M1 Mac issues

I am new to Substance Designer and I am having some issues with it on my M1 Mac. When I create a new graph and start adding shapes, everything works fine at first. However, as I add more nodes, the Blend-2D view stops updating. If I single-click a node, it does not show the composite of the previous nodes. I have to double-click a node to make any node to show at all.

 

I am not sure if this is a known issue or if I am doing something wrong. Is anyone else having this problem? Is the Mac version of Substance Designer super buggy? 

 

My Mac is an M1 Ultra with macOS Ventura 13.5.2.

You said "If I single-click a node, it does not show the composite of the previous nodes. I have to double-click a node to make any node to show at all."

 

That is not an issue, but the way Substance Designer is designed to work:
Double clicking a node switches both the properties and the 2D view to that node.

Single clicking a node does not change the node output shown in the 2D view but does switch the properties to that newly selected node.

 

That enables you to double click a node (call it B)

That enables you to double click a node (call it B) to see the output from it in 2D view and then single click a different node (call it A) earlier in the chain and adjust the properties of A whilst viewing the resulting output of the chain on node B.
