  1. stokerg, I'm satisfied that Designer is working correctly again (it's been through the ringer). Thank you, stokerg, your idea really eliminated the problem. I'll have to remember that way of starting up Designer in the future (if the problem comes up again).
  2. stokerg, I did what you suggested, and so far Designer has not recreated the problem (and I tried numerous times). However, because the immediate closing of files was seemingly a random thing, I cannot yet be sure it won't happen again. I'll continue working with the program as usual for a time and then post the results here. Many thanks for your quick help!!
  3. In the past two weeks, Designer (in Windows 10 w/latest updates) has started closing the program right after I click on any file in the "Open" dialog box. After that, I cannot restart Designer by clicking the desktop icon. I have to use right-click and choose Open. It seems to happen randomly as I never know if whichever file I click on will actually open, but the same file opens with no problem later. Do I need to reinstall?
  4. I up-vote a "recently used brushes" panel! That would be really helpful.
  5. Thank You, Wosven and Chris_K!! That's what I was looking for. Now I, at least, know that it's not my video card, it's just my intelligence (did I say "intelligence"??). Thanks again for the explanation, and my thanks to all for their valued help.
  6. reglico, my thanks for your video. However, what you are doing doesn't quite fit in with the "problem" I ran into. I've enclosed a video to show you what happens when I do what I was talking about in my first post. Note that I am using the English version of Affinity Photo and the word Wrap is there in place of "Ajustement" on your version. Also notice that the option Extend is missing when I attempt to refill the rectangle with a different pattern. Here are the exact steps I'm taking which lead up to the problem... 1. I fill the rectangle with a bitmap pattern (Extend option is set to Wr
  7. Alfred: Yes, it is on "None", but upon changing it to Bitmap, the Extend drop-down menu is set to Wrap by default. Then, after changing Perspective and trying to fill with a different pattern, as soon as I click on the pattern I want, the screen fills up with a stretched/distorted version as in the second image of my original post, And please note this: Extend in the Toolbar disappears after the first time I use it and so I cannot change the setting before I fill with the second pattern. I assume it must be still on the default of Wrap since I could not change it. I hope I'm explaining things
  8. I understand what all of you are saying, but I cannot find the drop-down options of Wrap or Repeat anywhere. I looked in Affinity Help and also online. My apologies if this is something I should know already, but "Extend" does not seem to be in the Toolbar . See my screen-capture (You'll notice I have gradient chosen).
  9. I'm running Windows 64bit w/dual AMD 8950 video cards. In Affinity Photo, below, the image on the left is what I'm working with: I created a rectangle and then inserted a bitmap. Then I use Perspective to narrow the bottom of the rectangle. Afterwards, in the image on the right, I have chosen to change the bitmap with a different one and this is what happens. Is this a problem with AP or does it mean my vid card is screwing up? I've repeated this several times with other bitmaps and got the same results.
  10. Gnobelix, thank you for your help. However, time was critical for me and I needed the Affinity apps ASAP, so I ended up reinstalling Windows 10 in order to hopefully fix the problem. It did work, but now I have no idea what caused it in the first place. Thanks for the uninstall link, though, because I never knew about it before and I think it'll come in handy someday.
  11. Today I installed an updated graphics driver for my desktop PC running Windows 64-bit. Both Affinity Photo & Affinity Designer were open when the computer had to restart. After the reboot, both Photo and Designer crash every time I try to start a new document OR try to open a saved file. I get an error message (I've enclosed in an attachment). So I uninstalled both programs and downloaded Photo, but it still crashes with the same error (I have not bothered to download Designer). I then rolled back the graphics driver to the version that was working before with Photo & Designer, but the
  12. Thanks, dutchsader. Just goes to show how much I try to understand apps I use (embarrassing).
  13. How about an optional combined Copy & Paste choice (preferably in the context menu) so that both tasks can be performed in one click. I know that feature sure would save me a lot of extra moves & clicks.
