Affinity Designer - Changing Constraints crashes the application

Recommended Posts



I've recently purchased Affinity Designer for Windows and I am really liking it so far. But I've found a problem while playing around with it. 


Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a new document 
  2. Open the Navigation.afdesign from the Grade-UI-Kit
  3. Select the Menu Gradient group in the Light Version and copy it to the clipboard with Ctrl+C
  4. Paste the group in the new document
  5. Selected the Icons group in the layers panel and open the Constraints tool
  6. As soon as you want to change the constraints of the group, the application crashes.

I've added the document to the attachment. If you open the document, you can skip step 1-4.


This is the crash report from the windows event log:

Faulting application name: Designer.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x58414e28

Any news on this?


Experiencing the same issue Application just instantly closes with no crash report in the Event Viewer. I can reproduce it with my own file and the one attached to the original post.

Hello, I am having similar issues with contraints on windows 10.

Here are recreated steps:

1) create an artboard 1600px by 3200px

2) create a group called "Header"  1600px by 800px with a hero image as a child

3) Anchored "Header" group on all side of Artboard

4) Anchored hero image on all sides of the group

- Hero image grow excessively large and floats to the right of the Artboard and does not display image. It is as if it is making itself an Artboard

- Tried checking and unchecking the image layer and it does not display

- It seems like there is an issue with nested constraints.
