Crashing from brushes and styles panels

Recommended Posts


I'm having some real issues trying to use brushes and saving styles. All I am trying to do is create a rectangle, set the fill to transparent and apply a brush to the stroke. Then I would like to save this as a new style.

So far, I haven't been able to do this. The application freezes either when selecting the brush or when trying to access the style panel. I then have to force close the application.

I have already tried holding CTRL when starting the application and resetting everything. That seems to allow me to select the brush without crashing. But it will still crash at the style panel.

I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the application but no changes there either.

Any other suggestions? I don't remember if I've ever tried to use this feature on this device, so I don't know if it worked previously.

It looks like something must have been corrupted with the styles panel perhaps.

I found the Designer folder in C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Affinity and renamed it. When I opened it again it appears to be working again.

Thankfully I don't have many settings to set up again.

Hi Rejam,

Welcome to the forums :)

I am glad you were able to fix this issue if possible could you send me the file you renamed so I can try and recreate this here at my end?
