  1. Ever since the latest update I've been experiencing a notable increase in strange, brief, intermittent glitches on my iMac monitor when quitting Affinity apps. I don't experience it much when working in the apps (sometimes when merging layers), but it's definitely most notable a few seconds after I quit the apps. It seems somehow worsened when I have a browser window open (Google Chrome, Safari, or Brave). I've also experienced some screen flickers in-app when developing RAW images in Photo, especially any format other than DNG (such as the Nikon NEF format), or when working with larger files. I'm running a dual monitor setup (iMac and a graphics drawing tablet as my second monitor), and the latest version of MacOS (Mojave Version 10.14.6). It's difficult to explain, but it looks similar to glitches experiencing with failing graphics cards, but they only flash/flicker once and then disappear until I quit the apps again, where a failed graphics card would show a permanent glitched display. I initially thought this was a graphics card issue on my side (I've dealt with that before), but after some research I found that this is a known issue between certain apps and the newer MacOS. Here's an article stating that this is is well an issue that is fairly widespread, and can be caused when running certain apps: https://pdf.wondershare.com/macos-10-14/fix-screen-flickers-on-macos-10-14.html I've tried all the steps mentioned to help eliminate the flickering (SMC reset, NVRam reset, booted in Safe Mode, and even ran First Aid on my hard drive to try and iron out any possible system bugs). I have no idea what's causing this, but it's a bit worrying. I'm scared that I'm maxing out my graphics card, or somehow putting too much strain on it when quitting the apps or something. I've even set my Display to "GPU (Basic)", the Retina Rendering to "Low Quality", and disabled "Metal Compute Acceleration" in the Affinity preferences, but it doesn't seem to be helping. I've posted in Affinity groups on Facebook and have received confirmation from a few other users/people that they are also experiencing this when using Affinity. I just want to raise awareness of this issue by posting on here, and hopefully push for a possible fix.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Hi, So i tried exporting a illustration into figma, but the layers just don't align, i will share my original view and the export view, can anybody help me out i am running on a time frame here PS. the PNG comes out A-OK Regards -Noobie37-letter.svg the PNG view SVG view
  5. I know there is an archived theme. Confirming that this problem persists in the newest version 1.8.3. Moreover we can observe these damn lines in Xnview picture viewer also, when viewing images, that were edited in Affinity Photo. So this is a real bug or not? I don't get it.
  6. Hello, There seems to be a glitch with the inner glow effect (edit: and with the outline effect). This glitch seems to at least specifically affect shapes with lower opacity. By viewing the 8 snapshots below, you will see that setting even only 0.1 radius to the effect results in changes to the whole shape instead of affecting only its borders. This happens no matter the blend mode, and no matter the intensity (although the effect is more pronounced with higher intensity. (Pictures 1,2,3,4 are in Multiply blend mode ; Pictures 5,6,7,8 are ine Normal blend mode). I am working on a macbook pro. This happened while following the fisherman tutorial in the AD workbook. r
  7. I found an interesting glitch by accident, it makes it possible to put folders into folders putting a folder inside a folder is really easy but geting it out is a bit tricky 1. have a full folder 2. hold a folder so you can move it around and open with another finger the full folder you want to put it in, move the folder from your other finger around and if the other projects in your folder move away from it you can just drop it in. 3. to get the folder out of the folder you need to hold the folder inside the folder again to move it around, you will se there is no "back button in the upper left corner to bypass this you have to open any project while you still hold the folder with one finger now you can go back out of the project and now there is a "back" button on the up left corner so you can go out of the folder while holding the other folder, just move the folder out of the current folder sometimes it works first try but sometimes it takes some more tryes (sorry for my bad English) Please make it to a real feature 4CDB4BF3-9F7F-4AF1-BF95-B1F8689B16C9.MOV
  8. Hi loves! The new update has been giving me some problems... I use fonts a lot & they are all listed out of order & just randomly.. takes forever to find the ones I need. lol Also I cannot upload a new font as well. Just a very glitchy update. I hope this gets fixed soon... I have a project I need to finish. 💜 thank you! - Leslie
  9. So I've been having some serious issues with Grid management on the windows version of Photo. It doesn't ever line up properly with the size of the canvas which is quite an irritation. This is how it looks with Auto Grid turned on. See how the right side is cut off? What is causing this?
