Crasher: when copying a vector layer imported from a PSD file

Recommended Posts

I have applied a BW adjustment to the vector layer.

If you try to copy the layer (CMD+C) , Photo crashes immediately.

With the BW adjustment turned off, it does not crash.

(Photo 1.8.4 • MacOS 10.15.6 • iMac Pro)

NOTE: you might need to deselect and select again the vector layer before it crashes

EDIT: I could not reproduce this on my 16-inch 2019 MBP

Hi Nikos,
I'm having trouble reproducing the crash here. Is it possible you have some clipboard manager/utility running on that system that may be interfering with Affinity Photo? Are you able to reproduce the crash in a new user account? Can you please attach the crash report to your reply here? Thanks.

From another account I cannot reproduce it either.

On the account the crash occurs, I have Quicksilver installed, with a plugin to keep history of the clipboard.

Perhaps this causes the issue.
Anyway, a crash means an unhandled exception... The developers should take a look at it.


EDIT: It certainly is caused by Quicksilver. I attach a file with versions etc. If I close  Quicksilver,  the crash does not occur.

HOWEVER, having Photo open and trying to open QuickSilver, it caused Photo to crash! Which I find hard to explain...
