Ditto on the CPU cycles.
Sitting still, doing exactly nothing, just existing in the background, AP is using between 7.8 - 8.5% of the CPU. When I move the cursor around (literally, JUST the cursor), CPU usage jumps to around 25+%, sometimes even going over 30%.
And when I try to do any actual work.., ha ha! What a joke. My fans fire up and things start to grind.
It's time for some efficiency code-combing, I think. (Or responsibility deflection; "It's supposed to do that. Overheating and Fan Noise are features, not bugs!" Ha ha.)
Still.., AP is great for text layouts, (with enough internet research, I figured out how to flow text around objects, which it does very well, better than PS, -and yes, it's a valid ask of the program for my style of comics art), but due to these performance issues, it appears that I can't cancel my Adobe subscription just yet. AP is not ready for prime time.
Whatever. You can have my $69 and I'm happy to see the otherwise excellent progress. I'll keep an eye on y'all while you grow. ClipStudio Paint was a buggy POS for a long time as well.
Oh! And Paint Tool Sai 2 is coming out soon with touch navigation. That's going to be awesome! Nobody does brush mechanics like Sai!
