Opening Color Chooser freezes Publisher

Recommended Posts

Assign a color to an object (e.g. a circle) using e.g. Swatches panel.

Double click the Fill color well of the Swatches panel to open Choose Color panel.

The app does not response and completely freezes. In Task Manager the app, however, is not marked to be ("not responding"), but that is exactly how it seems to behave, and it must be forced to be closed.

I can reproduce it too.

I can't modify the color on the swatches panel or in the tool panel clicking on the round fill colour.
But I can modify the colour using the rectangular sample on the contextual bar at the top.

We have made fixes/improvements to this area (App freezes editing colour from swatches tab) of the program in the latest Affinity Publisher beta. If you would like to try these changes the beta software is available in the forum posts listed below. Once Affinity Publisher has been through a full beta process the change will be released in a future free 1.8.0 update to all customers.

The 1.8.0 builds are in links at the top of these forum posts
