1.7.1 Designer crashes when opening Brushes Panel

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Great work on the new Designer / Photo release @affinity!

I have a bug in Designer stable and beta (1.7.1.404), when I try to open / activate the Brushes Panel the app crashes instantaneously. I had this problem earlier too, but was relieved when I saw it fixed in the previous release (1.7.0.367). Now it's back. I had the same problem with Photo too. Now Photo won't launch at all (since the Brush panel is open by default I think, so resetting the Studio does not help). Yes, I tried removing all third party brushes, and as I said previous release worked without any problems.

Any help is appreciated. (How do I roll back my active Designer / Photo instance to an earlier version? Simply uninstall and reinstall using the previous installer?)

Thanks!

Unfortunately using outdated versions of Designer and Photo breaks Studio Link in Publisher... so any help would be appreciated. Does anyone experience the same problem as me? (Designer / Photo crashes when Brushes panel is activated). Thanks.

@Mark Ingram It is the default setting for a Full HD monitor (100%). I haven't upgraded on my other devices because of this crash.

@Mark Ingram do you have any suggestions that I can try? Resetting the app and reinstalling does not help. Thanks.

Update:

On my macbook pro the brush panel works in every app (on Win 10 - scaling 200% - latest builds). I was able to save the file that stores the studio panel preferences and copy it to my other windows machine (100% display scale). I was able to open the apps without crash on start, since in the settings file the brush panel wasn't in opened state, but whenever I try to open it (the Brushes panel), the apps crashes. Even from publisher, it crashes if I try to use the studio link feature.

Another update...

After a system restart on my Mac with Win10 the updated apps (1.7.1) crash too when the Brush Panel is open. :(
