AD Crashes when sorting swatches by color

Recommended Posts

Affinity Designer is crashing every time I attempt to sort my swatches by color. I am on a Mac, OSX 10.11.6 running the latest version of AD 1.5.5

Hey gsk,

Are the swatches the default ones or your own that you have added? What type of palette have they been added as? How many would you say you are trying to sort?

I can't reproduce this with the default ones or a handful of my own so there must be something that triggers the crash.

I am running Affinity Photo 1.7.3.. It crashes everytime I try to rearrange a color swatch by dragging to a different location.  I created a new palette and added several color swatches.  When I try to drag them in darker to lighter order, it crashes when I release the mouse button to put the color in the new location.

I was able to add about 22 colors to the palette and rearrange those before the crashing started to happen.

Note: I was pulling colors from an image using the dropper in the colors panel.  In the screenshot below, I was trying to move the third color in the top row to the left one square.  It crashes when I release the mouse button.

I am running on Mac Catalina 10.15

I see that this happened two years ago in this thread.. It is still a thing.

Hey Scott Stoll,

As far as I can tell, we've always been unable to reproduce it. However, we have just reproduced it on 1 iMac. We've tested it on 2 MacBook Pro's and 2 other iMac's and it won't crash.

We have generated our own crash report so I'll update the developers. Thanks for the reminder :)
