    Then download the latest update for SharePoint Designer 2013(Prerequisite to apply this update, you must have Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2013 Service Pack 1 installed.):

    If the issue persists, have a try to clear SharePoint designer 2013 cache. See the steps in this article: How to Clear Your SharePoint Designer 2010/2013 Cache.

    Also try to uninstall and reinstall SharePoint designer 2013 if the above steps don't fix this issue.
