tipforeveryone reacted to Gabe in AD crashes when drag/drop saved group of artboards from asset window
Thank you. I managed to reproduce it and logged it with our developers.
tipforeveryone reacted to MEB in Artboards getting scaled up 1 pixel on Export
Check the X,Y coordinates of the artboards in the Transform panel (make sure the Move Toll is selected and that you have their layer selected in the Layers panel as well). They are probably not integer values. Remove the decimal part and export them. This should fix the issue. To prevent this from happening enable Force Pixel Alignment in the main toolbar (and make sure Move By Whole Pixels - the button immediately on the right - is disabled otherwise the decimal values will be kept when you move the artboards.
Note that If you duplicate the Artboards in the workspace pressing ⌥ (option/alt) and dragging them you are overriding the Snapping options (including Force Pixel Alignment), so use ⌃(ctrl) ⌘ (cmd) instead to duplicate them (it honours the snapping settings).
tipforeveryone reacted to fifi in Color picker in affinity vs other software video example (doesn't pick color often)
When using alt for color picker magnifying glass seems to instantly launch and makes my color picker do weird things, making it too frustrating to pick colors quickly.
When switching to color picker using a shortcut magnifying glass seems not to even begin loading unless i move cursor a little bit with pen pressure applied, which works great for me since color picking is accurate, fast and just like in other software. However if I switch off color picker too quickly (happens alot) or even before I release pen pressure line appears.
Please consider doing something about magnifying glass if it's in fact the cause. It's neat for vector stuff, but for painting for me I prefer to be able to pick a color fast just how other programs do it.
Also I promise I don't miss colors on purpose! Trying my best.

tipforeveryone reacted to DegasBrush in Crash When Using Pen Tool
I'm glad I found this thread though not before creating my own about the same issue!
What I did want to add was that in Designer I tried starting a new document at 72dpi with and without the artboard and simply took the pen took and added lines and nodes and in each case kept crashing at various numbers of nodes added.. in the project I'm trying to work on I had a couple of instances where the app crashed after adding only three or so new nodes!! I hope that helps further with fixing the issue..
tipforeveryone reacted to hansmbakker in SVG importing bug
It seems that Affinity Designer can't handle some of the SVG content in the digikam and showfoto logos.
Text is lost "Lens glass" has different blur / transparency Shadow / blur around the lens is gone Sources of the files can be found at

tipforeveryone reacted to DegasBrush in Crashes and CPU spike using Pen tool
ooops didn't see the other thread!!!... my bad for not searching or turning the page first... I also didn't mention that this issue still occurs in the current beta also...
My issue is exactly as @tipforeveryone
If you stop the video on the frame when the crash occurs you will see in the performance chart GPU is at 100%..
Good to see you're on this issue...

Welcome resunoiz to this forum!
We often read complaints about stability in this forum. And to be honest: Serif could improve at this end. But - to my experience - instability is very often caused by outdated drivers (or notoriusly unreliable Windows updates). In your case Affinity photo proves almost unusable, in other cases (mine included) it works like a charm. We use APhoto and ADesigner in our agency without any reason to complain about. Maybe we are just lucky, maybe we simply don't test the limits... whatever the reasons might be: Your description of problems is quite unspecific that it will be hard for anyone here to offer help.
tipforeveryone reacted to Chris J in Crash When Using Pen Tool
Thanks for the video. I managed to get it to crash in the debugger and indeed there is no crash report generated. (@crafcik There is normally a crash report window which pops up with a reference number which you can send us) Not sure yet why this is not happening here. Anyway, i'm now edging a little closer . More soon.

Here is my new video, in this one, AD crashed 3 times in a row while using pentool to trace an image
I opened Task Manager for you to monitor my computer resources when AD run
Hope this help developers to fix this or at least reproduce the error
I use AD for windows, and this happen to AP too
tipforeveryone reacted to Chris B in Copy/Paste Style sometimes multiplies stroke width
I can't tell you why this happens but we have seen it in the past. I'll add your video to the bug report. Sorry about this.
tipforeveryone reacted to voitek in Sneak peeks for 1.7
Is move tool going to work more like free transform in Photoshop? I'm not gonna lie, and this is one of the basic tools that work great in PS and doesn't have a real equivalent in Affinity.
Edit: Just watched the clip and it's not the case this time.
tipforeveryone reacted to Mark Ingram in This is how AD crash and make me upset
I've looked into this crash today, as I've seen it before, but not been able to reproduce it until now. I think I know what's causing it now, and will look at getting a fix sorted. Unfortunately there isn't a work around for this, just ensure that you're saving regularly.
tipforeveryone got a reaction from Unsatisfied ex-customer in This is how AD crash and make me upset
In this captured video, you will see AD crash 2 times while I am using Pen tool to trace the image for exercise
This happened many times and some ruined my hard work, no error log, no warning, just disappear. Sometime there are "windows debug" box. please fix this,
Same thing happens to Pen tool in AP
tipforeveryone reacted to Chris B in AD crashed when choosing asset on the list
I'll send you a Dropbox link to download the assets. I've also removed your folder containing them. I imagine you have spent some time developing these so it would be best to keep them private.
You will first need to make sure you've deleted the assets.propcol folder located in %AppData%\Affinity\Designer\1.0\user\
Then, just open the Assets Panel and click the Preferences button > Import Assets. I'm convinced it is the Web design elements category causing this so I'd be interested to see how you get on. Meanwhile I'll get this logged with development. This means, for the moment, you won't have access to the contents of the category. I hope this doesn't inconvenience you too much
