.afphoto file with single pixel layer, Affinity photo unable to edit it.

Recommended Posts

Occasionally, using Affinity Photo 1.5.2, an .aphoto file ceases to respond to edits. I don't have a way to reproduce this reliably yet, but the attached file's a sample that shows the problem.

(Affinity Designer 1.5.5 isn't happy to work with that file either.)


In this case, on the original image, I was using the inpainting tool again and again, and at some point the edits ceased to work.


If the pixel layer is duplicated using command + 'J', the new layer contains ... something ... but not the image from the duplicated layer.


'Edit/copy from the pixel layer' and then 'File/New from clipboard' shows unhappy results too.


Apologies in advance if this is me missing something obvious.

You have a hidden pixel selection of 2px X 10px. 


CTRL D will clear the selection and the document should then function as normal


This "bug" has been reported before.

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.
