I was doing a simple illustration, though using 50+ layers and was spendig about 2 hrs when the software flipped out as soon as I resized my single art board. I have recorded a video of this happening which I will attach to this topic.
I'm not entirely sure of the steps to reproduce this bug. What I can remember is this:
- This file is a "save as" from a previous file.
- I also created a new a4 horizontal document in which I drew a component
- I copy/pasted this new vector component onto my "saved as" file and started reworking all existing elements.
- A lot of tiny curves were grouped and 'nested' within an existing object (using the rightmost button in the toolbar)
- Some objects were cropped using the vector crop tool.
- Everything in the file is basically vectors. No pixels.
- After a while I wanted to resize the art board. Upon sliding the corner point outwards, the software immediately threw all of my objects around. (see video attached)
* layers were retained in their z-index (if I can call it that)
* everything was thrown around with each mouse movement. Even far outside the artboard
* Most objects were resized
-> At this point I made a screen recording.
After the recording, I tried "save as", saved the "damaged file" hoping it was just a visual glitch. I kept the software open, clicked on the tab of the other file I had open (the object I created on a blank canvas) and tried resizing that artboard: Everything was fine in that other file. Which leads me to believe the software had an issue with that single file causing something to flip out.
After restarting the software, I opened up the damaged file. It was saved without error and I could open it fine. But it has all objects messed up (so, like I saved it) so I had to start over.
- Win10 x64 intel i7 8700K / nvidia gtx 980ti / 32 GB RAM
- Affinity designer for Windows, latest version
- No plugins, I use the software exclusively. I do have the included UI kit and brushes imported, as well as Frankentoon Nomad pack.
- Other apps running at the time were Google Chrome (about 6 tabs open), Steam, Google Backup and Sync
- No error messages were given, no real crash occurred. CPU did not spike and memory usage seemed ok (though I have quite some memory)
