Recommended Posts

Hello  @IPv6,
Disable the Clipboard Manager in Windows, then everything should work as usual.

 

Cheers

Sorry, didn`t get it, i do not use any clipboard managers. Or you mean windows internals flags for something specific (hard to tell from your screenshot)?
Anyway, it definitely should work on plain fresh system (i never enable fancy stuff manually). and it working with other layers without problems

In Windows 10, is a new Clipboard Manager been introduced, this is usually activated.
This manager causes some problems in Affinity-Photo.
The Clipboard Manager do you find under Settings, then System and then Clipboard Manager,
here can you the manager deactivated or activated.


I hope it helps.

But I agree - it shouldn't crash in either case

It's possible that it's the Windows clipboard Manager that's crashing, and taking Photo down with it.

Yes. 

When I said "Clipboard History setting that causes the crash", I simply meant the position of the setting, and wasn't speculating about which actual program is crashing.

Funny enough, but seems this crash has to do nothing with new clipboard manager. Its not present on my system at all - my settings app even dont not have such entry.
Here is the screen (russian is mine, english is screenshot from the article, describing this clipboard manager).

Anyway, i do a lot of copy-paste for layers. In common this works well and layer copy with all inners and styles is really great feature (photoshop lacks this, for exaple).
Its just this two layers can be copied... i suspect because there is no layers with pixels inside them. But this should not crash app for sure, imho

I have repeated your steps on my Windows 10 Versio 1903 OS Build 18362.53 64-bit PC. Clipboard Manager is on, and Sync automatically is on. Clipboard History is also on. No crash. I copied and pasted CTRL>C and CTRL>V without a problem.

Try as I might, I cannot repeat your problem.
