  1. OK, we seem to have some progress! Switched to the WARP drivers (something that never occurred to me to try) and was able to draw numerous objects, resize and move objects, change grid settings, use snapping and draw over a relativity lengthy time period. This is something I had not been able to do up to this point. I switched back to the Intel drivers opened the same document and almost immediately had a crash when I started to draw. So it would seem to be a driver issue then (fingers crossed). Using WARP is not a big issue at this point and is better then struggling in Inkscape. I've still attached the event log which should have a least two crash events in the time period covered. I see that a new version of Designer is available this was done in version 1.8.2.620 Thanks, Anthony Crash Events.evtx
  2. OK, tried to screen record but of course crashed PC, no video. So we had to record the screen on a phone but you'll get the gist I'm sure. Its odd sometimes I'll just have to start drawing on the canvas and it will crash, sometimes I'll have several minutes before it goes. the actions required too crash the app do seem to vary but it will always crash! The crash is always the the whole PC not just the app. Intel driver need updating but Lenovo don't seem in any hurry to sign the updates off, not even sure it would have any effect. Have also included the app data from the filmed crash but don't think there is anything there. Regards, Anthony Affinity_Designer_Iso_Grid_Crash.mp4 1.0.zip
  3. Hi Sean, Its a funny thing, well not funny but a real pain. I purchased Affinity Photo recently and have the exact same issue with Isometric grids in Photo. I now think its somehow connected to grid snapping. If I unset snap to guides (though I'm not using guides) and keep grid subdivisions down it seems to buy me some time before a crash. My computer is not the most powerful but I use Isometric grids in Inkscape without issue and even run Blender and Cinema 4D OK. I monitored CPU and memory performance and all seem reasonable low before any crash happens. Not that I'm an expert on these things but Designer does not seem to be able to capture the crashes. Thanks for the reply, stay well. Anthony 1.0.zip
  4. I have some crash reports from an earlier install, but I'm not sure that they are capturing the crash, pretty certain its not. I'll induce a crash also anyway. My Crash Reports.zip Open designer New Doc (web) Opens with grid Open grid and axis manager - select Isometric preset Draw rectangle click - crash If I manually setup a grid it is somewhat more stable. I'm totally stumped. I've not installed any new software since Designer metadata options.json settings.dat attachment_Log.txt attachment_Log.txt attachment_Log.txt attachment_Log.txt metadata options.json 0cc322ff-8007-48a4-b84e-4d8f394f00c0.dmp 7478c6a7-2ad4-4b88-ab67-29ce293487e1.dmp b471a211-f51c-4fd9-8a7c-907ea351e9ac.dmp d7958b6e-e42d-4412-b7e1-c2473738c436.dmp settings.dat metadata options.json settings.dat My Crash Reports.zip
  5. Have posted this in the Windows bugs section but also posting here in the hope it will get more traffic, so sorry if the post seems in the wrong place. Have to re revisit this as this is issue has returned. Having reinstalled Designer (see previous post) I thought the issue had resolved but it has returned. The first document (Crash Test 1) that I opened allows me to made alterations to the grid setting without crashing and still does if I reopen it and work in it all is well. All subsequent documents (Crash Test 2) crash as soon as grid setting are altered. Cannot do anything in the grid and axis manager without a crash, with the exception of this one document. I use isometric grids frequently so this is a big problem for me. I've updated all drivers, even reinstalled Windows, reinstalled Designer, deleted app data which seem to result in the one usable document I have. Does anyone have any idea how I can solve this or what is causing this issue. Have attached the working file and a crashing file example. Thanks in advance and desperation, Anthony. Update: I think that whatever is causing these crashes ls linked to the grid presets. If I manually set the grids it seems OK, if I start with or change to one of the preset it immediately crashes. Stumbling around in the dark a bit though. Affinity Designer Crash.zip

  7. Hi all, I have an issue with Affinity Designer crashing when I use grids. Been using Designer for about a month and experienced the occasional crash when drawing on to isometric grid. However now I set up my grid go to draw and as soon as I click on the canvas it crashes the computer, every time now. Update 15/02/2020: The issue seems to triggered by hesitation when drawing on the canvas either with mouse or pen when the grid is active. If I stop moving even for a fraction of a second crash. Sometimes the computer freezes sometime it blue screens. Update 16/02/2020: Updated the graphics drivers in the hope that they maybe the cause of the issue. Grid show on opening a new document and works and does not crash until the grids and axis manager is opened. Then it either crashes as soon as any changes are made to grid settings or as so as I try and draw on the canvas having altered grid settings. Attempting to access the grids and axis manager from the studio isometric panel also results in a crash also. Resulting crashes are programme and computer frozen or blue screen. Update 17/02/2020: I think I've solved the issue (figures crossed). I reinstalled Designer (which I had done several times before). This time though I deleted App Data, restarting my computer between each stage. Interesting to note that when I was having these issues the grids preset menu was empty, after the last reinstall it is populated again. Hope this is of some help to someone, sometime. Anyone else have this issue or know the cause? Thanks in advance Anthony
  8. Yes, I also have a similar issue with Wacom Bamboo running Windows. It sometimes starts to work again but usually have to shut the programme, which it allows me to do. Very strange.I can sometimes interact with the canvas but not menus or tools. Also having crash problems when using isometric grids but that's another story.
  9. Thank you again. I knew I'd done something just couldn't figure it out. Still I'm generally liking Affinity.
  10. Yes I see with the Transparency Tool selected. Thank you, but how can you tell that transparency has been applied?
  11. Thanks for your reply, I'm still a bit mystified by this as I've done all of those things and still cannot remove the gradient. As I look at my screen now the fill is set to solid but the object is still a gradient! I've tried solid fill, no fill, new fill, I've deselected the fill tool and clicked a colour in the colour panel with the object selected. The only effect is to change the colour of the gradient. None and Solid remove the fill but as soon as I edit the fill, say to change colour the fill returns. I'm familiar with AI, Inkscape etc so understand the concepts but this is driving me crazy and I've spent quite some time trying to figure it out. I've included a screen shot if this might help.
  12. Hello all, I've just starting using Affinity designer (trail) and like it very much. I have a little problem though and I'm sure that when someone points out what I'm doing wrong I'll kick myself. I've applied a gradient to an object and now want to return it to a solid fill but I cant find a way of removing the gradient. If I create another fill and apply it always is set to gradient when I apply it the object. I've tried setting no fill creating a new fill then applying it but always its a gradient fill! I'm sure the solution is simple and obvious but I'm missing something here. Thanks in advance, Anthony
