In Affinity Photo while working on an an image, I'm not able to pan the image using the View (hand) tool while zoomed in. I'm trying to follow one of Drippy Cat's Tutorials, using a DNG file he provides. This is not specific to this file though. Once I have several layers, after zooming in, the Hand tool ceases to work.

  • To reproduce, open an image, duplicate the background, for a base layer to start with your processing. Rename it if you wish.
  • Apply a Layer Blend Mode to the duplicated layer (base). Per the tutorial I applied Soft Light.
  • Adjust Opacity to taste.
  • Apply a Layer Mask
  • Paint out areas (Basic, Large, Soft Brush)
  • Adjust Opacity
  • Rename
  • Right-Click to Merge Visible.

At this time I was zoomed in to the image, using the Zoom Tool (Z) and my pen tablet, dragging to zoom in/out. I tried to move/Pan the image and the View tool (hand) would not respond. I can not move the document/image. I've tried this with my mouse as well as my pen tablet (Wacom Intuos 3 Small). I can do other things, change tools, but can not pan. If I save and then close the document, then reopen, the view tool works again.

Don't know what's going on. After being able to replicate this several times, now I can't. I closed the program, went about doing other things, not shutting down my pc. After about 2 hrs I decided to try working on the tutorial again. Since then the view tool has not froze.
