Hi guys,


(if this bug has already been noticed, please delete this post!)


Sometimes when I open a project and I press the green dot to open it full screen, it start making strange things (like images appearing and disappearing, changing size etc...). In that case I have to restart the app.

That doesn't happens if I enlarge the app to full screen and than I open a project.

I work on a MacBook Pro 2015 with macOS Sierra 10.12.6 (16G1314) and the version of Affinity Designer is 1.6.1


Thank you,

Hey Matteo,

Can you confirm what Display settings you have in Affinity Designer > Preferences > Performance?

Could you record a QuickTime video se we can see exactly what is happening?

Hey driven1106, welcome to the Affinity Forums.

Can you try the following:

  1. Change Retina Rendering to Low
  2. Change View Quality to Best

Can you also provide your specs, the monitor you are using and how it is connected to your Mac.

Cheers :)
