  1. Past 3 days encountering random crashes. Working on a simple node edit AD crashed, returning to the iPad’s Home Screen. Returning to the project it would randomly crash regardless of the attempted operation. Crash has been occurring after 3-8 mins of use. It consistently happens when attempting to return to my gallery from any project. I updated to iOS 14 2 days ago with the same results. App Store auto updates turned ‘on’. Help!
  2. TL;DR: Is there a way to add a background image to a document using a picture frame while avoiding the picture immediately becoming detached from the master? I ran into an issue where detaching an element on a master page resulted in the same element being detached when the styles are applied. It's a bit tricky to explain, but it basically boils down to problems with child masters carrying over too much information. Step 1: Created a master, on which I based all of my subsequent masters (Level 1). At some point I tested adding a background here and changed my mind. Only partially relevant to this conversation, but it does have some impact. Step 2: Created a child template by applying that master to another template. I have three templates created this way, each with a different background texture. (Level 2) Step 3: Applied Level 2 masters to child masters for slight variations among pages that share a textured background. (Level 3) Step 4: Created a few pages based on Level 3 masters. I didn't realize this until later, but adding a photo to a picture frame detaches the element from the master, and this change carries over across subsequent masters/pages. I see no way to fix this without entirely recreating the document, unless it is possible to "reattach" an element that was detached from the master. In the attached images, you can see that my change at Level 2 doesn't carry into the Level 3 master or the page based on the master. In other words, once a frame becomes detached from the master, it also becomes detached on child masters and pages.
  3. I copied and pasted layers of vector art from an .ai file into my Designer document. When I resized the document to fit on my workspace, distortions in the design were introduced at particular points in the scaling process. Attached images: The first shows the original (correct) drawing. The second remains correct. The distortions occur around the "antennae" of the stylized insect in the 3rd and subsequent images, and appear as spike-like protrusions and odd scaling of the other elements of the drawing. I would hate to have to re-create this from scratch in Designer. How can I scale these vectors without creating distortions? Another question: I originally tried to work on my .ai file in Designer without copying and pasting the layers into a new document. When I tried to anchor the layers and resize the document, the artwork layers disappeared. The list of layers still showed them as existing, and supposedly visible, but neither the art nor its bounding boxes could be seen in the workspace, even when zoomed out. I have no clue why I am not able to resize the document without losing access to the layers.
  4. Screenshot file names provide description to go with the description below. TIFF file exported from Capture One has a very strong moire pattern in the couch fabric that the subjects are sitting on. The moire is not apparent when editing in Capture One, but it is evident in the TIFF file opened by 2 of 3 downstream programs. See the steps below. 2 of 4 (including Affinity Photo) if you include opening the tiff file in CO20. I am not sure where the issue is since it doesn't appear in XnViewClassic, nor in Capture One if you open the TIFF file in C20. Details and screenshots included. I develop a RAW file in Capture One 20 When satisfied I process it, export to tiff There is NO moire pattern in the Capture One application I open the tiff file in Affinity Photo and there is a brutal moire pattern in the couch I open the tiff file in Windows Photo Viewer and there is a brutal moire pattern in the couch I open the tiff file in XnViewClassic and there is no moire pattern in the couch I open the tiff file in Capture One 20 and there is no moire pattern in the couch Affinity Photo 1.8.5.703 Capture One Details: Build: 13.1.3.13 (78b6a17) System