  10. Hi, There is a problem with my HSL. It doesn't look like it is supposed to. I can't see all the colours as you can see in the image. HSL is usually showing in a form of circle but I have only one quarter of the circle. Thanks for helping, Lauriane
  11. Hi there. I have just bought the affinity designer and photo. And unfortunately I see that the program is extremely slow, lagging and glitchy. What should I do? I cannot work with this until the performance is so terrible. -.- PC Specs: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (1703) GeForce GTX 745 (With the latest drivers: 06.10.2017, version: 23.21.13.8792) Intel Core i3-6100 3.70 GHz 16 GB RAM Affinity Designer Version 1.5.3.69 For more system informations, take a look to the dx diag file. DxDiag.txt
  12. I've reported this issue to the Twitter team and they have asked me to post this here. Having created an illustration I selected one of the objects to check the size. For some reason I just decided to I click on the X and Y values in the Transform Panel and press 'Enter' and as I did this I noticed that the object moved ever so slightly. The same happens with Height and Width respectively. It's as though the values in the Transform Panel boxes don't match the size of the object on-screen. This happens in new documents too and isn't just on the illustration document. It happens in whatever unit of measurement I have the document set to and can be seen more clearly when zoomed in. Perhaps there's a tolerance between each digit in relation to the preview on-screen? Apple iMac 21.5-inch macOS Catalina 10.15.1 Affinity Designer 1.7.3 Document set to A3 Landscape CMYK with Create Artboard turned on Create a rectangle Click on the rectangle Go to the transform panel and observe the values shown Click on each of the values but don't change them and simply press 'Enter' If it behaves like mine you should be able to see the rectangle change ever so slightly Attached is a quick recording of this happening. After clicking on the values in the Transform Panel boxes, I simply press 'Enter' on the keyboard and the object changes as shown. This doesn't sound like much of a problem but when working on intricate illustrations with lots of detail, the slightest unintended movement or alteration can mess things up. Is this a bug or simply a programmed behaviour that I just need to get used to? Hope that helps! Affinity Designer Glitch.mov
  13. I added a couple of GIFs as an example of what's going on because I'm not entirely sure how to describe it. The original file is also attached to this post. Example 1 - The brush preview seem to be working incorrectly. Note that I am NOT clicking anything, just moving the mouse. The only way to get rid of the visual glitch is to zoom in or out. https://i.imgur.com/bK3SHFl.gif Example 2 - Toggling this effect causes the same or a very similar issue where the image is not updating as it should and requires me to zoom to clear the visual error. https://i.imgur.com/gRqyQUk.gif **System Information** Operating system: Windows-10-10.0.18362 64 Bits Graphics card: GeForce GTX 1080 Ti/PCIe/SSE2 NVIDIA Corporation 4.5.0 NVIDIA 430.86 Memory: 32GB RAM - 2x16GB 2400hz Affinity Photo version: 1.7.1.404 Melchior Toon Test.afphoto
  14. When I use my transform studio the X and Y axis sort of glitch out. Look at the video attached for a better description. Any help would be greatly appreciated FBA47930-A444-471A-BE22-474E0894FF87.MOV
  15. Hi! Created a seed of life design behind my logo art & went to erase the lines coming through... but nothing is disappearing. lol Am I doing something wrong? It’s also not working in my other documents I’m currently working on. But is usually fine before... also updated my iPad Pro the newest one after I found out it wasn’t working.. but didn’t help! Is anyone aware of this? I have projects to finish this week! Thanks so much!
  16. Hi, Starting this topic on request from your reply on my tweet: https://twitter.com/affinitybyserif/status/1097431968562769921 So I have a multiline text that has the "Justified All" property set for text alignment. As you can see in the video, depending on the zoom level of the viewport, the text behaves in a weird manner. As if at some zoom the text is displayed as expected, at some other zoom the first line ignores the Justified All property, and in between there is a glitch that displays half of the text correctly, and half of the text wrong. When exporting, with these dimensions, I got the half/half result. This issue was pretty annoying, and my workaround was to create multiple text layers instead of one multiline. I included the .afphoto document to this thread, as well as the video and screenshot I posted on Twitter. Hope this helps to investigate the issue, as it is very annoying. Best regards, Jordan Enregistrement_de_l’écran_2019-02-16_à_17_30_24.mov Thumbnail-WTF.afphoto
  17. Hi guys, this tutorials shows how you can achieve a glitch effect.
  18. I just made this pixel glitch macro pack and I wanted to share it with you guys. I hope you like it and let me know what you think about it.
  19. Hello everyone , recently i started working on glitch art . A pixel sorter would make my work very easy because sadly you cannot really achieve the pixel sorting effect with the displacement map. It should roughly work like the "Wind" tool in photoshop where it slices and displaces the images in a vertical or horizontal plane To illustrate what I am talking about
  20. I've recently started using the batch feature to speed up my workflow. I had a few recordings saved in the library but the other day I went to use one and poof...they were gone. I couldn't even see the default presets. Thinking that maybe it was a glitch I tried replicating one I'd made (I needed to edit a group of photos). Once I'd completed it I tried to save it to my library....nothing. No popup window no nothing, like the link had been cut. I tried resetting the program but it didn't resolve the issue. I dont know if I deleted the batch folder or something by accident, but regardless it's not working and I need this feature for my business. Can someone please help me??????
  21. Hey Guys! I really want to get involved into the improvements of this app, so I will be posting the bugs or issues I'll find. Here is the glitch screenshots, that makes the image (pixel) go crazy... happened to me twice (the first time I reseted the app and it solved the problem) but it appeared again... 12" Ipad Pro 2017 (iOS 11.3) Thanks!
  22. I'm using Affinity Designer (1.6.0.35) on the latest version of the 12.9" iPad, after about 15 minutes of use I get strange lines and patterns on the screen. This has happened a few times while I'm working on an illustration. If I quit the app and reopen the file it works fine. Has anyone else run into this problem and if so how did you fix it? Regards, Arno
  23. When working with a vector for more than 30-40 minutes, it starts 8CCCA326-D5F0-45C5-881E-D2A4B286FCF2.MP4 8CCCA326-D5F0-45C5-881E-D2A4B286FCF2.MP4 8CCCA326-D5F0-45C5-881E-D2A4B286FCF2.MP4 F70B074A-CB17-442D-A35B-752B7703985C.MOV
  24. After longer period of working I started getting this type of image. Restarting the app resolves the problem. I don't know yet if it will repeat.
  25. Ive had this happen twice already. As I am working in designer, Ill be controlling a node or changing a gradient and the screen will begin to flicker in the worst way. The quintessential "glitch" look of random pixel noise as if the graphics card was fried. I am concerned this will eventually harm my Ipad. There doesnt seem to be a specific action that causes this. Im curious to know if anyone else has encountered this. Im working on the new Ipad 12.9
