  1. Sadly. If anyone would for some reason look up my previous posts, it would quickly become obvious that i've had issue after issue with Affinity in the past. I'm not a hobbyist and need tools that i can rely on. Why i thought i could leave the Adobe ecosystem idk, but in hindsight, it was a bad decision. I'm back on Photoshop already, and who knows if i won't be needing Illustrator in the foreseeable future...
  2. Yeah, that explains why my whole workflow falls apart right now. I'm on a deadline, and can't export the vectors i need. Oh well, since Designer doesn't have a Trace Bitmap function, i'll have to vectorize with Inkscape again and reimport into Designer/Publisher...
  3. Oh, and another question, if you don't mind: Do vector brushes not export as vector shapes when i export a PDF for printing?
  4. I'm afraid you're right. How to solve my following problem then? Maybe you'll have an idea for a workaround. I have to print this logo (that i did w- vector brushes) on a huge banner. The problem is that the dimensions are so big that the strokes get too thin (we know that Designer sadly doesn't scale up the brushes when you scale up the layer...) I tried to export to all possible file formats, but can't get to export shapes - it always rasterizes. Could you suggest an idea how to get the logo this big, without having to rasterize?
  5. Hey guys. I've made a logo with vector brush strokes, and i need to make shapes out of the strokes. I select the curve layers that house the strokes, then apply "Expand stroke" from the menu. And... nothing happens - the layer(s) get(s) deselected, and i still have strokes. What am i missing?
  6. Thanks. Well, usually forum etiquette recommends to avoid spam, so i use existing topics...
  7. BUG 1: After opening 2 images simultaneously i want to switch back to the other one with CTRL+SHIFT+TAB. Nothing is happening. I have to press the same key combo a second time to get the application to react to my input. ---------------------------------------------------- BUG 2: After opening 10-20 images simultaneously, the last opened image is shown (like expected). Then i hit CTRL+TAB to switch to the next tab (being the last, it should wrap to the first tab automatically). But it switches to the 4th or 5th tab from the left. I get the feeling the tab switching is unpredictable. --------------------------------------------------- Can you guys reproduce these issues?
  8. Chris, unfortunately there is no choice to disable parallel processing globally (for opening multiple files). Or is it? And if you advise to disable it when batch processing, why not make it the default? We all know that Affinity still doesn't remember tool and filter settings (i hope this gets adressed in v2.0 ), so it's easy to forget to untick it and freeze the application.
  9. I attached the most recent one (from yesterday when i did the test), i hope it helps. My thoughts about this issue: I have sometimes freezes when i batch process with "parallel processing" enabled. I learned that i need to disable it (i wish Photo would remember my selection!), and the reason is simple: i use a normal hard disk for my files. With parallel processing the app tries to access multiple files at the same time and everything actually gets slower. Parallel processing of files is meant for SSDs, not for HDDs. I suspect this as a culprit for the crashes when opening and closing many files. IMO parallel processing should be an option that the user can disable. That could probably take care of another issue - not keeping the order of the files when opening multiple ones: But this is probably a topic for the request forums. edb019fc-e018-4509-befc-bcba900a1c84.dmp
  10. OK, i did the test. I did 4 batches of ~40 images (1300px wide, with 2-4 adjustment layers each). I simulated my usual workflow, but without any editing (if i edit, i think the issue happens sooner). 1- selecting images in explorer 2- "open" from context menu, waiting for loading and until CPU goes down from 100% 3- going through all images and resetting zoom to 100% because images are shown to fit by default (very bad behavior! just imagine editing icons or similar small stuff!) 4- closing everything down one by one (because there is no "close all" functionality in aPhoto, unfortunately) 5- back to step 1 for the next batch The memory utilization in Task Manager never got above 35-40%. BUT, on the 4th batch the program crashed (closed silently) while loading the images. And to answer your question: Yes, if i close and reopen the program regularly i can prevent those crashes. But that's not a workaround i can accept as someone who uses this software professionally.
  11. Sorry, i saw your reply just today. I'll try out your suggestion and report the results.
  12. Thanks for getting back with the official info. I did post already in the bug section. When the program crashed multiple times, a crashpad_handler.exe connected to the internet - i hope it transmitted some relevant data to you about the crashes.
  13. I see what i can do. No promises. I'm on the verge of giving up on Affinity, with all the problems i had recently and the time i lost.
