    Thank you. I will see if that is able to grab the display. 

    I split my window and the task manager shows a GPU spike to 80% and on the low end 50% while typing. It hovers around 60 to 75% GPU while typing but drops down when I'm done. The CPU goes up to about 10% when typing so I doubt it is that. This is kind of confusing. 

  2. Dell Update and Windows Update both show no graphics driver updates, and slow typing doesn't happen with any other program on my system. 

    No the Harddrive isn't very active. It always looks like a GPU thing. Here I show that the minimized Designer is using the GPU with no file opened, and Publisher is still VERY slow with typing in that file.

    What free software do you know of that I may be able to try and record besides OBS if that will help?

    Do you have an image or graphic with a complicated text wrap outline - A sample document would let us quickly investigate

    Text fields and two tables. I was mocking up a simple invoice to learn Publisher. The delay is apparent when editing the Master and much worse when editing the actual pages. I attached the file. The problems persist between computer reboots and also program reboots. This is version of Publisher. Thank you.  


  4. Hello. I searched for delayed typing and couldn't see any other postings in 3 pages. 

    I'm just starting to learn Publisher and I noticed that when I type there is a large delay in the text coming out and I can't record with OBS to show. I have to type and wait for the letters to display for about 3 to 5 seconds after I type them. I only have been doing a few words at a time with the delay and it is severely slowing me down. My document isn't complicated and I only have a single image. 

    I have to wait about five seconds for this to finish typing itself out: "This sentence takes about five seconds to fill in after I stop typing." 

    I noticed that Publisher and Photo use a very large percent of CPU even when they were both minimized and hadn't been used in a few minutes, and Publisher was the same once when I had it open but wasn't interacting with it. I should have plenty of horsepower, and haven't installed any fonts yet. Thank you for your help.

    Strangely enough I just tried to expand stroke on the original group in that file. It produced what appeared to be accurate results. I captured it on video and the result was within the first 12-18 seconds... the menu is hidden in the overlay, I am using Windows Game recorder... I tried a few more times


    I tried on a simple circle on a document of 640 x 640 and can still see the inaccuracies. This is zoomed in to see the lower magenta layer peeking out from inaccuracies when you couldn't see it before expanding the stroke with Designer updated to I didn't get a chance to try the file provided, but wanted to try the resolution trick myself.

    Still great software.

    Hi @CJ Randolph, while the scale does make things a little better it is still most certainly not pixel perfect. As you can see in the attached image, which is a 640px x 640px canvas, the red expanded stroke does not line up perfectly with the black original stroke below it. There's seems to be a fundamental issue with the way the software goes about converting strokes to fills.

    I don't want to make icons that are blurry so pixel perfect accuracy is a must. They do market for icons and pixel perfect accuracy so this is still disappointing.


    The suite is meant to work together from what I understand, and I don't want/need to depend another program to do this (Inkscape, etc).

    Don't hold your breath for this fix @debraspicher. This issue was reported over 2 years ago and there's no sign of it being even considered let alone fixed. All I've heard since I reported it is a message like this from the moderators saying that it's a known issue and that it's been passed on to the dev team. 


    I just got a similar thing I believe with  it being inaccurate. Some points are made correctly some are changed to points that don't match the shape. The tips of my paths aren't expanding and matching the shape with curves. What are you guys doing to work around this or should I refund my purchase? 2 years is quite a long time for a bug.
