Affinity Designer crashes when using freehand vector brush


Recommended Posts

Hello,

Affinity Designer crashes every-time I use the freehand vector brush tool with my Wacom tablet, sometimes I can draw for a few minutes before it crashes.

Mac user:  OS 10.15.6 (Latest Version) It also Crashed on the previous version.

Affinity designer: 1.8.4 (latest version)

Tablet: Wacom Intuous Pro M with the latest drivers (6.3.40-2)

Any thoughts on how to fix this?

Hi, I´m having the same issue. Both freehand vector tool and pencil tool. Can draw for a few minutes, and then suddenly crashes. 

MacOS 10.15.6, Affinity Designer 1.8.4 and Wacom Cintq 16 with the latest drivers. 

Quick edit: It will crash if you just draw with the mouse as well.

Hi ArtistWright

We're aware of a crash that is happening when drawing, however would you be able to post the contents of the crash report that appears please? Do you find it only crashes when using the Stabiliser option? Do you mind trying without that to see if that prevents the crashes you're getting?

 

Thor E,
Again could you attach the crash reports you're getting? Are you also using the Stabiliser option? Does turning that off prevent the crashes?

I´m saving a lot. Doing some pausing between strokes, it seems to help some. It still crashes from time to time.

Finished that part of the project, so I havent used the pen tool a lot lately, but I`m going to need it soon. So I hope there will be a fix.

We have made fixes/improvements to this area (Crash when drawing with Pencil Tool) of the program in the latest customer beta. If you would like to try these changes the beta software is available in the forum post listed below.

The latest beta build is downloadable from links at the top of each of these beta forum posts.

This beta installs parallel, next to the release version (they do not overwrite your release) and so the fixes can be tried in the beta without affecting your normal workflow in the release version.

Once our beta programs have been through a full beta process the change will be released in a future free 1.9.0 update/patch to all customers.

I now had the chance to check the current 1.9 beta on MacOS.

Hooray! The bug is gone (for me). While the last month AD crashed all 1-5 Minutes on me while using Vector Brush, with 1.9 beta I could draw for 3 hours in a row! No crash!

Big, big thanks to the developer that ciould finally nail this one!
