  1. They won't see my V3 purchase, that's for sure! And I was pro Affinity for a long time, but recently just talked off 2 of my buddies on purchasing this poop. So yeah.. The damage is done. I would VERY MUCH LOVE affinity, but this is just plain bull$shit. Hunger for money and bad coding, regardless what other admins are saying "ooo they are very talented".. Yeah and a 2021 issue is still present in 2023, and will be for versions to come. How much do you guys want to bet that 2.1 won't fix this? 😂😂
  2. I don't believe 3 months is such a short time.. And then again, if the app was unstable and so full of bugs, why was it released? Why rush a beta and try to fix it to "launch version" in half a year?... Second, I wasn't the one to set the price for your app. I paid whatever you asked for, it's not my problem you have weak or cheap devs.. I would have even paid 2x the price, for a smooth app. Some bugs I constantly report, are present from V1!!! Like the hang bug from export persona. It's carried on like a STD from version to version.. But yeah, will wait for 2.1 to see how much you guys do care.
  3. 2.0.4 Still not fixed. As usual!! Thank you Serif for taking our posts seriously!
  4. That comment was for loukash, he seems to accept things "as is". That's not how things work.. it needs improvement because it's more logical to use that tool as in V1. You don't know how annoying a small thing like this is, until you work with a lot of artboards.. But yeah, V2 so far is pretty bad.. I got it for the warp tool, which I haven't used yet.. And for the knife tool. Other than that, a LOT of bad bugs in V2, and it's been enough time since release. OFFTOPIC: This is how devs work nowadays, release a poop, then polish it. Look in the gaming world! Cyberpunk, Battlefield 2042, Callisto Protocol and so on.. I am so fed up with this mentality because whatever I purchase, I have to wait for the fixes.. the only thing you can do is come to the forum and post again and again, because otherwise they will bury it and when V3 comes out, you have the same bugs..
  5. It's not about hating on other people, it's about getting the app fixed and improved!!! It has potential. Funny how every bug is logged, forwarded, but ignored at next update...
  6. But why would we want another tool to do what the move tool does? What kind of F-d logic is that? Have all the tools select objects, but no tool to select artboards fast.. By clicking on an object with the artboard tool, it does exactly what the artboard tool shouldn't do. Isn't it logical to select artboard tool because I want to add/modify artboard? Why not make the color picker select objects? Maybe I want to select objects with the color picker then..
  7. It's not, it's still there. Use the app more, and it will hang. IT JUST HANG FOR ME. Edit: And after one OK export, again.. Honestly, I don't know why bug reports even exist. Why this section of the forum exists. Nobody is reaching out to no one, to even try to narrow down the list of potential issues. IT'S REPORTED OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER again, and nothing!
  8. Well, 2.0.3 didn't fix it, 2.0.4 didn't fix it. Maybe 3.0.0 ARE YOU SERIOUS GUYS??? IT'S BEEN LOGGED SINCE 2021!!!! WHEN????
  9. It was present in Big Sur too, don't link it to Ventura! Also, if OS would be the issue, how come I don't have problems with Capture One, Photoshop, Final cut and so on? It's just export persona in Serif apps.
  10. IT'S NOT DOCUMENT RELATED!!! I can work on a 1000x1000 pixel artboard or 5x5 meter artboard, the crash will happen enetually. I have iCloud and Gdrive, but never save to them. They are just there for other things. Even Mega file transfer all. I just export to desktop. In V1, it worked fine after 2-3 crashes, until you rebooted the OS. For me at least, after it started to work, all affinity NEWLY SAVED files had no thumbnails. When thumbnails showed up again (after reboot), I knew it was going to happen. It was happening in Big Sur too, so it's not ventura issue. I just think they messed up the coding in export persona, and a sh!t coding + some app causes the crash. "Save as" works as should, every time!!! Export persona hangs.. I have sent in all my crash reports, nothing happened. I don't understand why the critical bugs aren't hotfixed.. Like this one, and the one where it randomly replaces your images in your files.. I send in all my crash reports, I calmly gave details about this issue when it started to happen back in 2021, yet nothing has been fixed. WTF else should I do? Send in my laptop? V1 had issues, V2 elevated the issues.. The least they could do is ask for logs in a separate thread, and analyse them.. I can't send you files because it happens randomly, with every file type (artboards to jpeg, artboards to pdf, etc), I can reproduce it in video, as it happens often, but whats' the point of that? It only shows how I click on export, and when Finder comes up, beachball.. Mods could replicate the hang in V1, it is a known bug, but apparently, management and coding is poor AF!

