  1. I was about to tell you to de-activate Metal—it slows down performances on 1.7.x— but unfortunately it doesn't seem to be the issue here. Affinity apps use the main processor intensely. CPU is the main performance factor here, more than the GPU. I'm afraid that a 2012 Core i5, with its limited amount of threads, might be in cause.
  2. Now that's exciting news! Looking forward to it.
  3. Update: Following the topic below, I deactivated Metal Compute. Even if my laptop supports it. And the problems are gone. Back to 1.6.x performances.
  4. Same here. I had massive slowdowns since 1.7, and up to 30 seconds freezes on some operations. I turned Metal compute off, and it's all gone. Back to 1.6.x better performances.
  5. Same here. Terrible performance issue on large documents, that I didn't have on 1.6.x. (OSX Mojave, MBPro 2015. Integrated GPU + Metal activated). Moving a group of layers can cause freezes for seconds. Saving a 190Mb document can take up to 10 minutes. I can't currently use it for production. Unfortunately I have to revert to 1.6.x
  6. Photo 1.7 on Desktop is also slower. I get important lags on large illustrations, that I didn't have on 1.6.x.
  7. Thx Limas. They're not on the wall—yet! It's in the making.
  8. Appreciate your feedbacks. I'll keep posting. I have a couple of making-of's that it might be interesting to share with the community. Any idea how to embed a video in a post—instead of a link to a third-party?
  9. The Save History with Document is a brilliant function, that allows to screencast and build clean making-ofs. I noticed though that there's a cap around the hundreds or so; the first steps in the list disappear progressively. On purpose?
  10. NIce one. I think you could get a better zoom-out animation, centered on your character, by going Z then ALT-click. Or even Z and drag-right.
  11. Following up with some excerpts of my collage work. It might be more abstract than the rest of this thread I'm afraid. Glad to share here. This one is enroute to screenprinting. P.
  12. Hi guys, Illustration from a summer screenprint serie. Half Affinity Designer, half Photo. The capture was made afterward, rolling the saved history backward (neat function!). Best, P. > Video Making-of Final
  13. Action: ⌥+Drag to duplicate an object, then ⌘+Z to cancel. Result: Two layers duplicated in place. Expected: Only the original layer remains.
