  1. Hi @joanroig I tried to open the file on my Mac and it crashed, even with the layers tab closed. I have the crash log so will get someone to take a look at it.

    I have managed to open it on Windows by following @Komatös's advice above. I also created a symbol of my own with Open CL activated and haven't been able to get it to crash. I think the cause will have some other / additional prerequisites. Did you add a colour tag? Was the image created in Designer or imported from somewhere else?

  2. Hi @Bowzer It's good to hear that you love Affinity Designer. Just following up on the 3 issues that you mention. I'd like to get a bit more info to enable me to recreate them here.

    1. Would you be able to provide a video of the 'one finger' touch issue. I'd like to see the steps you are doing.

    2. What tool do you have your Double Tap set to? I just checked mine thinking it was set to Undo and it was set to Node Tool. I'm not sure when this changed.

    3. Would you be able to add this to Feature Requests and Suggestions? As it is more of an improvement suggestion rather than a bug it will be best over there.


  3. Hi @gaegury I have reproduced this issue using a tiny shape of under 10px in both Affinity Designer & Illustrator. I also created the shapes at around 560px, divided them and them scaled them down and the issue wasn't there. 

    I think when working on very tiny files it's worth having another working area where you can make the shapes larger first. I do this sometimes when creating repeat patterns, where I have another artboard for creating the assets next to the one where I lay them out.

  4. Hi @DonCarlos I've been unable to reproduce the issue here. Would you be able to upload a copy of your user data here please? That way we can take a closer look at what is happening.

    The user data can be found here:


    Affinity Store version:
    Affinity Designer: %appdata%\Affinity\Designer\1.0\user\
    Microsoft Store version
    Affinity Designer: %appdata%\Affinity\Designer\1.0 (Store)\user\

  5. Hi @Antony parks I can see that a lot of good advice has been given already so I won't repeat it. I've created a number of floral repeat patterns and did so by creating 3 or 4 different coloured flowers and adding them to Assets. I create them on a tiny little work artboard at the side of my main one, and add them as Assets as I go. Then when I need to break up the uniformity I add a different one and change the size / flip it / rotate it etc. 

    I'm not sure that Symbols are really what you need here. It feels like it is complicating things more than it needs to.

    I found Liz Kohler-Brown really simplified repeat patterns for me and she has quite a few Affinity Designer tutorials on the subject.
