Keyboard does not work in other programs (sometimes) while I am running Affinity Designer.

Recommended Posts


I am using a Macbook Pro and sometimes my keyboard will cease to function while I have Affinity Designer running.

I haven't noticed it in Affinity Designer itself, although it happens to me rather often in other programs, such as Chrome.

I am using a Mac wireless keyboard, but the build-in keyboard does not function either. Computer doesn't freeze, everything else works fine. When I close Affinity, I regain control.

Macbook Pro version: 10.9.5
Affinity Designer 1.4

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi nkear003,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

I believe this was already fixed in the latest Beta (1.4.1 beta 4). If you want to install it you can get it from here. Remember to keep the Mac App Store version installed since its needed to validate/run the Beta. Alternatively you can wait for the next Mac App Store update (hopefully this or next week if everything goes well).
