Hello!

 

Not sure if it's a bug or me not understanding how it works, but I have an unexpected behaviour when I try to add a shape (in this case it's a text frame (shape converted as a text frame) that I can add to the assets panel by "add from selection" but refuses to be added by drag and drop. The shape moves" behind" the panel instead.  All the windows (studio panels and canvas) are docked. I have even recorded a small video! :)

Maybe I misunderstood the help files though....

The Help files do say you can drag and drop to create new Assets, but as far as I know none of the Affinity applications on Windows have ever supported that.

If I remember correctly it was reported for Designer 1.6, and simply not fixed yet. I'm not sure if it's considered a bug in the Help or in the application functions. We'll see what the Serif staff say when they have time to get to your error report.

Thanks Walt,
I never tried in Designer to be honest (Never really have any use to them) so I should have tried there first before asking. (I was so proud of my first screencast as well :) )
The video tutorial doesn't mention a difference between Mac and Windows neither so I assumed it was meant to be the same.

Hi 4personnen,
This is a known issue on Windows. Please use the Add from selection command from the panel's menu as you have been doing.

OK,  good to know I'm not completely mad :)
