  1. Hi Sean, after deinstalling Designer and manually removing Designer folders in the program files, program data, \AppData\Roaming\Affinity and emptying the temp folder in \appdata\local and reinstalling Designer 1.7.2, Designer seems to work normal again. I can move, scale etc. without a problem. On second thought - it might be because by default the 'Snap to Object Geometry' is turned off?
  2. Affinity Designer 1.7.2 (and 1.7.1) is lagging and/or crashing/not responding when I'm scaling/moving/rotating a complex vector image which is placed in a masked layer. If the object is placed as a normal layer I can scale/move/rotate it without a hitch. it can be reproduced (at least on my laptop). Tried the same thing with version 1.6.5 - had no problems. - Working with Version 1.7.2; - Windows 10; - 16 GB RAM; - Intel i7-6600U CPU @ 2.60GHz 2.81 GHz
  3. But here's a video before a complete reinstall 20190821_174721.mp4
  4. I've solved it by deinstalling Designer 1.7.2. Deleted the Affinity Designer directory in the program files, program data and in appdata\roaming directory. Installed 1.7.2 again - now it's working properly.
  5. ok, no problems. So... the problem is on my laptop (which is a bit strange - a top of the line laptop. And my old i3 laptop has no problems).
  6. Ah crap, yes. The .afdesign file is indeed without the line work and shouldn't have been uploaded. Interesting - I've just opened the pdf file on another laptop and have no issues as well (with 1.7.2). Affinity Photo and Publisher are still on version 1.7.1. Going to update these as well to see if this will have effect.
  7. - go to https://store.serif.com/en-gb/update/windows/designer/1/ to download the version you last worked on. Remember: The files you've worked on with 1.7.2 won't work in older versions!; - right click on the Windows start menu button (left bottom); - go to "Programs and Features"; - select Affinity Designer and click on the button "Uninstall"; - install the version you've downloaded in step 1. I noticed version 1.6.5 works best. After installing the older version you need to setup all the imported, customized brushes/attributes etc.
  8. The pdf file is an export of the original .afdesign file. Designer 1.7.2 crashes as well. But when I open the pdf file in Designer 1.6.5 I can edit everything very smoothly. untitled.afdesign untitled.pdf
  9. It would be great to be able to make halftone color separations in Affinity Photo (or Designer, for that matter) for screenprinting. I just don't seem to be able to do it with A.P. :-(