Details: OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Version 10.0.19041 Build 19041 OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation System Type x64-based PC Processor AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core Processor, 3600 Mhz, 6 Core(s), 12 Logical BIOS Version/Date American Megatrends Inc. 3.50, 2019-11-07 BaseBoard Product B450 TOMAHAWK MAX (MS-7C02) Platform Role Desktop Time Zone Pacific Daylight Time Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 32.0 GB Total Physical Memory 32.0 GB Available Physical Memory 22.4 GB Page File Space 4.75 GB [Display] Name NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Adapter RAM (1,048,576) bytes Driver NV_DISPSI.INF_AMD64_47A7EA3F1B25EDD7 <<Monitor>> Benq SW271 _8507812_-_2020-Oct-11_-_Dev_2020_10_19_10-53-24.tif _8507812_-_2020-Oct-11_-_Dev_2020_10_19_10-53-24.tif
  5. “Fill tool” is doing multiple fill actions by just scrolling/browsing the “Fill Type” carousel. It’s creating multiple history states by just scrolling the “Fill Type” option and sometimes causing a slow down and even a crash! I’ve attached a video demonstrating the bug, notice the “history studio”. Restarting the app didn’t help! Affinity Photo v1.8.6 iPadOS v14.0.1 (iPad Pro 11 inch 2nd gen) IMG_0903.MP4
  6. Hi All, Sorry, I'm not 100% sure how to properly word this, as I've not nailed down exactly what causes this to occur, but I've had a persistent albeit random issue trying to paint masks. Eventually, after doing a fair mount of painting/switching back and forth between black/white using the keyboard shortcut something happens and AP gets 'stuck'. Once the issue starts, white and black do the same thing and resetting the colors does not fix the issue. If they are stuck in 'hide mode' both colors hide and vice versa. I can save and restart, but the issue persists. However, sometimes, if I manually set the color to white/black the problem goes away, but that is not a guaranteed fix. I did just find that if I set both colors to nothing (red line though the circle) then manually change the slider for each color, one to white and one to black, it seemed to fix the issue. I'm fairly sure I've done that before and it did not fix the issue, but it's late and my memory is slipping. Hopefully someone else can replicate the issue, or tell me why it's happening, and how to never let it happen again System: Window 10 Pro: Version 2004, Build 19041.508 Affinity Photo: 1.8.5.703

  8. I just purchased and downloaded Affinity Designer last night. I attempted to open a .ai file with it, and was met with an error regarding permissions. I also tried to save an Affinity project (.afdesigner), which was met with a permissions error as well. The error reads: I am only able to read/save files in my newly created Affinity Designer iCloud storage, which is not the workflow I will be adopting. Before anyone flags this as a duplicate or writes this off, know that I have: Tried saving to/reading from multiple directories within my home directory, not limited to my Documents folder. (eg: ` ~/`, `~/Pictures`, `~/Downloads`) Used CleanMyMac3 to repair my disk permissions (multiple times) Manually reset permissions on my home folder recursively to all subdirectories and files (Right click > get info > Permissions & Sharing) Manually reset permissions on my home folder via terminal Ran First Aid via Disk Utility Restarted my computer (between each step) Cleared Affinity Designer's data by holding down Ctrl while booting Uninstalled and re-installed Affinity Designer I've read that this is related to Apple's sandboxing. Regardless, it seems insane that the program can't interface with my hard drive. My email client, writing apps, and video games downloaded from the app store can, without any issues ever. Why can't Affinity? Also, if this is an App Store issue that is reoccuring, why not make a standalone version... I'd prefer that anyway.... Double bummer because I was so thrilled to be replacing Illustrator with an allegedly superior project at the cost of only $50. Hoping someone can help me.
  9. When expanding the stroke of my drawing, one of the corners break. I've attached images. The first image is before the stroke is expanded, the second one is after. Why is this happening?
