Unwanted switching between windows and odd shape colour behaviour

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am seeing consistently strange behaviour with the shape tool and two documents open.

1) When choosing the shape colour the picker closes as soon as the mouse clicks and then Photo switches to the other window

2) When adjusting the opacity slider for the new shape, the other document window becomes active and the shape loses its colour

Hey Efvee,

I can reproduce this in the retail version however I have just checked the beta and it seems to be fixed. If you do notice it again after the retail version updates, please reply in this thread so I get notified. Thanks :)

I am seeing something similar in both Photos and Publisher when I have two documents open. In the current instance I am trying to edit text in Photos document and as soon as I have typed one letter it switches to the other document, which is open on my other monitor. Publisher was doing something similar, I just don't remember the exact edit I was doing. I am on Mac, using the latest public updates (not Beta) of both programs.

Hey TheresainAK,

What version of the app are you using? Have you tried to reproduce it with the beta? I'm hoping this is truly fixed in the beta but I'm all ears if you're still hitting the issue.

Just updated to v. 1.8.3 .... (imac 2019, mojave 10.14.4,  affinity photo)

Sadly, the text type issue is not yet solved:  typing (or deleting) just one character brings up other open file.

Closing all other files, and it works fine.

Hi @TheresainAK, @alex_blanc,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
Can you both please confirm you are working in Separated Mode? If so t
he text issue is (now) also logged and hopefully fixed in an upcoming Beta/update. My apologies for the inconvenience caused. As pointed out working with a single document at a time or merging the document windows in Separated Mode (menu Window > Merge All Windows) should solve the issue until the fix is ready.
Thanks for your support.

Hello, any news on this ...? will there be a new Beta or Patch soon to fix the text and window issues?

The text related window switching appears to be fixed in 1.8.4 for all apps i.e. Photo, Designer, and Publisher.

Good work!
