Problem scrolling through Font list and more

Recommended Posts


I've noticed some strange behavior using the latest 2 o 3 versions of Affinity Photo. 1.8 in Mac

I couldn't place exactly the problem , but I've noticed this. 

• Scrolling through the font list when I have a text object selected is not working properly (like it used to) I begin scrolling through the font list and the list closes. I have a hard time selecting the font I want. This definitely was .not happening before. Either manually or scrolling with my mouse.... If I type the font it will work. But scrolling the font list is kind of broken...


• Also sometimes I notice that I'm working on an image in Photo (in separate mode) and I suddenly find myself in the background application that I'm also running. 


• Also starting typing in a text object in an active Photo file  will send the file to the back and bring me another Photo and make that one active (again in separate mode) .  I have to close all the opened Photo files and just have the file I want to modify to continue working .  In other words I can't have more than one Photo file open and work properly.. (Which I could before) 


Something is off.. and making Photo not working properly. maybe investigate Separate mode..


Note: Restarting Photo seems to fix the font list text issue temporarily but I've "felt" this problem arise in these couple of days ....  strange. Anyone else seen this?
