  1. Hi, Have a reproducible hang here for you - Affinity becomes unresponsive forcing a Force Quit when you do this... 1. Save As... 2. In the Finder dialog (List View) right click a file and select 'Rename...' 3. Hit Enter 4. Affinity cries 5. Well, it doesn't actually cry, it just does nothing, and continues doing nothing, whatever you do. Thanks Wayne
  2. First, I tried to save work, but process hung up. Had to reboot iPad to release. Then when I attempted to select that work again, the app hung up again. Restart of iPad is necessary to keep working. If I avoid that file, I can use Photo. Want to know more?
  3. I have have recently updated to 1.6.6 version. I often import 10+ photo, raw format from Sony A7. Affinity is super slow while doing this. It's too slow to even switch between photos, let alone post-process them. My laptop is Core i7, SSD, 16GB of RAM. I would figure that it should be enough memory to handle 10 files. Please advice!
  4. In Affinity Designer, when dragging either the start or end handle of the text path in the attached file, while holding the CTRL key, the application slows down significantly and ultimately becomes unresponsive. TextPathBug.afdesign Edit: I mean these orange handles which define the text's range:
  5. I tried editing photos of all types, especially the ones from iPhone to my DSLR. Editing iPhone pictures is a breeze for the iPad, but however (running on my iPad 10.5 inch), I experience hangs especially in the liquify persona and the gradient tool. It's really buggy for me. I've tried deleting and re downloading the app before.

    Large file - Affinity Photo

    I'm working on a poster, and affinity photo keeps locking up. It works, really slowly, then it hangs in crash mode, then goes back to working, then back to hanging in crash mode... I'm working as a freelancer. So I need this to be... well, totally cranking! https://www.dropbox.com/s/davt09r1olcvki5/Infiniti%20Poster%20April%202017.zip?dl=0
  7. Running Affinity Photo 1.5.1 on macOS Sierra 10.12.3. I like to use the Apple Photos extension Edit in Affinity Photo Photo. Up until now my workflow was to edit in Affinity Photo, save, close, go back to Apple Photos and save again. Lately (and constantly) if I try to save in Affinity Photo I get an error (attatched) saying failed to save document. It is trying to save in ~/Library/Group Containers. After I select OK not he error, Affinity Photo hangs indefinitely until I force quit and I lose all my work. It's pretty consistent now so I sure hope you can solve this one. I'm especially concerned because the Affinity Photo tutorial that's poised to be released this week on ScreenCasts Online shows this exact process (back when it worked).

    Hang when trying to copy text

    Tried to copy text object from one document to another via shortcut. Designer hangs. The blue menu highlight (the one that OS X usually briefly flashes on to indicate which menu the command lives in when using a shortcut) remains active. Here is the call stack that "Analyze Process" in Activity Monitor gave me (or whatever the feature is called in the English OS X, might be "Inspect Process"?). OS X version is 10.9.5. affinity-designer-hang-callstack.txt
  9. I downloaded a picture from Tutorial Images for "Photoshop Restoration & Retouching, 3rd edition" by Katrin Eismann: ch3_grand_canyon_dng_for MAC After unpacking the image, Affinity photo crashes when started from the file's context menu. AP hangs when I try to open the file via AP's File menu. Crashed Thread: 7 Dispatch queue: com.apple.root.utility-qos Exception Type: EXC_BAD_INSTRUCTION (SIGILL) Exception Codes: 0x0000000000000001, 0x0000000000000000 Exception Note: EXC_CORPSE_NOTIFY

    AP not working

    Hi; Something strange happened to APhoto; I'm no longer able to modify any document with it. It opens properly, but no matter what tool I try to select, nothing happens, and I get a 'puh' sound instead. Most of menu options appear greyed as well, including the 'quit' one, so I must force it. I've tryed both the MAS version and the Beta one, with the same result. ADesigner, however, works properly (both the MAS and the Beta). Any ideas? Thanks; Val -UPDATE- This behaviour only happens when I right-click on a document and select 'open with Affinity Photo'. If AP is running and I open a document using its menu, everything is OK.

    No spinning pizza? Oh yes!

    I saw that you claimed that you don't do any spinning pizza wheels, but I am sorry to say that you do on my system at least. I am working on a print ready illustration and it shouldn't be that complicated and neither that large, but I have had to force quit Affinity around half a dozen times already, doing this and doing that and it hangs. You get the crash reports, I hope. My iMac isn't the newest, but still - it is an iMac 21,5 inch, late 2009 with 12 GB of RAM installed. Good thing that there is Autosave but it is rather annoying not knowing what I can do and shouldn't do. Sometimes I am dragging and it hangs. Sometimes I am adding a gradient and it hangs. Well, I don't remember what I do always, but it hangs...
  12. Using Affinity 1.1.2 on Mac, system 10.7.5, when I export a document as EPS then go to the desktop, then come back to my document it has frozen, nothing is active and the spinning beach ball of death appears! Only force quit rectifies this! It happens every time, any ideas? Update - Just found the solution, downloaded the Beta version and it's fixed.
