  1. I've been having this issue since before 1.8, but it just got worse. I use Affinity Design, Publisher, and Photo on my laptop. However, I have a second screen attached via USB C hub. I use Affinity on the second screen since it's bigger and my laptop screen is too small. Every time I open the software, on the Splash Screen (or whatever you call the all-black screen with the small box that gives you the option to open a new document), it does not actually fit my screen (Image 1). Instead, it is far skewed up , making it impossible to click on. I've simply gotten in the habit of clicking ESC every time, and then using the menu to create a new document. However, starting with 1.8, the new document setup now uses that same setup (Image 2). This makes it IMPOSSIBLE to create the right size. When I drag Affinity over to my primary display, close the document, reopen the document in the smaller window, it still appears on the second screen like in image 2. Obviously this is a significant issue, and I'm hoping I can get some help with it. Thanks in advance!
  2. I am working on a Microsoft surface book and have a Asus second screen with a HDMI cable. When working with Layers and Adjustments the dialogue boxes will not come up to fine tune adjustments.
  3. Hey there, since i updated my affinity designer on ht elatest version (, the program always crashes when unpluging the tools from the dock! I use two screens. In version 1.5 i just draged all most of the toolbar on the second screen so i had more space to work on the main screen. But now, and its it's not a question of how many tools i "unplug" from the toolbar, the whole program crashes. Already reportet on it. Anybody has the same problems or is it just about the performance of my PC? Cheers Dominik from GER
  4. When I open additional panels from the menu 'View' > 'Studio' (?) (german version: 'Ansicht' > 'Studio') they come up as grey, empty rectangles. No content, no text, no header/title. I can move them around by click-hold at their upper edge (the un-visible title-area) but they remain empty grey rectangles. When I release the mouse and grab+move them again, then the place underneath them appears only grey now, too. It covers the content of the panels which were underneath, just leaving their black header and title text. Also, on moving such additionally opened palettes around they change their size occasionally, for instance from a square to a long vertical stripe. See the two attached screenshots of both monitors: – screen of macbook (15") with app palettes only – 2nd screen (22") with app main window (document, tools, layer panel) Quit + restart the app resolved this issue, all recently opened palettes appear now with content. They are positioned somewhere on the screen above the already existing palettes. thomas
