Affinity Designer 2.5.2 Crash


Recommended Posts

Just had a crash (see attached crash.txt for the report) out of nowhere. I as using Safari at the time, Designer was in the background (with 1 document open) and suddenly was gone.

macOS 14.5, Designer 2.5.2, MPB M1-Pro, 32GB

Hi @Bryan Rieger,

Has this happened since? 

From reading the crash report I can see a reference to possibly a PDF export that was happening at the time, which wouldn't match up with what you've said.  I can also see a reference to the clipboard, had you been copying anything in Designer before you went to Safari?  I'm just trying to find some steps I can take to replicate this so I can get something logged with the Developers :)

I most likely had been copying and pasting objects within the Affinity Designer doc, but hadn’t exported anything.

Are there any PDFs in the Designer file?  Could you upload the file to our Dropbox here and I'll do some copy and pasting in the file and leave it open and see if i get a crash?

Nope, no PDFs - but there is an embedded image. I've uploaded the file to your Dropbox.

Also, I just opened the file again and EVERYTHING that had rounded corners (they were all 6pt) now has rounded corners of 0pt, and anything that had multiple strokes applied suddenly has the topmost stroke with a much thinner width (0.4pt - 0.5pt). You can somewhat see the changes by toggling the outlines layer (I'm in the process of moving/changing many of the icons, but you should get the idea). I changed nothing, but suddenly I now have to go back and change them all again. Not sure what's going on… I fear I may need to revert to 2.5.0/2.4.2 (or gasp 😱, grudgingly switch to Illustrator for the time being).

I've worked in the file since the crash reported here (above) without problems. The problem of suddenly changing artwork within the file is new this morning.

Has the document been resized via File>Document Setup?  We have an issue logged where rounded corners using absolute size can be reset to 0 when a document is resized.

Yeah, that's it. It was resized from 72dpi to 300dpi late yesterday afternoon to bring an icon into a print document in order to try to keep the stroke proportions the same. There does seem to be an issue with stroke (single and multiple strokes) proportions applied in pts to a curve when the DPI is changed, or objects are copy/pasted between documents of different DPI.

Further clarification.

I've just updated that report and left a link back to this thread so the Affinity Info Bot will update here when its been resolved :) 

We do have a few issues logged regarding changing the DPI of a document and other objects getting scaled incorrectly, be it text or curves.  Hopefully we will see these resolved in the next beta/update :)
