Screen display problems 1.6.3.96

5 posts in this topic

Really don't know if this is a bug or not, but I lost control of the screen through a series of clicks, and could not recover despite using the view menu and various zoom options, so I don't know if I could repeat the process.  Attached is a full screen picture of the event.  Please note the big discrepancies - No toolbar on left even when minimizing view; separated panes for the image and the control panels; the third bar down loses the bottom pixels of the text; and my biggest gripe through all of the versions back to 2016  is when I click on VIEW, the menu box displays ZOOM on the first line with an arrow pointing right, but the submenu always is on the left and it requires several attempts to get there as it disappears if the cursor strays from the zoom text line.

It looks like you have inadvertently undocked one of your images. Affinity Photo  allows you to undock your images so you can position them on your screen how you would like them.  This allows such things as a side by side comparison of two images.

In your case the Toolbar on the left is simply hidden as the undocked image is covering it, likewise it is partially covering "the third bar down" which is why you cant see the bottom pixels of the text.

To redock the image simply grab it by the top of its window and drag it back to where it normally resides then let go of the mouse.

Admittedly undocking and redocking image windows is a bit of a pain and hit and miss at times but with practice you will see how it works.


Due to the ongoing Brexit negotiations, punctuation, spelling and grammar will be used sparingly until further notice.

Also, the position of the menu is determined by a setting in Windows in 'Tablet PC Settings', which you can find in 'Control Panel'.

Thanks for the info guys, but it's going to difficult to recreate the mess that happened, because, as carl123 said, it was inadvertent.  I am looking at it as a challenge if the user manual covers the subject.

Hi Iam1of 2, pretty easy to reproduce actually just open two images and undock one of them, hardly a 'mess'. Not sure if I've ever used a graphics package that doesn't support this functionality.

Regards
