    They all worked under the previous OS version. I can't remember when, how and why I started to have this problem... except from my first post here (above) I was having trouble with OS10.15.

    And just to make my point, I couldn't open Publisher/Designer earlier today until I booted into Safe Mode. I just closed and opened up Publisher/Designer and they opened. :(

    So something isn't talking to something else. I could go to another acc' to test it. But I'll wait until I can't open them again to check.

    I remember this, because basically every software had issue with this Mac version. 
    IMHO if all the softwares worked with an older version you should look into downgrading.

    Hope it works out for you.

    Nope, because with all the apps on my OS, the trouble has been with Designer/Publisher. So something is up between the OS and the apps. 

    I also have Pixelmator/Pixelmator Pro and all the other apps I have on my computer and theres no problem with any of them.. 


    Not too sure but I believe the problem lies with the editing programs such as illustrator, photoshop and of course by extension the affinity suite as well.

    Is your other programs wont work under a downgraded version of mac OS?

    seems a bit odd.

    Its been awhile.. 

    I understand your not manned 24/7 for support. My comment wan't meant to sound negative, just no responses. thats all.

    As for my initial problem, I still have it. Designer and Publisher don't open, I go to Safe mode and they do. I restart and they do, but then eventually stop opening again. IMHO its in the OS10.15.1 

    I bought Designer through the Apple store and I signed up for the Beta of Publisher. So 2 different purchases. 

    In any case, The problem is still there. 


    Have you thought about downgrading your OS?

    Thank you for your responses.

    Thank you and I only have Affinity Designer so far. I've installed some fonts and they seem to show up there so that's working :)


    I've designed a few sites but I'm looking to see if there's a Bootstrap set of assets I could drag and drop like alerts, etc similar to the iOS ones? Can be free or paid for but I'll check that link out now.

    I don't think there are bootstrap resources.

    I'm not too sure but I don't think Affinity CS really supports it.

    Right, so you had two blank artboards, i had been testing with items on both of mine.  I can replicate it with blank artboards and to be honest i'm not sure if its a bug or not.  The selection tool is look for pixel data, which isn't currently there with blank artboards so this might be expected.  If you add a Pixel Layer to the artboard and then try using the selection tools again, it shouldn't select the 2nd artboard.

    I’m doing it with images and it does that so I’m pretty sure its a bug.

    This is not a statement I am comfortable with on our forums. When making sweeping statements like this can you please link to where you saw the information. Then users can see if it represents the problem they are experiencing and perhaps also know when it has been sorted. 

    Peter J G,

    Sorry, but these forums are not manned by staff 24 hours per day and a post made at 8:10 in the evening will likely only be responded to by forum regulars (other customers) or picked up the next working day.

    I am pleased you have resolved this yourself. Please post back if it returns so we can assist in finding a possible cause. Furthermore when reporting a problem like this which does not affect all of our mac users and so must be more specific than generic, please try to give as much information as possible. Did it start when you upgraded the OS, did it start when you updated to a new version, which store did you get the installs from (they can behave slightly differently). Indeed can you provide this now even though it seems to have resolved itself, as it would be useful to know what happened to you in case someone else reports the same issue.

    My comment isn’t something I just made up, I saw it on the affinity twitter and they were saying it’s affecting all softwares so...

    You would need to update to 1.8 once it's available (or install the beta) to get the Stock panel in Designer, but that will be a free update once you own Designer. 1.8 is currently in beta and the free trial is 1.7.

    I intend on buying AD,

    I really like it.

    Can you send me the feature list for 1.8?

    BTW it seems kinda weird that I saw a video saying it was a 1.7 feature.

    Is that just for AP?

    Preferences -> Tools -> Select object when intersects with selection marquee

    or just clicking left with the mouse. But I think you meant the selection rectangle?

    Hi Cursed,

    Welcome to the Affinity forums!

    There are many useful options in the Affinity application preferences, for instance this might meet your need:




    Exactly what I meant.

    Thanks guys!

    I do not think it is possible. I'm curious, why do you want Alt rather than Ctrl?

    By the way, there is a Preference setting, under Tools, that will reverse the behavior, and cause the mouse wheel to zoom without using Ctrl, rather than panning:


    Then, if you press Ctrl is will pan instead of zooming.


    Its an old habit from AI so I would like to keep it.

    but it not a deal breaker so I guess ill just adapt.

    Welcome the the Serif Affinity forums, @Cursed.

    Yes, but what does the title mean? You can already zoom in and out today with the mouse wheel and the Ctrl key.

    What aspect of that behavior do you want to change, and how do you want it to operate after the change?

    I'm trying to change to ALT instead of CTRL,

    is this possible?
