    Layer select/hide problem

    Chris B.. I managed to upload a video 75mb of the issue (Dropbox link) then tried several time to upload the a copy of the file 64mb from my Dropbox folder but seems to stall at either 46% or 55% then get an error message is there another way I can get the file to you?

    Layer select/hide problem

    I’ll look throug my files, find a smaller one that demonstrates this trait.. I turn layers on/off a lot to compare changes so it’s a real pain when this random thing starts happening..

    Layer select/hide problem

    I don’t know how I could have these inadvertently grouped - see this as an example..sometimes several layers are switched off some may be above or below the visible list, making it very hard to keep track of what I’m doing.

    Layer select/hide problem

    Has anyone experienced hiding one layer and finding that several other random layers get hidden at the same time? I am making sure that the layer I want hidden is the only one selected. I’ve also tried deselecting all objects before hiding a layer, but weirdly other layers hide themselves the moment I uncheck the visibility box.. (maybe it’s a symptom of the time I spend on the image..and that the next symptom will be unable to save..lets see)

    Brush Delay on 12.9 iPad Pro (1st Gen)

    Hi I’ve been experiencing seriously delayed brush response on a piece of work and I’m not drawing tiny circles just a stroke across the canvas. Admittedly I’m using a large canvas (2mtrx1mtr 70ppi). I did notice that I got a much smoother line if I used my Finger to draw instead of my Apple Pencil, but the response time was unacceptable, so I tried resizing the document with no improvement. I also made a copy of the document and deleted all the layers and saved it. Reopened this document still at the original size and 70ppi resolution and tried the same basic airbrush again - still no good. I shut the whole program down the reopened affinity photo and the test document and tried the airbrush again - Improvement! So now I open the original document that I’ve been struggling with and this seems to have an acceptably improve response.. I guess there may be some correlation between the length of time Affinity Photo is open and used and the buggy behaviour of the brushes.. I did not try deleting the history during this investigation and intend to try that next time I encounter the problem.

    Crashing Constantly

    Hi, I’ve been experiencing crashing on files that I’ve been working on for a while.. I’ve just tried deleting the history on one of these files and now it seems stable again. Maybe you should give it a try?

    Crash on savefile

    After hours of work and successfully saving at intervals, the file refuses to save further refinements. Affinity crashes during the save, and on restart, the file thumbnail looks like changes have been made but when the file is opened all changers that reflect the thumbnail are lost. I have tried duplicating the file and deleting layers but these changes won’t save either. This is not the first time it’s happened and seems to occur after a large investment of time and complications to the image. I have found that I can continue work by exporting as PSD then opening this file but even this will eventually corrupt after saving as a native Affinity file format. sorry strange spell corrections on last post

  12. Hello I'm a new user trying to learn as I go. I have produced a complex and multi layered document and wish to get it printed. Exporting as PDF offers option to include bleed. But nothing happens when selected (other print marks will appear when that option is selected). I learn from reading, that bleed should be set when creating the document but there is nothing obvious to select at that stage and anyhow I want to fix the document I have invested my time into already. PLEASE CAN ANYONE HELP?
