Bug: Place Image Tool Not Working

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Version (most recent)

Cannot place images into document.

After clicking "place image tool" dialog opens up to pick image file. Pick image file, click OK - but now the bug:

Instead of getting the special cursor that lets you draw a rectangle, you get nothing.

The image places IMMEDIATELY onto the page, filling it completely no matter how small. The image can then no longer be changed.


Due to this bug, no document with images in it can be created. Which is bad, as I want to create a photography magazine.

correct software version by adding the forgotten "0"

Hi World View,

Can you let me know what macOS you are on?

Does this happen on a new document?

I'm on High Sierra. Yes, on a document I just started in this version.

I have to use the picture frame tool in order to place an image.


PS: I need a manual of Affinity. I heard some people put together a pdf of the help section. Is it possible to get one of these?
