View Tool (H) suddenly stops working, or its shortcuts

Recommended Posts


Have anyone encountered this bug. The view tool, shortcut (H) or pressing "space" stops working. There is not possibility to move artwork by mouse or tablet pen. The only solution is always to close and start again the designer. It happens repetitively... Any thoughts what this could cause?

Hi Arghmath,

This sounds like the known issue below. If you're using a tablet and change focus and then attempt to return to Affinity by clicking inside the UI it will cause the issue where dragging stops working correctly. This should be fixed in 1.8, however in the meantime could you try disabling Windows Ink inside the Wacom properties to see if that fixes your issue.

Hi Sean P,

Yes I thought this could cause the Wacom tablet. I will try your solution. However this particular "freeze" happened when using only mouse, so I'm not sure if this will solve it...
