  1. When I place an imported image on the art-board and lock its dimensions (aka "aspect ratio") in the Transform panel it honours the aspect ratio as long as I drag one of the corner points. When I drag one of the mid points it transforms the shape not uniformly but along the X axis.
  2. Hello, After I completed my workflow and tried shutting down the app it hung and became unresponsive. The workflow was Create New Document (Cmd-N) with custom dimensions-Import a png image - Apply modifications - Export - Quit without saving. The last action caused unresponsiveness. I'm attaching a process sample here. Sample of Affinity Designer.txt
  3. Yes, thank you. I just noticed one more thing that's related to my old complaint (knock the wood): it no longer displays zigzags at the time of creating a new document and moving the art-board around as it used to strating with pre-1.7 versions.
  4. Glad, I'm not alone. Crashes under Lion 10.7.5 too, see https://ishr.site/vbSE Looks like both Lions are companions in distress (the same happened with 1.7, now the pattern repeats) Do your crash logs contain the same messages? I bet they do.
  5. Of course, I went for another browser. Safari 5 gave me nice vibes and it was so simple, fast and convenient. I use Firefox Legacy by parrotgeeks when I work in a 10.7.5 partition.
  6. Hello, I was unable to launch Affinity Designer: 4 attempts, 4 crashes. MacOS Server 10.7.5 The crash log attached below. These lines at the head of the log drove my attention particularly: Affinity Designer[12298:2e03] +[NSColor colorWithRed:green:blue:alpha:]: unrecognized selector sent to class 0x7fff74153c10 2020-02-28 19:13:42.735 Affinity Designer[12298:2e03] An uncaught exception was raised 2020-02-28 19:13:42.735 Affinity Designer[12298:2e03] +[NSColor colorWithRed:green:blue:alpha:]: unrecognized selector sent to class 0x7fff74153c10 Colour system management involved? Affinity Designer_2020-02-28-190013.crash UPDATE. I confirm that this happens in Lion, it's OK in High Sierra and Mavericks. So, bad compatibility with Lion.
  7. Oops, that's the end for browsing the forum in a very old Safari on one of my oldest machines ("couldn't establish a secure connection") - despite the age, using and browsing were buttery smooth. I could until this day. Sad but that's the reality. Apparently, updated TLS protocol and that's about the only change I noticed so far, visually it's all the same. I loved Safari 5 and 7. The most stable and robust and serif forums were those of a few that still allowed to use them in 8 y.o. browsers - no ads, nice clean old-fashioned design approach.
  8. I saw one but only after I visited this page. So, it doesn't look like a typical Mac push notification, it's more like "a local notification" – as long as you have a site open you will receive, not otherwise.
  9. Hello, This thread was the only more or less relevant thread where I thought it would be an appropriate place to post this: When I visited this site in Safari on OS X 10.9.5 I was prompted to agree to receive push notifications and I agreed in a flash. However, they don't arrive so I wonder what these notifications are supposed to be about: replies to watched threads, product news, related info?
  10. Hello, I managed to capture a lot more of this glitch. Watch what happens opening and zooming and panning across a SVG image. Affinity_Dgn-zz_1280x716_MP4.mp4
  11. Ok, so another observation of mine. The issue would go away when I record the screen. Does screen recording in macOS utilize the dedicated graphics card if it's present in the machine (it is in mine - nVidia GT 650M)? If yes then this tells me that at some point hardware acceleration is not used properly in 10.7.5. BTW, it occasionally would happen in 10.9.5 as well. As for the requested pictures I already had uploaded screenshots earlier in the other thread about the same issue, click the link. Stripped artboard - Lion
  12. The issue has mystically gone. I don't know what caused it. I have both old and new versions.
