There is a problem with my HSL. It doesn't look like it is supposed to. I can't see all the colours as you can see in the image. HSL is usually showing in a form of circle but I have only one quarter of the circle.

Thanks for helping,

Welcome to the forum ll15,

Try resetting the studio, (main menu at the top of the affinity app) View > Studio > Rest Studio

I have the exact same problem. HSL is bugged and takes the form of a quarter of a circle about half the time I use it. I can also confirm the bug happens even:

- when the monitor's resolution is set to default

- with metal compute acceleration turned off

- with an older OS (10.13.6)

- With the most recent OS (10.15)

Restarting affinity photo seems to be one way to temporarily fix the issue, for me (but I'm not sure this method works 100% of the time)