  10. Hello there, I was trying to enjoy using the Frankentoon Illustration brushes (on Windows Designer) but every time I switched back and forth between eraser and one of the more complex brushes I had to reselect and therefore reset brush size and changes I've made to the brush. After some testing I figured out the texture option is causing this problem because the textures won't get applied after switching back to the brush tool. However if I press "Invert" twice in the texture brush settings the brush works as intended again, but that just kills my workflow so is there any fix for this? I couldn't find anything about it after skimming the forum. Explanation of the pictures: 1.: stroke with brush; 2.: switch to eraser and erase a bit; 3.: switch back to brush and do another stroke After some more testing I found that this issue only occurs in brushes with more than one Texture applied, also non- Frankentoon brushes are affected too (tried with "Watercolours" defaults). I'm running the latest stable designer build on a AMD Ryzen 4700u, 16GB RAM Kind regards, RK
  11. I am having issues with paragraph styles. I expected them to work like inDesign or Word -- to click on text and apply the style, or update the style. Click on another button to erase formatting. When I place my insertion point at the beginning of the first line of a paragraph in body style, and enter delete, I expect the line to move up and close the gap from the paragraph above. But no, it acts like I hit return, and body style changes to no style. Similarly when I delete a line of bullied or numbered points I am unable to close the gap by hitting delete. I have to convert to Body, then convert again to the list. When I copy bullet points from one section and add them to another paragraph, then change the bullet points to Body, the space between paragraphs is not maintained, and it's a real hassle to get the 6pt space to work that is part of Body style. When I copy text from a Quarkxpress 2018 generated PDF, the text has huge leading, and does not conform to the style I select in body, or bulleted list. It has taken 8 hours to format a doc that should have taken 1 hour.
  12. Hello Affinity Team, have discovered a curiosity in the filter (Filters > Noise > Deinterlace > Even Rows & Odd Rows)! As you can see at the beginning of the (Video) example, the deinterlace filter is executed correctly up and down. But as soon as I rotate the image by 90 degrees, the effect of the filter is also rotated by 90 degrees and instead of horizontally, it is executed vertically! For me it looks like a bug!

  13. The "Window Zoom" option is not working in Affinity Publisher Beta 1.9.0.742 on macOS Big Sur 11.0 Beta (20A5384c) Used to be able to Alt + click green dot in the top left corner of application window to zoom the window to screen size (not Fullscreen), currently this action goes into Fullscreen; Menubar > Window > Zoom is working
  14. I used the pen tool on this program way back when (probably late 2017) and had no problem tracing my sketches into vector art. Now when I alt click a node (in 1.7) it turns the entire line straight instead of just removing one handle. Is this supposed to happen? Because right now the tool is virtually unusable.
  15. Hey there, I've just downloaded the new version of Affinity Publisher. So it would be version 1.7.1. I did not have access to beta prior. This is my first experience with the software. Since I opened it up, I've been having crash issues. Can barely get through adding images to one page and the spinning/not responding starts. Sometimes if I wait a while it works it's way out of it and sometimes not. I've been working for over an hour and have only gotten through page 3 of my document. I've been searching for solutions. Here's what I've tried so far. 1. Downloaded High-Logic and uninstalled a few hundred fonts that I wasn't using. 2. Checked the appdata folder for crash reports. Those folders are all empty 3. Held down the CTRL key when I started up Publisher and checked all boxes/ set it all back to defaults. The issue persists. As I've been typing this message, Publisher finally came out of it's spin, but I'm not going to get very far at this pace. Also, for some possibly further useful information, I had this problem sporadically with Designer and since that latest update, all those issues seem to have disappeared. I'm not sure if this is something going on with my PC or ? But I did see a forum thread somewhere that suggested this is not normal for Publisher and it should not be running this way. Any ideas or treasure trails you all can send me down to try and get this handled would be most appreciated. I was so excited to use this program and cut my time in half or more, but so far it's taking me more than twice as long to get anything done. Help?
  16. I've noticed a bug when merging layers down while they are part of a clipping mask. When you have more than one clipping layer on an object and you merge it down to the layer below it, it flattens the entire mask stack (including the parent layer) instead of just merging the two clipped layers. A bit tricky to articulate, but I've added an attachment here to try and visually explain what I mean.
