  1. Hey @GabrielM Don't worry, here is a file that I'm able to reproduce the problem everytime, all you have to do is try to copy the layer that says "COPY THIS". Something that might be important is the fact that this project was originally imported from Illustrator and this layer's effects were converted from that. Test File - Copying Problem.afdesign
  2. Update: Seems to do it when I'm copying a group with a masked object inside of it, it happens every single time I try to copy it. Thankfully it unfreezes and I can continue but it's quite annoying.
  3. Hello, Just wanted to report the following bug: Sometimes when I try to copy something the progam hangs and stay in Not Responding state. The last time it happened was copying while selecting two objects from the layers panel. While this last time it eventually got unstuck, it took around a minute or two to do so. This problem is not EVERY time I try to copy/paste something but sometimes, frequent enough to be annoying and sometimes I just have to force quit it (thankfully haven't lost my progress, it always seems to be able to recover which is good). I took screenshots to illustrate the problem, you can see the tools being stretched (I use them non-docked) while this is happening.
  4. Hello everyone, Just wanted to suggest that it may be a good idea to make a better recent document list/screen. A recent document section could be added to the already made welcome window. At the very least let the "Open Recent" list be longer than just 10 documents, I work with lots and lots of different documents in a single day so that would greatly help. I mostly use Designer but if it's implemented into the whole suite that would be fantastic. Thanks and keep up the good work!

    Yes please! I would love this too.
  6. Good news! I found out why it was taking so long to load, it's very simple, I just had too many installed fonts (2000+ !!). Something about the way Affinity handles fonts at load makes it take a long time. Illustrator didn't do this with the same amount of fonts so there's probably a way around it. Fix: Uninstalled all non-system fonts and installed a Font Manager which activates any of the previous fonts I had only when I want them to.
  7. Hello everyone, I'm having an issue where both Affinity Designer and Photo stay at "Not Responding" for about 3 minutes when starting up the program and THEN it opens fully. Basically it is super slow to open. This is a clean install as I just bought the software and there's nothing else running on the PC and the PC is still new and running well so it's clearly a problem with the software. I already tried changing the performance options (Renderer to the dedicated GPU instead of the iGPU which is the default for some reason. Also tried WARP). As for how well the program runs once it opens it's, meh, it runs jerky, zoom animations are slow and panning is super slow (This is NOT 60fps as advertised, more like 5fps) BUT if I use the touchscreen it works quite well, much better than the touchpad. I tried the software on a Mac and it was amazing but on Windows it kinda sucks so far. My Specs are: Windows 10 Home (1903 / 18362.145) Intel i7-8550U RAM 16GB iGPU: Intel UHD Graphics 620 dGPU: Nvidia MX150 EDIT: It appears that panning and zoom have improved somewhat! But sadly it still takes super long to start and still says "Not responding".
