Publisher 2.1.0: drag drop picture frames in layers panel deletes other picture frames/contents

Recommended Posts

I found this strange behaviour.

EDIT: this also applies to Beta

I want to change the layer order in the layers panel. The three other picture frames (sibblings) get deleted randomly during dragdrop as well as after droping the draged layer at the new position in the stack. All bitmaps are linked.

The only way to get the the layer to the target position without errors is by using the menu ordering commands (or keyboard shortcuts):



It seems that, allthough the insertion position is marked BETWEEN the other picture frames, the draged picture frame is droped INTO the hovered/targeted picture frame and replaces its contents. Additionally the draged picture frame looses its content randomly.

Here is a simplified test file with embeded bitmaps:




Hardware: Windows 10 Pro for Workstations (22H2, build 19045.3208, Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.19053.1000.0), 8 core Intel(R) Xeon(R) W-2145 CPU @ 3.70GHz, 64 GB RAM, NVIDIA Quadro P4000 (driver 528.89), 2 x 1GB SSD. 1 Display set to native 2560 x 1440.
Software: Affinity v1 - Designer/Publisher/Photo (, Affinity v2 (universal license) - Designer/Publisher/Photo, v2 betas.
