Affinity Designer Crashes after copy & paste of selected window capture

BUG: Affinity Designer Crashes after copy & paste of selected window capture.

I have try several screen capture applications (for example Voila, Jing) and all available Chrome extensions. All of them after you paste copied from clipboard screen capture selection to Affinity Designer window cause Affinity Designer crash or pastes an empty window. The selected area copy and paste only worked with only one app Snagit.

Hi zoom999777,


I've tried about 7 capture extensions in total. I'm having trouble with 1 or 2 of the Chrome Extensions however Jing seemed to work OK for me.

These were the steps I took:


1. Installed Jing and signed up

2. Clicked the icon in the top right corner and chose 'Capture'

3. Dragged out a selection

4. Clicked 'Capture an Image'

5. Chose 'Copy' from the options at the bottom

6. Loaded up Designer

7. File > New from Clipboard (I also just pasted it into a blank document)

The image appeared just fine and I experienced no crashes. One of the extensions I used called 'Awesome Screenshot' pasted in a blank image.

I'll keep experimenting but can you check those steps I took to see if they match what you're doing please.
