Designer crash when using second monitor

Recommended Posts


I just wanted to report this unusual ongoing issue.  I have a 2 monitor set up, but nothing special.  My scenario is:

# Working on Designer (1.7) on Screen 1

# Move to Screen 2 (e.g. to do a google image search)

# Return to Designer on screen 1 it always crashes or functions don't work (e.g. pan, pen tool etc)

# Restart Designer and all works fine again

I'm running a fairly powerful PC (Intel i7-8700K, 6 core, 32GB RAM, Nvidia P2000 etc, etc) and this only occurs with Designer

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Hi Gabe,

Thanks for getting back to me.  I'm fairly sure I don't have any of those installed - I've just had a quick look through.  My company only gave me this PC about 1 month ago and as far as I can tell it hasn't had much installed yet.  It's a fairly straightforward Windows 10 build.

If you need me to check anything let me know,

Thanks again,
