  1. Outside the usual crashes Photo likes to provide me, I am now getting crashes during Batch Conversions. It will do 1-3 photos in the group from HEIC to JPEG before crashing completely with no logs. I've seen older topics about this but I am not seeing solutions. I have removed the Parallel Processing as some have suggested but it does not help. Has a solution been found?
  2. I am using because the 1.10 update kept crashing no matter what settings I had. I am averaging about 2-3 crashes per photomanipulation session - both with hardware acceleration on and off. I am not sure where to find the Dump files after a crash otherwise I'd post them. Is anyone else having this issue? Designer does not seem to have this issue but Photo has been for a while now and it is starting to get old at this point. Windows 10 Nvidia SUPER RTX 2070
  3. So I have started having many crashes since updating to 1.10. Usually when I try to use FX or the Mesh/Perspective tools though sometimes it happened when I was simply resizing things. All drivers are up to date. I tried with GPU acceleration off, then on and neither altered the problem. So I downgraded back to the previous version Did lose about 30 minutes of work though
  4. This did not happen before, but now every time I finish drawing a line (black) with the Vector Pen Tool and my Tablet, I go to fill the new shape (Red). When I click the Vector Pen Tool, the stroke is now RED instead of black, forcing me to constantly switch back to black. This is the first time I've seen the color change based off of whatever color I used to fill a shape. Does anyone know how to keep the black as default and stop changing?
  5. I am using a wacom tablet to draw in Affinity Designer and any time I use the VECTOR BRUSH TOOL and select a Brush Texture (like pencil or acrylic), the Vector Brush Tool is forever stuck on Textures. I cannot get it to return to the default Vector lines without closing the program and re-opening it and it's becoming rather irritating. Can we get this fixed down the line?
  6. Ok, I'm not the only one who is having this issue. Yeah - I clicked on textured brush while using the Vector Brush tool and now I cannot remove the brush and go back to a solid stroke. >.< This is really annoying
  7. Do I have to do this for every line? And also - really quickly. I am trying to draw lines using brushes. I select the brush for Hair, make a line with pen tool. But then it just makes the same settings of line as my last image. I have to keep clicking on the Brush Hair icon to revert it. Any idea why this is? Do I always have to keep clicking on the appropriate brush to get the line to change to it? Or can i select it then start using the pen tool to make several lines?
  8. Okay, so in Affinity Designer, let's say i click on an object I created. I goto STROKES -> PRESSURE then adjust the pressure to whatever look I want. I finish, hit Escape, goto the Pen tool to make the next lines. The problem is, the Brush is still on the STROKE/PRESSURE of the previous line. I have to now goto STROKES -> PRESSURE -> RESET to get it back to normal. This also happens when I remove a Stroke. I click the object, goto STROKE, his the \ to remove the stroke, then fill the color. But now when I goto PEN to make a new line, the stroke is still turned off and I have to reactivate it. How do I make it so every new line has the pen revert back to it's default state? Or have I been approaching my lines all wrong when it comes to hiding strokes and adjusting pressure?
  9. I am so excited to test out the Designer Grids! Them not scaling to the art board was a huge bump in learning Isometric work.
  10. So I've been having some serious issues with Grid management on the windows version of Photo. It doesn't ever line up properly with the size of the canvas which is quite an irritation. This is how it looks with Auto Grid turned on. See how the right side is cut off? What is causing this?
  11. So, I am learning vectoring, coloring, etc with Affinity Designer and I am reading some tutorials on different projects I want to try. One such tutorial has steps to blend 2 colors together then extract the shades from the blend to create a palette. The steps for Illustrator are listed in the attachment and I am wondering if Design has the same ability?
  12. So I have a gamer mouse that has 2 side buttons (buttons 4 and 5) and i am wanting to bind one of those buttons to the Toggle Fix Context (default X) but when I try to click those buttons while in the shortcut menu, it doesn't record the mouse click. What would i need to do to get this to toggle with the side mouse buttons?
  13. My dad bought me Affinity Designer and I have the product key printed out. How do I go about downloading it to activate? I cannot find a download section that isn't to also purchase it.
