Patch Tool doesn't work (was: Andy Bennett)

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the forums, @Andy Bennett, @Cosmopolish, @Phil Jackson

Each of you need to provide more information so someone can provide meaningful help.

  • OS, Mac or Windows, and versions
  • Using a designated video card? IF so what (Nvidia, Intel...)?
  • Do you have Hardware Acceleration, OpenCL active? If so, have you tried to deactivate it? (Preferences>Performance)

Without being able to look over your shoulder, no one can see just how the patch tool is not working as you expect it to. So either provide a detailed description of what your doing, what it's doing or not doing, or upload screenshots or a short video clip showing this behavior.

Thank you. :)

Hi,

  •  Windows 10
  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050
  • Hardware acceleration was active on default and the patch tool didn't work. When disabled, the patch tool works.

I had 3 different issues with the patch tool:

1. When selecting the area and clicking away to confirm I get lines across the selection and some strange noise in the histogram.

2. When selecting the area and clicking away to confirm I get a black patch in place of the selection.

3. The patch tool works more like a hard stamp tool.

I hope it's visible on the screens attached.

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums :) 

To all in this thread:

This issue in 1.9.0 when hardware acceleration is enabled has been addressed in the latest beta released yesterday

You can install the beta in parallel with the release version if you want to try this fix for us.

This problem will therefore be addressed in the 1.9.1 update that will follow soon.
