Hi there

I run both Designer and Photo on Windows 10. Both have been working well until today when quite suddenly the selection brush stopped working. I have tried the following

1: reboot after cleaning cache and running disk cleanup

2: use mouse, or tablet, or touch pad

3: repeat using Designer

4: Respeat using the new beta version of photo and designer 1.6

5: Checked that flood selection and marquee selection work OK

6 check selection tools in photoshop organiser are working

I am at a loss to know what to try next, short of completely uninstalling and reinstalling,

As at 16 July, the problem has gine away,and I am unable to reproduce it. I will revert if it reappears

Hi Graham


I've not seen this and it seems to have sorted itself for you. If you see this again do let us know, a lot of the time with the selection brush it can be set to subtract instead of add which can be confusing if this is not expected so this could have been what you were seeing

Thanks for your patience. It could well have been "finger trouble" at the end of a long session of processing, or it may have been a computer issue rather than software, though it seemed to only affect Affinity. If it re-appears and I can describe it, I willl revert. If you wish you can delete this thresd for the time being.
