Mac Info panel values not changing until mouse released

Recommended Posts

I am using Affinity 1.7.3 on a MacBook Pro running OS X 10.13.6.   The problem I am seeing happens when I have a photo opened and then open the Info Panel.  I can set the Info Panel crosshair to anywhere in the picture to observe changes in RGB values as I make adjustments to the picture.  If I open up an adjustment such as HSL, Color Balance, etc I can move the adjustment sliders and observe changes in the picture, however the Info Panel RBG values don't change until I release the mouse button.   I have seen numerous videos where the Info Panel RGB indicators change dynamically with changes in the slider, but I can't get my system to operate this way.  I observe the same behavior on my Mac whether I use the trackpad or an external USB mouse.

Does anyone have any idea if there is a way to get the Info Panel indicators to operate dynamically as the adjustment sliders are changed?

Hey rvmeush,

I have just checked this on my Mac and I get the same experience as yourself. 

I then tried it on my Windows machine and that does give me dynamic feedback. I will chase this up with the developers. Thanks for raising this.

Hi guys,

I'm having the same problem but time has moved on to June 2021 and apparently there's been no resolution to the problem.  Anyone with any ideas. I'm on a Mac running Affinity Photo 1.9.3 

All I can add is that it is still not fixed in the Mac beta.
