Draggin a fill layer "crashes" APhoto

Recommended Posts

Open any jpg file
Duplicate it 
Add fill layer (to top of stack)
Drag fill layer to the bottom
APhoto closes


Windows 8.1 -  AP 1.8.0.486 (beta) - unable to test on a MAC


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.

The dragging of layers works well here, both in the current beta and in the customer version.

(I use Windows 10 pro)

Thanks, both

Try dragging the Fill Layer onto the bottom layer thumbnail, or just to the right of it

does it crash then? (Seems to be position-specific)

Only on the Beta (release version is OK)

Very strange indeed,
Drag the fill-layer directly to the thumbnail, AP freezesl.

New trial
Drag the fill-layer below the image layer, everything is OK.
From this position drag the fill-layer on the thumbnail,  everything is OK.

 

Cheers

Drag the fill layer to the bottom thumbnail causes crash on Beta only. I found that you don't have to duplicate the background layer. Just create a fill layer and drag it down to the background thumbnail will close the program.

I can replicate this behaviour only in the beta version. Moving the fill layer directly under the picture layer works ok. But if I move it to the picture layer, to the right (as a child layer) the whole image disapears behind this fill layer.

Is it possible you could record this behaviour?

No, sorry I don't currently have that facility

 

Just installed the AP 1.8.0.486 (beta) on a Windows 10 PC and the "crash" is the same

I think Support should have enough information now to recreate the error, if not they can always request more information

Thanks all.
