  1. Hi Jon, I uploaded the file, it's called: Topic_107979_huge_delay_23032020_CvV.afpub Thanks.
  2. I have been working today on a Publisher file, and entering or adjusting text is still a bit slow. The document is 200 pages, with only on the right side text frames, which are not linked, so the text doesn't has to reflow. What I noticed, is that placing the cursor in the text frame is immediatly visible (the hyphen), but typing a few characters takes some moments to process. Also, when you then use the scrollbars to move the page, or use the scrollbar on the left of the pages panel, there is also a hickup/freeze.
  3. Downloaded the latest version that's now available (1.8.2.620) and the speed is now much better when inserting or duplicating pages. Although the program is still not super responsive when you want to edit text, you can place the cursor and start typing but then have to wait to see your text appear.

  5. The new beta (1.8.2.619) is a lot faster! At least it makes it workable now 😀
  6. This is much better! Now around 4 seconds, CPU peaks 1 sec. at 88%. Program still has difficulties when editing text on the page, and you then want to scroll the pages view on the left. There is a 1 to 2 seconds no respons on the scrollbar.
  7. Downloaded the beta (1.8.2.603) and it's a bit better. Duplicating a spread now takes between 2:30 and 3 minutes. My NVidia GTX 1060 6Gb can handle realtime rendering in Blender, but duplicating 2 almost empty pages in 2D is the real challenge... 😞
  8. That would be interesting to test! Can I download the beta via the account I have with Affinity? Can I run it alongside my currently installed 1.8 version?
  9. I have uploaded my .afpub file in this similar topic: /108569-moving-and-inserting-pages-takes-ages-or-locks-up-publisher/ I hope you can fix this problem. You need lots of patience while testing!
  10. Thanks Pauls for such a quick reply. I have uploaded the file, it's called: topic_108569_publisher_slows_down_inserting_pages
  11. I have a similar problem. I'm working on a book with 200 pages, only 15 photo's (linked) the rest is text (and just on the right page, no full page based connecting columns). Duplicating 2 text pages takes 3 to 4 minutes! CPU usage goes to 97%, memory goes from 40% to 95% (also 16GB RAM). Most of the times it doesn't hang, but to have to wait several minutes just by duplicating a spread is unworkable. After the duplication, CPU goes back to 0,1% and RAM to around 20% when I'm not using the computer (moving the mouse or scrolling the document). I have tried several things. And found that: A. Don't link Affinity Photo files in your Publisher document. I now export my Affinity Photo documents to TIFF files and import them into Publisher. The file size went from 120Mb to just 7MB. No more the advantage of editing your Photo files directly in Publisher B. Don't use images. Yes, this is bizarre, but upon testing I found that images are the main reason the whole process slows down. I now have a text only document, and duplicating a spread now takes 10 seconds. I'll be adding all the images at the end of the total process. It's absolutely not what I want, but otherwise there is no way you can work 'quickly' with a document. I was hopig a speed increase would make version 1.8 better than <1.7, but alas, it has gotten far worse actually. For a future update I am not interested in any new feature, I need a speed gain of 240%, so that adding 1 page takes 1 second.
