  1. Thanks
    Mark Ingram reacted to R C-R in Huge file size   
    Nope. As @walt.farrell mentioned in a reply in one of the other topics, that huge increase in file size is caused by saving a jpeg original (which uses lossy compression to significantly reduce file size at the expense of discarding a lot of detail) in the native Affinity file format, which among other things doesn't use lossy compression.
    Following the trail of links eventually takes one to this followup post by @Mark Ingram which should clear up any confusion about that.
    The format isn't designed just for rapid loading. It is also designed so that just the currently needed parts of files can be quickly & efficiently loaded into memory (similar I suspect to how database apps do not need to load an entire database into memory or sequentially read through the entire file to access a single record). This in turn contributes to unusually high memory efficiency, which among other things means fewer performance robbing swaps with VM & the capability of working on huge raster images without having to rely on dedicated scratch disks.
    Besides, it isn't just about reducing load (or save) times. It is all part of the effort to optimize the Affinity apps to be as responsive as possible while documents are being edited.

    Mark Ingram got a reaction from Granddaddy in Preferences window UI is frustratingly designed   
    OK, we've intentionally not included the list of keyboard shortcuts in the search (as there's so many it could make it difficult to find the preferences page you wanted), we could potentially look at adding this to the search results as well.
