Latest beta 1.7.0.124 still crashing when changing personas

Recommended Posts

I downloaded and installed Affinity Photo 1.7.0.124 and checked to see if this version fixed the issue with AP crashing when changing from the Photo to the Develop personal. That problem was fixed, but when the user switches Photo -> Develop, then Develop -> Photo, then Photo -> Develop and again Develop -> Photo AP crashes. It does not matter if any changes were made or not. I have tried this now 3 times and have gotten 3 crashes. For me it made no difference if I made changes or not.

I was getting other glitchy behavior such as losing the ability to pinch and zoom on a MacBook Pro. But I think that the issue is with Metal. I unchecked the Metal Compute button and restarted the app, and I don't get these crashes as described above either. Try without Metal and see if that still happens.

It is in Preferences Performance panel. @MikeFromMesa I didn't notice this report and filed my own...

I didn't notice any difference between Metal on or off.

> It is in Preferences Performance panel

Thanks. I will give it a try.

UPDATE:

Well, I would give it a try if I could find it. I do not find a Performance panel in Preferences on my MBP. Could you be a bit more specific as to its location? There are 33 sub-panels on my system, including some add-ons like NTFS For Mac, but nothing marked Performance and nothing that looks like it should contain a Performance panel. Since the MBP does not have any option for replacing the graphics card could it be that it is just not there on my machine?

With Affinity Photo Beta in the foreground, select Preferences from the Affinity Photo Beta menu.

Sorry, I should have said in Photo as @fde101 has pointed out.

Ah. Well, that explains my problem. I was looking in the MacBook Pro Preferences thinking it was a system setting. I found it in the APB Preferences and turned it off, but it did not make any difference. I still saw the same crash.

Turned it back on again.

I logged the issue Old Bruce linked to but I've included your recipe as well. Thanks!
