weird goings-on in history


Recommended Posts

I'm using Photo version 1.8.5.703 in Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. I've been working on a few large-ish files for the last few days and last night I found AP getting a little sluggish and I found I was using a large portion of my system RAM. I also had somehow managed to get my Colors panel situated so that the top edge was off-screen, preventing me from moving it. So I did a Studio Reset to get the Colors panel back to its default position, exited the program to reset the system RAM, and restarted it.

Before I shut it down my history panel was showing only text for the individual entries (set visibility, delete levels, etc) but after I restarted the program the entries in the history panel have a thumbnail of the layer and the date and time. Is this because of the Studio Reset, or did I pop into a new version when I exited the program and restarted it?

You have to explicitly save with history. File > Save History With Document this needs to have a check mark. It will also make your document larger and it could also use more RAM.

MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012) Mac OS 10.12.6 || Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 11.7

Affinity Designer 1.10.5 | Affinity Photo 1.10.5 | Affinity Publisher 1.10.5 | Beta versions as they appear.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

Uhhh... I don't know what this has to do with my question.

With the History panel selected you will see a burger menu on the far right. Clicking that menu will allow you to select the Advanced option which will then show Thumbnails and a time and date for all the History entries

R.I.P

Okay, got it. Thanks very much.
