Just getting started and need some help


I just downloaded Synfig and am having problems. I was hoping someone can give me a start in the right direction.

When I try to enlarge the middle screen where you do all the drawings everything freezes. I’ve tried several times and the same thing happens. Is there a fix for this or do I need to use the tiny screen all the time?


This is a known issue in Windows. Just press Alt+tab to switch to other application and it will recover to a normal state.

Also, if you’re using latest stable version you can try to disable the “Use a single thread” option at the setup.

Please report your version to confirm the issue.
