  1. I'm using Photo, OS: Ventura on MB Pro 14" M1 Can you reproduce it? Yes, Consistently reproduces in the same document. I can share the document, but not on the open forum. Description of the problem: - I moved a mask from one layer up through several other layers. Halfway through, Photo crashes. Cutting the mask and copying to the target layer does work. To reproduce: - Have several raster layers (large, photos) - Create a mask on a bottom layer - Move the mask up the layer stack - crash See attached video and crash report. There's no unusual hardware/software running. crash-dragging.mov crashreport.txt
  2. 1. Create New doc 2. Draw something on new layer, select it and create Mask 3. Make another layer and draw something 4. Drag mask from 1st layer to 2nd 5. Crash Note: If first release mask from menu or drag it to release, and than drag to 2nd layer — it work fine macOS 13.4.1 / ARM-64 / Affinity Photo 2 Beta 2.2.0 (1903)
  3. There are two ways to create child layers in Affinity Photo, but I couldn't find anything about this point in the online help. I therefore do not know the official vocabulary (if it exists) to distinguish the two types from each other and this makes uneasy to discuss it. So I begin with explaining how to get these two types. For this I start from an image with 3 ordinary layers, a background, a delimited pixel layer which will become the parent layer and a top layer which will become the child layer. Then : (1) The 1st type children are created by right-clicking on the upper layer and choosing "Mask to below". If this layer is an adjustment or a filter, you can also create this type of child directly with the buttons of the layer palette or with the items of the Layer menu (2) The 2nd type children are created by selecting the upper layer and then calling the menu "Arrange > Move inside" You can also transform the top layer into one or the other kind of children with the appropriate click and drag. You can also transform a 1st type child into a 2nd type with the click and drag shown below, starting from a folded parent-child group and moving the child layer thumbnail horizontally to the right This works fine on my Windows laptop, but this always makes Affinity Photo to crash on my Mac, regardless of the child layer (adjustment, filter, pixel layer). I tried in Preferences > Performance to cancel all hardware acceleration (see below screenshot), but this still crashes. I am working with a Mac Pro (under BigSur OS) with a AMD FirePro D500 3 Go video card
