IPad Pro crash when using Move tool with Selection as Layer

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have posted this problem on the Facebook Affinity Photo group and have been advised to raise the issue here.

Don’t know if it’s something I’m doing that is wrong or perhaps a bug. I have an iPad Pro 11” 2018 256gb.

1. I load a picture and then using the rectangle selection tool I select an area of the image.

2. I then use selection as layer>toggle “edit selection as layer”. 

3. I then select the move tool and I am able to resize the selection with the on-screen handles. 

4. When I try to move the selection around the image, the app crashes.

I have attached a small screen capture of the issue and would welcome some feedback.

Using: iPad Pro 11” 2018, 256 Gb, Affinity Photo version

I have hard reset the iPad after closing all open apps, reinstalled Affinity Photo and the crash is repeatable on my iPad Pro and an old iPad Air 2.

Hey GlennButler, welcome to the Affinity Forums.

Thank you for the clear bug report.

We have managed to fix this for the macOS and Windows versions in the beta, however the iPad has not had a beta or update to resolve this yet. I am confident however that when an update for the iPad becomes available, this will be fixed.

Apologies for the inconvenience.
