    Random crashes in both Photo and Designer

    Hi @GabrielM So far so good. Been working with them all afternoon/evening and not a single crash. I'll see how it goes tomorrow but it's certainly looking promising. Many thanks.

    Random crashes in both Photo and Designer

    Hi @GabrielM unfortunately that hasn't solved it. Switched to Safari to look at an email and Photo crashed in the background. That's the strange thing, both apps seem to crash whilst they are in the background, not while I'm working in them.

    Random crashes in both Photo and Designer

    It's a Mac mini, late 2014, but like say it's never had any issues till I changed to the SSD. I've been working on a Designer image that's nearly 200mb with no issues whatsoever on the old drive. Anyway for the 'official folk' I'll post the first part, if more's needed let me know.

    I only wondered if it might be APFS as it's the only thing I can think of that's changed. I saved the last crash report. How much of the crash report should I post as it seems pretty lengthy?
  8. Both Apps have started crashing, usually when they are in the background, on a regular basis. It doesn't matter if it's a 250mb designer file or a 45kb photo file, there doesn't seem to be any real pattern. The only thing that's changed recently is I bought an SSD drive and did a clean install of Mojave. I'm also running the new imaginatively named APFS Apple File System on the drive. Until now I've never had either app crash so does anyone know if the Affinity suite is possibly not working well with APFS?
  9. Worked perfectly Aammppaa. Thanks for your help. Very much appreciated.
  10. Hi Stokerg, thanks for the quick reply. I'd rather not upload the original file as it's over 100mb in size and a work in progress. But I have included an example file to show my issue and a small section of my image to show my issue within the Designer Image. It's all done with vectors. There are no pixel/raster items within if that makes any difference. In the example file I've put a clean square mask over a blurred circle. Masking Issue Example.afdesign I'm trying to get the blur inside but with clean edging. As you can see in the section of my image a blur is cast from the right side of the tree where I've created shadowing. I could do a reverse image with sky detail in, to mask the shadowing, but that then affects the cloud layers I've drawn. (They were partially under the tree until I ran into this issue and would like to move them back)
  11. Hi, I'm in the process of doing my first piece of work in Affinity Designer. I'm trying to mask a layer that has a gaussian blur effect but the blur continues outside the masking area. Is there any way around this or am I doing something wrong? I dragged the masking template onto the layer so it appears as a mask in the layers panel but no joy. Any help would be much appreciated.
