I love Affinity products and have been a huge advocate of the suite trying to coax anybody to switch. But as of late I have been experiencing the most disappointing and frustrating lag when using Publisher.
Although it's two years old, I have an above average computer that is constantly freezing and lagging only while I'm in Publisher. I've included screen shots of computer data as well as activity monitoring but to list the scenario:
MacBook Pro 2018, Quad Core i5, 16 GB Ram
Activity Monitor Peak: CPU % 320
Project: 18 Master Slides, <400 hyperlinks total, Tables, Text Boxes, Shapes. There are no photos, no embedded items. File Size - 1.4 MB Total.
What the lag looks like: Spinning beach ball while trying to type a FOUR letter word on the attached page (21 hyperlinks).
Note: I've even deleted most all of the hyperlinks (less than 40) and I am still experiencing lag and freezing.
