Crashing constantly when zooming in or out

Recommended Posts

Hello! I have been having an issue recently where Affinity Designer will crash over and over and over mid project when I go to zoom in or out. It's happened at random times, not always at the same point. It can be a brand new document 2 minutes in or in a project file that I've been working on for over an hour. It's really frustrating and I don't know how to fix it. I've looked up the third-party applications that cause problems thread and none of those are installed or running on my pc. I've turned off hardware acceleration and that I thought fixed the problem for a while, but it's back and now it's happening often. I don't see anything else online to change or try so I'm stuck. Please help, I have some ongoing projects that I need to finish up.

1. Yes I am on the latest version
2. Yes, I can reproduce it. It like I said happens in new documents, and other project files.

- OS: Windows 11 Pro 21H2 22000.318
- Hardware Acceleration is turned off
- Step-By-Step:
   - Open new or used document
   - Work on it for about 5 minutes. (Adding vectors, textures, logos, etc...)
   - Zoom in to line something up better
   - Zoom back out
   - Crash
- Would love to share a screen capture, but I can't upload a video on my internet
- Shouldn't be any unusual hardware.
- Nothing has changed recently that I know of.

- Custom Build Desktop
- AMD Ryzen 3 3700X (Not overclocked)
- 32GB RAM
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 3060Ti
- WD Black 500GB NVMe M.2 SSD (Where the application is installed)
- Seagate 2TB HDD (Where project files are stored)
- Dual Monitors (1080p, 144Hz through DisplayPort)

If I need to share anything else like my settings or anything like that let me know. Thank you
