Painter 2021 & 2022 closes when trying to do a "save-as"

Painter 2021 & 2022 both closes when trying to do a "save-as" after an auto-paint.

Ran Auto-paint 3 times using the Sargent brush. When I tried to do a Save-As, both programs just close out. This has happed 3 time in a row.

A few minutes earlier Painter 2021 locked up. I had to use the Task Manager to unlock it, by ending task.

What is the deal?

  • I just tried painter 2022, It does Not work with the Microsoft surface Pro 7. (i7 cpu) Pressure and tilt support do not wort. In RTS mode you get a broken line.

    in wacom  which is only for external tablets you get a solid line with no pressure or tilt variation.

    I spent numerous hours with Corel  painter 2020, 2021 and it was and is still not working in 2022.

    and it also crashes.

  • HI Don,

    I just tried the following steps on my own system, to see if I could get it to crash...note I am using Windows 10 with a Wacom Intuos Medium and Painter 2022:

    1. Opened a JPG

    2. Selected Sargent > Sargent

    3. Opened the Autopainting panel, clicked Play

    4. File > Save As

    5. Saved the file as RIF

    Did not crash. So I tried something else...

    1. Opened a JPG

    2. File > Quick Clone

    3. Selected Sargent > Sargent

    4. Enabled Clone Color

    5. Opened the Autopainting panel, clicked Play

    6. File > Save As

    7. Saved the files as RIF

    Did not crash.

    Can you tell me what steps I'm missing? This way I can see if I can get the same crash as you...
