Moving window in-between displays with different DPI scales causes alternate visibility clipping in Layers

Recommended Posts

Currently, I have my DPIs mismatched in order to avoid this bug. When moving Affinity Photo from my primary monitor 125% DPI) to my secondary (150% DPI), moving it back to the primary causes odd visibility clipping in layers that can be seen by toggling visibility on and off. As seen here:


Test file: DSC_0135.afphoto

Steps to reproduce (Requires multi-monitor):

1. Load a file into Affinity on monitor 1 (Embed a RAW in my case)
2. Move window to secondary monitor.
3. Move window back to primary monitor and toggle visibility on layers to see clipping area...

Fix: Panning or Zooming to force display update.
