Gradient tool is freezing my AD-Teejay
« on: February 20, 2017, 05:46:38 AM »
if you use the gradient tool  would you watch out for that tool (when using the ellipse or conical especially)  freezing up your AD or is it just me
i am using the ellipse at the moment i get a few colours on and then it stops and freezes

well not freeze totally i can undo ...but  my mouse icon is a white arrow and i cannot choose another tool i cannot save or swap a colour i have to wait or close ad down and start again
i had NO trouble before this last  update
has anyone else noticed this or has it just dumped on me.

I used it a good bit yesterday and did not notice any unusual happenings here, but will watch it today and report if I see something with mine.

I forgot to mention that I am only using the paid retail version of AD.  I no longer have the Beta version and I should have asked which one you are using that generates these freezes.  I'm very, very happy with this arrangement for me and have no plans to participate in the Beta testings any longer.  Just a thought  that maybe you are using the Beta version, in which case any input from me would be a moot point.  Sorry to muddy the waters....

Teejay my A D has frozen as well a few times in the past week but not sure what I have been using.  I find it freezes more if I have lots of programs opened.

nope sue i havent ...
i ran the exe AD file and you get the option to repair 
so i repaired
and although it isnt perfect and it has frozen i think i may have hit on a sorta fix.

If your AD freezes   try this..
click the AD icon on the taskbar ...ad shrinks away
click the icon on your task bar again ...AD comes back unfrozen.... well mine did anyway...twice now..
i am quite pleased with that one ...fingers crossed it works for you too

I've had a peculiar thing happen after opening AD. I got a range of blank pages of various sizes open up. It started up fine after closing and reopening though. Seems all is not well since the update.  Thanks for the tip Teejay.
