I’m getting a crash on iPad Air 2 running iOS 12.3.1 with Affinity Photo 1.7 whenever I use the Refine Selection tool. No matter what I do in Refine Selection, when I select the output as “new layer with mask” and hit apply it waits for a short moment then crashes. 

Attached a screen recording. 

Any help would be most appreciated!

I have had trouble making a selection. When I refined the selection and clicked mask on new layer it crashed the app. This happened several times. I used the beta 1.7 and didn't have this particular problem. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one!

Okay, video attached along with a test document where I’m getting this error. 

One thing I have noticed, the two documents where I get the crash both have Legacy White Balance and Curves Adjustments layers. I have managed to successfully use the Refine Selection tool on a document without these layers, albeit a bit slow. I don’t know if these layers have anything to do with the problem but they are the only common thing across both documents.

I’m using an iPad Pro 1st gen and this is also happening to me. Has there been any fixes for this bug?

Not yet, no. Seems to have gone a bit quiet. 

I switched from the iPad Air 2 to the iPad Pro thinking it might be my hardware, but I still get the crash even in the recent update to 1.7.1 and on the Pro.

Thank you.  The refine selection worked before it was when I clicked on apply trying  to output the refined selection to new layer or new layer with mask that the application would crash.   I still have the same problem after the uninstall and reinstall.  It sounds like you may have found a fix for your issue but the reinstall did not change my crash.

Thank You for your assistance.
