  1. WOW! Just updated to 1.8.1 that was fast. All working again now. Thank you Serif.
  2. Same for me, so just need to wait for version 1.8.1 of publisher as not compatible with newer versions. Makes sense. My wife keeps telling me I need to be patient...
  3. Hi Chris, The photos I am adjusting are stock photos in most cases. Have attached a crash report. Affinity Photo_2019-12-16-115009_iMac.crash
  4. So I have just done the usual delete and start again so deleted Affinity Photo from applications folder and reinstalled. Imported a large jpg file and all seemed fine, resizing and moving the image around worked fine. I mask that jpg and refine it, create a new layer with masking. Same again if I move the image, resize it or adjust in any way it seems to work OK. Until I resize so that all the handles fit into the main work area. As soon as I drag the sizing handle into the main window then Photo crashes.
  5. I open a jpg file, do some editing such as masking, hit cmnd C, jump to the other file and hit cmnd V, as soon as I resize or move or rotate the image it crashes. This also occurs if I drag a jpg directly into the page. afphoto or afdesign files, either crash.
  6. Hi Chris, Don't think that would help as the file never saves so it would not help with the history. Also this is not the only file it does this on. If I create a new file and do the same this it crashes. I am now using Affinity Publisher rather than Photo and all is working fine, Photo is the only issue.
  7. When I copy and paste or place an image inside a smaller area and then resize or move that image Photo will crash. Several images crash the system when I just move them around or simply rotate them. Video attached. Very frustrating. I am using the latest Catalina OS and version 1.73 of Photo. affinity-photo-crash-moving-image.mov
  8. Is it possible to make the Move tool the default option rather than the view tool? I have tried removing the view tool (hand symbol) from the toolbar altogether as I very rarely use it and if I do need it I just need to hold down the space bar and drag, so it is a bit redundant and gets in the way as every time I think I am using the Move tool and I end up dragging the view around the screen, then have to switch to the Move tool, very frustrating for me. I really hope it is something I can set and if it is not then it should be available, I really need to set Move tool as default.
  9. I have looked through all the preferences screens and cannot find anything regarding this "feature" so maybe you can help point me i the right direction. Every time I change the size of an image document the new image is shown full screen, I don't mind if the image is larger than the actual screen size, that would be fine, but when the image is smaller than the screen it is annoying that I then have to hit CMD 1 to show it as normal size. Either display it as normal size or at least leave it set to whatever it was prior to the resizing of the document, would be great if this was a setting that could be adjusted for personal preference. Thanks.
  10. I am using High Sierra 10.13.6 I don't right click or rename a file. I only click a filename to use it as a start for the name of the new file.
  11. Hi Chris, May have been me that reported originally, not seen any answer to this and it is still occurring. I have attempted to extricate myself from this in many ways, including escape, various CMD ALT, CTRL, and combinations, nothing works. This is the save window no other app or window is interfering, the save dialog is getting confused or maybe thinks it is opening a folder rather than a file. Usually only happens when saving and selecting a filename that already exists and then changing the name before clicking save button. Doesn't always happen and I am not sure what occurs prior to make this happens. I could have saved a dozen files without incident and then BAM I need to force quit. David
  12. When saving after I click another file to use the same filename and then edit the filename so it is using the same details but slightly different, I click save but get an empty box as though the finder has tried to open a folder but that folder has nothing in it. See attached. I was saving a file called grand-motorbilia-day-bikes but first clicked on a file called grand-motorbilia-day-viper and changed the end bit to bikes. This happens very occasionally but when it dos I cannot do anything other than force quit. Sometimes when restarting it has a recovery file but in most cases not.
  13. Exporting in Affinity Designer on Mac I have encountered this error a few times but not necessarily every time I export. Usually when I need to export as a similar name to one that already exists. I select to export the file, change the file type and size then click export. Then I find the folder to export to and select a filename that I want to call the file but then add something to the end such as -white or -logo or -newversion etc. This then looks like it is going to show a different folder but clears the export window (see attached image) entirely and does not allow anything else to be done, all keyboard use produces a beep and mouse does not work on any buttons. I have checked all background tasks and there is nothing showing, no windows or option or error boxes. I cannot select any other part of the screen and cannot return to the work in progress and so have to force quit and recover files (if lucky). Help! This is most frustrating.
  14. Same thing happens every time for me. Tried with mouse and worked OK. Seems to be with Bamboo Tablet. Time for an upgrade I think. Thanks for your help Chris.