  17. Guides, margins, and bleeds cannot be set and have display errors on the iPad. They cannot be set when you are using art boards (they jump back to 0), and when you have multiple art boards, the margin shows up in the wrong place. I noticed margin display error it when opening a document I’d created on my Mac - they are right on the Mac, but display wrong on the iPad. I’m using 11” iPad Pro, affinity designer 1.8.4 linking the original thread from the pre-p 1.8 beta archive as these have been issues since 1.7: plus here’s a video of the margin display error RPReplay_Final1598999987.mp4
  18. Observed There is a bug when try to alter the brush width of the Paint Brush Tool by using Ctrl + ⌥ + drag it shows the UI for brush tool change width, but it does not modify the width neither the hardness. It only works width Pixel Brush and Paint Mixer Brush tools. Reproduces with new document Yes Affinity photo 1.7.3 ipad OS X 13.3
  19. Create an asset that included two shape elements, 3 png, and 6 text elements. It worked fine for awhile, but I think after this most recent update they are behaving very oddly and completely breaking. Review the video and you will see it seems to occur after copying. Something not captured in the video is that it seems to permanently break the original asset in the system as well. The individual elements are flying all over the page.

  20. As shown in the video, I am very confused as to why the text isn't wrapping properly when I 'edit detached' the height of an object that is created on the master page. Screen_Recording_2020-08-15_at_4_34.07_PM.mov
  21. OS: Windows 10 ver. 2004, build 19041.338 Affected product: Affinity Designer 1.8.4.693 (non Microsoft store version) Hardware: Microsoft Surface Book 1st Gen (i5 6300u, 8gb ram, 256gb ssd) Microsoft Surface Pen (battery level 61%) Issue: When dragging nodes/lines or when resizing objects in Designer while using pen input the line/object/indicator will glitch and flash rapidly. More info: This issue first appeared for me after upgrading to version 1.8.4.693, it was not present in the earlier version i was using but that version was out of date and i do not know the version number. I believe the build i was using was installed around March this year. This issue does not seem to be present in Affinity Photo, i did not test in Publisher. The issue is only with pen input, both mouse and touch inputs seem unaffected at this time. General drawing and other activities are unaffected by the glitching. This happens on both new and current projects. The issue is present in all performance modes for the laptop, from power save to full performance mode while plugged in. This issue still occurs when a different Surface pen is used. As a troubleshooting step, all user settings were reset to default by holding CTRL on startup, issue still present. Here is a video of the issue, i apologize for the quality and terrible audio. Please mute or turn down before viewing.
  22. As the titles says. Repro is to switch on the "Touch for gestures only" setting in Preferences > Tools, then open a file and try the tools. Selection, adjustments, node tools, typing, etc. do not work unless touch is enabled. The cursor responds but the document within Designer does not. It's understandable if the cursor relies on touch and thus is unusable when this setting is turned on.
  23. Hi, I'm new with Affinity Designer, with the Ipad too. I'm trying to duplicate a brush but when I press the button duplicate after pushing the name of the original brush, nothing happens, there is not a copy of the brush, so I don't know how to continue. Is this a bug? I closed and reopened the Ipad just in case something changes but not... Thanks a lot if you have an answer.
  24. Hi, I'm using Publisher 1.8.3 on the Mac. I'm currently constructing an index for a document. I've added an index entry for "Faces" and then used the right-click 'find in document...' to locate other entries I want to tag. However, it is not finding all the examples of that word. In particular I can see that it isn't finding examples with a colon immediately next to it. The "Find: " in the below image wasn't picked up by it, for instance. There is some discussion on this forum post here and Walt Ferral has found the same problem on Windows version Thanks
  25. Trying to connect two nodes is very buggy. Make two simple separate lines with the brush or pencil tool. Select the node tool then select one node from each line. Start with the two that are closest to each other. Click the "join curves" on the toolbar and MAYBE they will join to each other. It gets crazy. Let's say that it worked as expected. Now, select one of those nodes and move it closer to the other node on the other line. Now select the same two nodes again, and try to join them again. Here's is what is possible to happen now. The two selected nodes WILL NOT join. The to unselected nodes MIGHT join. Or, the Node you have selected, and the one that it's closest to, though not selected, MIGHT join. And as you move the node around, any and all of those possibilities may happen. It makes no difference what you have selected. Selection, is only a factor when the two nodes are close together. When the two selected nodes are farther a part, all of those other crazy possibilities come into play. Compare that, to how DrawPlus used to join curves. While still holding the brush tool, you could freely select two nodes, any two nodes from either end, and drag one onto the other and they snapped and joined and became one!
