1.7 Bug: on start UI is disabled and TAB is not working

Recommended Posts

Hey there,
so I upgraded to 1.7 and I think I got a bug.
-> I use a 2019 MacBook Pro 15" and a 2017 MacBook Air 13" both with the latest OSX

I usually plugin an external monitor when I am not on the go. And leave the MacBooks connected.

When I start affinity designer after closing it, the UI (Tools, context bar, symbolbar, and studio) is not visible. When I press <Tab> to toggle show/hide nothing happens. I have to manually go to view and enable all the UI every time I start affinity designer. This behavior is the same on both machines and reproduceable.

I think it also does not has something to do with the external monitor since I recognized that issue already with just the MacBook Air on the go. I quit affinity designer and set the macbook to sleep, start affinity designer again and have to reenable all the UI.

I got a Eizo USB C and an old EIZO DVI-D monitor but as stated above, It also happens without a monitor connected.
It nothing breaking but really annoying.

If you need more information, I will be glad to provide anything you need.

- cheers

Hi SamTheMighty,

When you say you recognised it with the MacBook Air on the go, I presume it wasn't connected to any additional monitors and demonstrated the issue with just the single MacBook screen?  Would you be able to use QuickTime to do a screen recording demonstrating the issue with just having a single screen.

Thanks,

I think i've found the problem.

If you toggle ui with tab key to hide all tools and then exit from program (cmd+Q), then on next startup you get empty editor.

Hey, 
@Sean P what @tominoff posted.
Reproduceable with: 
- my 2018 macbook pro 15"
- my 2015 macbook air 13"
- my companies 2019 macbook 15"
- and my wife's 2019 macbook pro 13"


I assume this is reproduceable with all macbooks at this point.
