Affinity Photo - crashes when copying Live Displacement Map to clipboard

Recommended Posts

This is 100% reproducible: create a layer with a live displacement map based on "Underlying layers." Copy that layer to the clipboard. Affinity Photo crashes.

If you disable the live displacement map layer first, the copy succeeds.


I recorded a Camtasia screen recording of the bug in action here:

Hi ProducerBoy


I've been trying this but I've not had any crashes on copying. Is this something that is occurring every time in any file or is it this particular one. If it is only the file used in the video are you able to attach it  for us to look into?

Hi, Chris_K!


Your comment suddenly got me wondering if there was anything about my configuration that could affect copy and paste. Indeed, there is. I use PASTE.APP, which is a clipboard monitor that keeps a history of my CUT and PASTE actions. I just terminated PASTE and tried again, and this time the CUT/COPY worked like a charm. I restarted PASTE.APP and the crash started happening again. So apparently, the problem isn't Affinity Photo, it's PASTE.APP.


In case you want to investigate PASTE, it's: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/paste-2/id967805235?mt=12


My apologies for the mixup.


Best Wishes --Stever
