Affinity photo is hanging, and I don't know what's causing it.  I have had similar freezes happen in the last few weeks of using it too.  Not many, but even just one every few days of use is enough to disrupt workflow.

What I was doing:

  1. Merged down the attached file onto a single layer.
  2. Made visible only the merged down layer.
  3. Went into develop mode on the merged down layer, and started making adjustments (shadows and highlights, contrast, etc)
  4. Pressed the split view button so that I could compare the image before and after adjustments.

My setup:

  • 64-bit
  • Windows 10 
  • 8GB RAM
  • Affinity Photo

So, interestingly, it's not showing as "not responding", but if I click on the Affinity Photo icon, it doesn't bring the window up, it just shows what was there before.  Task manager lists affinity photo, and that it is consuming 2GB of RAM (RAM usage in total running at 70%), but not using any processing power. Attempting to close the application by right clicking on Affinity Photo and pressing close window doesn't seem to do anything.

So instead I have closed the application by using "end task" in the task manager.

After re-opening the file, and doing the process again, it proceeded without hanging.

Hey Aristocrates, welcome to the Affinity Forums.

I'm having a hard time trying to reproduce this. I've done exactly as you've said but it's absolutely fine. Can you go to Preferences > Performance and screenshot your settings so I can match them?
