Big Color Squares in the Artboards Space Area? Anyone?


Recommended Posts

I've been ignoring this, but it's not going away. Yes, I deleted the app and re-installed it. Yes, I created a new document to see if it keeps happening. Maybe was the Sonoma OS upgrade on my Mac? Or Is a bug? Anyway I'm tired of ignoring so I'm sharing it to you:

It's the background area and looks like redrawing problems (only for that area AFAI can see) when zooming in/out. Just a guess here, it could be due to Sonoma's now Metal 3 intoduction (aka it's framework additions/changes). - Did you already tried if it makes any difference here, if you disable Metal acceleration and use OpenGL instead?

Than it might be an ADe under Sonoma problem, how do the other Affinity apps (APh, APub) behave here?

While most other apps seem to be functioning smoothly, I have discovered the root cause of this bug. I often encounter these puzzling squares that appear unexpectedly after applying the perspective transform and then rasterizing and trimming the selection.

If you can constantly reproduce that for ADe under Sonoma, then file in an accordingly bug report under the forums "V2 Bugs found on macOS" section (as far as there's not already one acknowledged bug for this theme).

Not to worry, I can move this thread to the relevant section such that a new thread shouldn't be required :)

I've tried replicating this here on my M1 Sonoma machine and unfortunately I'm not seeing the same issue currently - both in an Artboard / Canvas documents, and with Metal enabled / disabled.

Can you please confirm for me, are you able to replicate this from scratch in a new file? If so, please attach a copy of that new file for me.

If this only occurs in the file in your recording, please let me know and I will be happy to provide an upload link for this document, so that I can test further.

Many thanks in advance!

Please note -

I am currently out of the office for a short while whilst recovering from surgery (nothing serious!), therefore will not be available on the Forums during this time.

Should you require a response from the team in a thread I have previously replied in - please Create a New Thread and our team will be sure to reply as soon as possible.

Many thanks!
