  1. Resolved It turns out it appears to be a program cache issue, probably do to the upgrade. Steps that led me to this problem: I was on and had the "Light" setting on (if that possibly has something to do with it). I saw the upgrade option to and upgraded without uninstalling the previous version. I couldn't use the polygon, magnetic or mode options (they simply wouldn't select, and the modes looked disabled) I uninstalled (I believe restarted) and then installed again, but the problem persisted. Steps that resolved the issue: I uninstalled all my Affinity programs Restarted Deleted Affinity directories in the registry Deleted Affinity directors in "App Data" (including the temp setup files) Installed of both Photo & Designer The UI is back to "Dark", but everything works properly, even if I switch it to the "Light" UI. Based on that, I think there was a caching issue from either the registry or in App Data that caused the bug as part of upgrading. But now I'm up and running again like new, with everything working well!
  2. [UPDATE 2]: Resolved. See my post below. It appears to have been a caching issue with the program itself during upgrade. My steps to reproduce and fix it are also there. Cheers. [UPDATE]: Just went to a previous version and have the same issue, but hadn't used the took in quite some time. Am I simply trying to use it in a way it's intentionally not being enabled? On the latest Affinity Photo (v1.6.4.104) on Windows 10 64-bit, the free hand selection tool won't let me select the polygon and magnetic options, and I can't select a mode (add/subtract/intersect) either. This is the case on background, new pixel layers, rasterized layers, etc. There is no interaction. It's as if they are simply unselectable, even from a UI interaction perspective.
