent use, they are a good choice.