  12. Honestly, I don't understand why are you guys debating this.. the issue is reported as a known bug, there is no workaround! Export persona is FKD up for some users, because "save as" works fine, every time!. They only issue lies in EXPORT PERSONA! There is nothing you can do, as OTHER APPS WORK FINE, only Serif apps hang. I have sent tens of bug reports to serif, if they read it, good, if not, the problem will persist in V3 as well. Mine hangs immediately after I press export. I'm not even able to change folders. EVERY TIME. I get 1-2 exports after a hang, and loop. Started in 2021 in V1, reported it, continued in 2022, now in V2. WTF should I do? I invested time and money in Serif.. And no solution was given. We have in common external SSD's and cloud drives, even tho we are not exporting to them! I have tried everything. At least in V1 after 2 crashes, it worked fine afterwards until an OS reboot. But V2 just loops the crash!
  13. Nothing. I have this issue since 2021. They did absolutely nothing! Well, they released V2, clean install, and crashes got even worse than in V1. Just today, working on a SINGLE document, I've had 6 crashes in export persona, as I tried different variants, saved, sent to client, feedback, etc. save with new modifications, crash after crash. there is NOTHING you can do, the problem is well known, but nobody gives a rats a$$. I've been sending in my crash reports like crazy, NOTHING HAPPENED. So yeah, welcome to the club save often
  14. Is anybody reading the crash reports? Or are they directly going into the trash because it sure feels like so. Would be a shame to delete all my "F*** you nr. n+1" reports! I send quite a few /day. I have absolutely no issue with other apps, and AT LEAST 7-8 crashes /day from affinity.
  15. Nope. It's 2 months since the thread was started and 1 year and 2 months ++ since problem was reported. Still NOTHING! I just force close the app 5-6-7x /day, send a FU message in error report and a number, counting up for every crash. It's not my fault they are unable to fix a problem that has been lingering for one and a half year now. IMO they should just dump the whole export persona and redo it from the ground up, as it's the only part where app crashes constantly.
  16. OFC it's not fixed :))))))) only the save to SSD was fixed. At this point I'm not even sure what the issue is.. is it they are a big company and there is no communication, or are they small and poor and don't have the manpower?? What do I need to do to get the bugs fixed??? Should I send in my laptop, because my daily 4-5 sent crash reports aren't enough I see.. I swear, this has to be the most trash customer support I have EVER seen! (and I'm not talking about the mods, who reply and try to help).
  17. BRAVO AFFINITY !! Photoshop copy paste selections show up fine until you close the document, after, well, tough luck. Probably will get a fix by summer. So now I need to work more, exporting files instead of simply copy paste.
  18. Will the bugs ever end FFS??? Now the images I have copy-pasted from photoshop get overwritten randomly. I have corrected it 2x so far, but every time I open they are all the same image.. Yet in the preview of the file (smaller image - MAC preview), you can clearly see they are different! WTF dudes??? How many workaround do I need to do to finish a damn job? I used copy paste from photoshop into Designer since forever, always worked. I swear, when you guys fix something you FK up 3 other things. Cussing won't help? WELL HOW ABOUT ME NOT GETTING THE JOB DONE?!?! It will be the 3rd time I replace them..
  19. Yeah, welcome to the crash club. Good luck waiting for a fix, it's been around since 2021. It took them 2 months to fix the save to external SSD issue :))))))))) Whenever I export, I have to force close about 5-6x /day. I always leave them a nice "FU" message in crash report, as they deserve nothing else! Since FKN 2021 !!!!!!! I wanted to believe in them, further support them by purchasing V2, believing they will fix this. Boy was I wrong, lazy a$s devs!
  20. I don't get it why aren't they updating export persona if they cant fix this issue. "Save as" works, "save" also works, only damn export persona has issues!!
  21. History doesn't matter, as the point is recorded once you make the adjustment and let go. That is a state, but not in history panel. Then another state is when you add and move another point. Moving forward and backwards is possible in PS. I just installed V1 and it's not working. Either a patch messed it up or I can't recall. Yes the workaround would be adjust then close panel, then adjust again.. But that seems primitive, when other apps allow it. In PS i could get 2-3-4 states. But in affinity if I hit undo after a point, it closes the panel instead of deleting the last point.
  22. +1, I used the undo when I messed up a point in curves, and moved back one step only.. PS does the same..
  23. I believe 97% of people here don't work with artboards, as I don't understand how else they are not furious with the constant crashes.. Working with artboards "forces" you to use export persona, where freeze bug lives.. Also working with artboards forces you to move stuff around, revealing selection bug.. For others to understand my frustration, the day before yesterday, I had to modify a project, I was working on it, random crash.. I opened the file again, luckily I had just a few modifications to do, worked on it, hit save... file was on external ssd, so It close on me... I opened it up again, modified, saved to local ssd, went to export persona to export for client - it froze... SO I OPENED IT UP AGAIN and that time it worked. I wonder how many would work like that, on 6-7 different projects (all with 7-10 different artboards) and be sane after a day like that.
  24. That backwards compatibility issue killed all my chances going back to V1.. V2 has at least 2x the amount of bugs V1 had! It's simply unacceptable that after today's update, NOTHING was fixed. Well, beside the save to external SSD issue which should have been hotfixed 1 week after launch as that was a SERIOUS issue.
