I keep finding unexpected behaviours when working with an external display plugged into my MacBook Pro. I really get the feeling that perhaps not much testing has been done on this or similar set ups. This applies to all three apps if I'm honest. Just the most recent example was one I experiences with Published. Often popup windows or panels appear on the screen other than the one being used. The latest one was that the text frame settings panel appeared on my MacBooks display rather than the external one I was working on. I tried to adjust the colour using the colour wheel but the colour would not change. I moved the panel to the same display as the one being used for publisher and immediately it started working. Interestingly, when then moving the panel back to the MacBook display it carried on working as expected. Another recent one was the other day I was using Designer and on one display the artboards started showing as much smaller than they should be, with the artwork appearing to incorrectly extend far beyond the limits even though. Moving the window between displays and then back again resolved this issue. Could they be related?
When Affinity Photo was last on the secondary monitor, and the secondary monitor is then disconnected, Affinity Photo will be started off screen instead of on the primary monitor. In my case I have a graphics tablet with monitor that I plug in and out quite frequently. It's not really a bug and more of a feature, so I put it here, but I hope it still gets "fixed". For everyone else with this problem: what worked for me was to shift-rightclick the icon in the taskbar, click "Move" and then use the arrow keys to bring it back.
I think it is my third or fourth time that I write something about this bug, and it is a huge one. I am sick to write about it, I am sick to still get it, I am sick of all the news about Affinity and still having this huge issue. Happily this tool is not too costy, but I have to admit that is it maybe it is F-word Crap! I'll go bak to Illustrator, seriously I just can't work with this. The devs should be ashamed sorry to say something as harsh and negative, I always talked to my colleagues and friends in the business like Affinity designer is a a good tool, but with that kind of bug I can't say it anymore, seriously you guys do F-word something just do it!!!! Here's the thing for the fourth times at least, when I work with Affinity Designer on my MacBook Pro 15" 2016, 4BG Radeon 460, 16BG Ram, Intel i7 2.9Ghz, latest MacOS and that I connect a second display and I want to work on that 32" 2K display, there is some few manipulations that creates glitch that makes things disappear. Like if I draw a square and I zoom in it is gonna disappear partly or entirely, then I zoom out and still there is a glitch. It is the only tool that does that, After Effects works fine, Sketch works fine, only Affinity Designer. Don't work on new features, don't do anything but bug fixes please guys seriously stop everything just do bug fixes, not just tis one, It may have others, but this one is pretty annoying and huge, for f**** sake! People don't all works on the monitor of their laptop!!! Thank You
