[Affinity Photo 1.3.4] Crash When Exporting SVG of a Rectangle with Gradient Fill

Recommended Posts


  • When attempting to export a layer slice based on a rectangle with a gradient fill to an SVG with certain settings, Affinity Photo 1.3.4 crashes.

Steps to Reproduce

  • Open "AP Slice Crash.afphoto". Note the rectangle layer "transition-gradient" in the document.
  • If there isn't one already, create a slice based on this layer in Export Persona mode. Choose any of the SVG export presets.
  • Attempt to export this slice, either using the "Share" icon next to the slice in the Slices palette, or by clicking the "Export Selected" button.

Expected Results

  • Affinity Photo exports an SVG of this slice and continues to function.

Actual Results

  • Affinity Photo crashes without exporting the slice to SVG.


  • This crash occurs on OS X El Capitan Version 10.11 Beta (15A215h), which may or may not be related.
  • I've included a test document and a video of the crash occurring on my 15" Retina MacBook Pro (Mid 2013) while the dedicated graphics card is active.

Hi Joe,


I've just taken a look at this and fixed it for the next update/beta release. You have a gradient transparency on the object and it seems to be causing a crash - if you remove the transparency it will not fail. I have fixed the cause of the problem so in the future this bug will be gone.


Sorry for the inconvenience in the meantime :(
