  1. I have no idea... my computers not great. I'm more artsy than techy, though I get by! But I was starting to panic when you started talking graphics drivers etc Just had a look at my settings and I think it's Intel(R) HD Graphics 620 if that means anything?
  2. I THINK it’s fixed now. I uninstalled and reinstalled it and so far I’ve been able to open a new document. I haven’t had a chance to test it much though, but fingers crossed! Thanks for all your responses!
  3. I really don't understand how it can be my graphics driver. I'm not overly hi-tech but everything else works fine, it's only when trying to open a new document or go to document settings and only since installing the new update...
  4. Do you mean like this: C:\Program Files\Affinity\Affinity Designer ?? No accent characters there...
  5. I've updated to the latest Designer upon a pop up request to do so. If I click new document from the opening screen, if I close the opening screen and say file new document, or if I go to document setup in an existing document, the whole system freezes and crashes. No error code appears, it just freezes and I can't click anything. I have to open the task manager and shut it down. Please help!
  6. It also happens if I click to go to document setup... In order to create a new document, I opened an existing one, deleted the layers and then tried to go to document setup to change the size, but this has led to freeze/crashing as well. Really frustrating!!!
  7. I'm using Windows. It works fine if I open an existing file, but I can't start a new one!
  8. After doing the new update, I can't seem to open a new document with out the program freezing and crashing. Whether hitting 'new doc' on the opening screen or through File/New Doc it just stops working and I can't click on anything else. No error code or anything either. I have to force it to close. Anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it? Thanks
  9. Sorry, I'm self taught so not too hot on terminology and often miss the most basic ideas! What do you mean by clipping the design to a rectangle? How do I do that?
  10. Thanks Alfred, That's what I'm doing now, duplicating with the handy power duplicate I found when searching for the offset thing, but what I believe the offset does that the power duplicate doesn't is split the selected in to pieces so there isn't loads of mess left hiding on the side. I also think it's more mathematically accurate somehow?
  11. Hi, I want to make a repeating pattern and saw a Photoshop tutorial ( https://binged.it/2tZ6SDb ) where they used an offset function to do this. I've tried searching for something similar in Affinity Designer but cannot seem to find an equivalent? Is there something I've missed? istring
  12. I am also looking for a "distribute evenly" option, which in help is said is located under Align, but there doesn't seem to be anything there. Snapping is all well and good if you have a few items to move, but if you have numerous objects that you want to spread out, being able to place the first and last object in place and then select all and distribute evenly between would be extremely handy!!! Am I just not seeing it there? Please help!
