Crash when scrolling through slices list

Recommended Posts

The German Affinity Designer (and all known versions before that) for Windows reliably crashes under the following conditions (see attached video):

  • On a file with a large number of slices, scroll bars appear for the slices list. Fine.
  • I do not scroll through this list by dragging the scroll indicator, but use the mouse scroll wheel instead (no problems happen when dragging). Scrolling to the end of the list (at 0:12) is possible, Designer uses around 6% CPU time. Fine.
  • Expanding the last slice in the list (0:13) makes the list take up more space, so the scroll bar reflects that.
  • Now I mouse-wheel-scroll slowly to the end of the list, which by some reason now contains lots of unused space at its end.
  • At 0:16, though I still scroll down, the list jumps up, Designer freezes, CPU usage increases to 25% (which is 100% of one core), and Designer can only be killed manually.

Since I only have this one file with as many slices, I don't know whether or not the problem is repeatable with other files. If you need the file for debugging, please send me a private link – I may not post this publicly...
