AD Crashes when Copy/Paste Layer

Recommended Posts

More details... the crash happens when copying from a locked layer. If the layer is unlocked, then copy/paste behaves as expected.

Hi TedVDH,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
I'm having trouble reproducing this here. What type of layer are you trying to copy/paste? a vector object, text object, pixel layer...? How are you copy/pasting it? using the pop-up menu (long-press gesture) or the ellipsis menu on the top left of the app? If you could record a small clip showing the whole process it would help a lot. Thanks.

I can also confirm the same, AD crashes all the time.

 

Same here. AD (for iPad) crashes when we copy and paste a vector shape... turns all different colors - and worst of all does not save the work.

With that said, we LOVE LOVE LOVE Affinity Design. Very impressive for such a new app.

I thought it was related to a locked layer, but in trying to reproduce it I think it's related to symbols instead.

FWIW, in the just released 1.6.1.40 version of Affinity Designer for iPad, I can copy & paste anything except a symbol without crashes or other issues (including copying locked layers & vectors nested inside a symbol), but pasting a symbol into another AD document crashes the app every time. It does not matter if I use the pop-up menu or the ellipsis menu on the top left of the app.

There is also what may be a related issue (or just something I am doing wrong) in that if I drag a nested vector out of the symbol in the Layers Studio so that it is un-nested while "Synch symbols" is still enabled in the Symbols Studio, it retains the vertical orange stripe in the Layers Studio & copying that now un-nested layer & pasting it into another AD document also crashes the app.

I am surprised that dragging a nested layer out of a symbol layer still links it to its previous symbol parent at all, but that is perhaps a different issue.
