I upgraded to the latest update via the AppStore. After this, the app does not start.

It is blocked at trying to open the last opened file. How can I fix this?

Ok, I finally fixed this. I moved the pixelmator plist file out of ~/Library/Preferences. And then restarted the machine. I also did a Shift+double click on the app. I don't know if that helped, but might be useful for the next person.

In the community conversation somewhere, there was an old link to resetting Pixelmator. That link is dead now. Is there an updated link?

We had to change our helpdesk provider, so those links unfortunately died... Here's the latest link: https://pixelmator.freshdesk.com/suppor ... lmator-pro

P.S. Glad to hear you manage to resolve the issue, whatever it may have been!
