Big Ghost Graphics Issue Publisher 1.10.5


Recommended Posts

I'm a big big fan of Affinity Publisher. This software is just a big workflow accelerator in my daily work. But sometimes, some annoying bugs are polluting my concentration ;). 

One of the most annoying bug is a certain type of Ghost graphics that, when moving from page to page, displays bad graphic informations. 
With previous versions, I was unable to select ghost graphics but now, I can make them appear whereas they don't exist on the page. So that's weeeeeeird and it messes everything up. 

Here is a video of this weird behavior.

I uploaded it on youtube because I could not be able to attach it to the message... 
Thx for your feedback.

Not really certain what it is that I am seeing there on that video. Are you just using scrolling to move through the document? It may be that what you are seeing is the layer panel being on the selected page but the view being on a different page altogether.

Again, I have to say that I do not know what it is I am seeing on that video. It looks like some one is scrolling randomly, and pausing occasionally.

MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012) Mac OS 10.12.6 || Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 11.6.8

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.

It's simple : I'm moving from page to page inside Publisher. 
At the beginning of the video I'm in Designer (inside Publisher) in outline mode to show you the shapes on the artboards. This X-Ray view is very clear about the different vector shapes in the document. 
-
Then, I'm switching from Designer space to Publisher space and I'm moving from page to page to show the content in a "regular" view. 
You can then see that if you move from page A to page B, and if you try to select objects on page B, Publisher displays ghost content from page A. 
This happens everytime, unless you've previously clicked on the page itself, so Publisher knows immediately what page you're working on. 
I can reproduce this everytime in any situation. Which leads to a bad behavior of the app that should know what page you're working on, or which content depends to which page. That's a crazy issue. 
-

Worse than that, in previous versions, I was not able to select and play with the ghost content. 
Whereas in this version, I'm able, not only to select the ghosted content, but also to make it pop on the wrong page, if I click and drag it (what is shown on the video).

Here is a new upload, even if, apparently, everyone can see this content on youtube. publisher-ghost-content-low.mov

Check Preferences>Performance.
Renderer or Metal Computing might be the cause.

So what should be the good preset under Performance Tab? Metal? 
For now, OpenGL was automatically selected.

Hi @artnok,

Thanks for your report :)

I can confirm I'm able to replicate this issue here and I'm getting it logged with our developers now - I've been able to reproduce this on both Mac and Windows, so I don't believe that Metal/OpenGL rendering is the cause of this.

I hope this helps!
