  1. Thank you for the new beta. The Recent, Used, etc. font categories are very blurry on the font selector. Using non-retina screen with MacOS Sierra.

    Affinity Designer: hangs on startup, no studio

    I'm using US English, and no other language is installed on the machine. My OS is El Cap 10.11.2 (15C50) On that note, I disabled all my dictionaries in Settings > Keyboard > Text, and left only the English one (a custom Hungarian spelling dictionary was installed on my account a few years ago in ~/Library/Spelling/), and the 1.4 and beta versions are starting normally, even after I remove the entire ~/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner folder. So it must be a dictionary issue with the latest OSX version.
  3. Hello, Recently upgraded to 1.4 and my toolbars went awry (see attached screenshots). I reset the toolbar (dbl clicked on the toolbar, jumped back to place) , then I noticed that studio is missing. When I reset those from view menu everything seemed ok. Opened a document, but the layers were missing. SO decided to restart AD. After restart just hang on the startup logo. After a little digging around, I found that if I delete the ~/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner/Data/Library folder and started the app, everything was working properly as with the previous version. If I delete the ~/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner, the app recreates it, but still have the problems above. So only the ~/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner/Data/Library needs to be removed, and everything works. Tested with the beta verision, have the same problem. After every hang the app resets and toolbars and studio is missing. Created a new user account, on that account it works properly. Deleted all preferences on this account, deleted caches (both ~/Library/Caches and /Library/Caches), same problem. Attached also the exceptions thrown from the console. Any idea why this is happening only on this account? Tested on a different computer, fresh install, no problems there. Same thing occurs with AP also, and this workaround fixes it. Thank you. ad.log.txt
  4. Have the same issue on 1.4 (from app store). Created a secondary test account on my mac, issue is not visible on that account. Both photo and designer have this issue. Using El Cap 10.11.2
  5. Thank you for the quick reply. Lets hope that the app will be ported to older versions of osx (especially Mavericks) for a couple more years.
  6. Hello, I bought recently Designer and Photo from the app store. I'm impressed by both applications, and I'm planning to convert all my design and artwork to these two apps. Is it possible to release a version outside of the app store? On my production machines the OS doesn't change that often, especially with many OSX problems recenly, so I don't want to lose these apps in a few years from now, when Apple changes something on their part (like with today with the expired certificates where I cannot launch an older version of Tweetbot anymore). Thank you.
