  1. I'm writing an RPG and I wanted to find a better way of styling the following paragraphs. Right now I have 1 Text Area for each Attribute, with 2 columns: 1 column for the image, and the other for the paragraph. Before that I was using tables, but found they were lacking control about the spacing between each paragraph. Is there a better way to achieve this?
  2. I think the problem was related of my ToC creating Anchors for all the Paragraphs in the Document, which might have been too many for Affinity Publisher to handle when exporting. I removed those Anchors and I can export now even with Bookmarks included.
  3. When exporting, or even just exporting with "Include Bookmarks" crashes Affinity Publisher while "Calculating", as well as when the Export process is about to finish. "Include Hyperlink" works. Crash dump is attached. For a copy of the file that causes the crash please provide me a dropbox URL. ead267bb-0915-4ba5-9f19-b0420c684df7.dmp
  4. Can you edit a saved package? I tried editing the .afpackage, it will show [Modified] but "Save" is greyed-out.
  5. When changing Tools there is a small spike (~10%) in CPU and GPU activity, but that is to be expected. I've tried the following, but that did not help: Disable Snapping Disable Text Style Preview Opening a new document using Ctrl+N (what I'm I supposed to do here; create a new document and load my current document?) Creating a new document, closing the work document, and loading it doesn't help Seems like, this performance degradation applies to APu globally. Only restarting seems to help. Close the Asset Panel What I've been doing before this issue occured: Searched for a text, and manually replaced ~6 occurences, each in a different Text Area Added 2 new pages Added some text to the newly created pages Moved a table from an existing Text Area to the new page (Since I've had troubles with tables in older versions before, this is what suspect the most) Locked my PC around 5 times APu was open for at least 2 hours I'll reply with more tests later
  6. I'll try to investigate further and narrow down the origin of the problem.
  7. @Gabe I will try to reproduce it in a new document. Is there some developer snapshot I could use that has extended logging or something similar so I can help you provide more information? EDIT: I think you actively have to use APu in order for the performance to degrade. Just having it open is apparently not enough. If you keep changing the focus of text areas, tables, and switch back and forth from the Move Tool, Text Area Tool and Table Tool, the performance gets worse and worse. Interestingly this doesn't seem to be a linear degradation, but affected by certain actions only.
  8. @Gabe Uploaded a file and also a screen record. Here's a summary of what the issue is or how it occurs (once it can occur). Click on Text Area with Text Area Tool Click outside of the Text Area. Change Tool to Move Tool Click the Text Area HANGS for 1-2 seconds. Generally speaking, changing Tools and clicking a Text Area has huge perfomance problems. But as I said, this only happens when Affinity Publisher is open for a while.
  9. @Gabe Thanks for getting back to me! Well it only occurs after ~2 hours of working with the document. The more I edit tables, text areas, etc. the slower it gets. Last time I worked on my document for about 3 hours, and clicking took >1 second to actually focus the object I was clicking on. I can still attach my document, if you send me a dropbox link, but I don't think you'll find that there's something wrong with the document. As I said, it looks like there is some kind of memory leak that degrades performance.
  10. The document I work on is pretty small (~25 pages). I've noticed, that the performance gets worse and worse the longer I work on it. If I re-open Publisher, the performance is normal again. The performance issues I'm experiencing include: Focusing another Text Area takes more and more time When a Paragraph flows to an attached Text Area, it takes more and more time for the view to update. I.e. the paragraph is basically shown on both Text Areas. After some time the Paragraph disappears from the first Text Area. Typing responsiveness gets worse and worse. I've noticed before, that if the History Pane is open and active (i.e. you can see the History entries) the performance drops a lot, especially if there is a longer History Log. Maybe this is related to the History Log filling up?
  11. For some reason, whenever I type something, the Spelling is always in German, although in the Preferences and the Text Frame I've selected English - US. Is there a default I can change somehow? My Windows is in english too, only the keyboard's language (in windows) is set to German. Also, is there a quick way of changing the Spelling of the whole document to another language (without having to go through each page and table)?
  12. Thanks for the response. I uploaded the file to dropbox. I tried with the latest stable, and the latest beta (549 I believe), on two different PCs and the file I attached just freezes everything. The only thing I got it to work is creating a copy of the file; open the original file, then open the copy. The copy is super slow, but it doesn't freeze. The freeze also seems to be related with either the "text-inlined" tables, or the text frames themselves. As soon as I rescale one of the text frames, provided the file didn't freeze on startup, publisher freezes again. If you need more information let me know.
  13. I have a normal sized file (30 pages), but whenever I open it now, publisher either freezes or is otherwise not responding anymore (i.e. it doesn't freeze, but you can't do anything anymore). There are no crash logs generated. Version is I cannot upload this file here, but I can send it via PM.
