  1. Hi Sean, Thanks for your reply. I try to list the infos below: I use 2 monitors. - Asus ROG PG278QR (main monitor), 165Hz - Asus PB278, 60Hz both on 2560 x 1440 GPU-Driver: 461.40 (Game Ready)
  2. Hello everyone Is there are a known issue with the Affinity Apps (namely Designer and Photo) that they behave laggy/sluggish since a recent update? I use them on a regular basis since years, but "lately" (I think a couple of months, not sure) they are very laggy when dragging or scrolling a canvas and it even influences other apps (like Spotify(Native App)/Youtube (Browser) where the music hickups when I scroll/pan around). I never had that issue before, not on this system and not the older one with less performance. Edit: I just realized that it's even enough to trigger if I focus the Affinity Designer window or moving the mouse over it (like the hickups in Spotify/Youtube). If it's open in the background there's no hickups. My system: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 (AM4, 3.60GHz, 6-Core) 32GB, DDR4-3600, DIMM 288 MSI GeForce RTX 2070S GAMING X TRIO (8GB) Windows 10
  3. Same for me. It's very frustrating and makes my work very cumbersome.
  4. No worries, I do have a (simpler) workaround for my case, but just wanted to report it, as it isn't very intuitive for the user. in my opinion anway. Thanks for your help and the bump. PS: this forum needs a 'thumb up' emoticon.
  5. I have the following setup: pixel persona: one layer with a background color (here: blue). above a layer with a white background and a hole in the middle (to show the blue background). now I take the mask tool select an area left side, press V and resize it over the whole. now on the left side it creates a blue 'line' (having a new partially transparent area). this is also in Affinity Photo, btw.

  6. You're my hero. Thanks. :-) The mean thing was that I had my pressure profile on an even level, so it wasn't obvious. (I have no clue how you get onto that. Kudos! :D)
  7. Can someone explain me why the dashed line doesn't work here?
  8. Hi @GabrielM Thanks for your answer. Unfortunately I didn't have saved the history with the document. And I can't replicate the crash on a consistent basis, but it occured to me more than once. (also sent the report (via in-application prompt) to you guys. If that's any help. But what I - and you - can replicate is the bug(?) that symbols are not affected by snapshots, as in my opinion it should be a global 'reset' when I go back to an old snapshot, including all elments (like symbols). You can easily try yourself by making a rectangle, make a symbol, make snapshot, change color, make another snapshot and go back to the first snapshot. the color will still be the same as you set it on the second snapshot. Also, I submitted the file anyway, even though it probably wont be of any help to you. Please keep it confidential as there is some sensitive data in it. Thank you.
  9. Hej affinitos I have the following problem: I was working on some business cards for a client. There I use symbols to make fancy mockups (so when I change something on the card, it also shows on the mockup). Now to save the different variants I'm making for the costumer I wanted to use the snapshot function. When I finished my draft variants I wanted to go through them all just to get shocked that all snapshots had the same state (the last one). Now I thought: Well, let's use the history function and go back to all/some old variants. But now when I use the history function after a certain point AD crashes and now I can't restore my work. Which are quite a few hours of work. Here's the error message I get after the history rollback attempt: Any ideas? Thanks in advance Jay
  10. Unfortunate, but thanks a lot, GabrielM. Looking forward for that improvement. Especially to get on par with the desktop version, it makes sense.
  11. Hello everyone I was looking for a way to change the background color of the UI. I found the option in the settings (under Interface) but this seems to get overwritten once I use artboards. Or am I missing something? It's really unpractical for me, as I'm working with a background on the artboards that is very similar to that light grey. Besides that it's very....bright like that. And on the desktop version the backgrounds with or without artboards are treated the same (which is great!). Any clues how to solve that? Thank you all.
  12. Hi Sean, ah lovely. You got that already covered.
  13. I'm messing a little around with the new beta and found this weird behavior: When I pull out an asset on the canvas the canvas automatically zooms to 'fit to screen'. See vid in the attachements. Edit: (adding the version/os): Affinity Designer beta ( for Windows. assets_bug.wmv
  14. Hi Vitaly, Thanks for sharing your work with us. It's a pleasure to view and it has a lot of improvments I want for Affinity Designer. (like the better highlighting of selected tools, etc..) From an aesthetical point of view it's fantastic and very pleasing to the eye. Although if you consider accessiblity and readability it's a tough one. The contrast is way too low and if people have a little eyesight issues, it's not viable, in my opinion. (I know, us UI/UX-designers have a hard time finding the balance between aesthetics and accessibility as it often compete with each other .) But as I said: Great work Vitaly! And I love your icon set, they are super crisp and look great! Hope to see more of your work.
  15. Thank you MEB and A_B_C. much appreciated! The 'middle alignment' argument makes totally sense. Now I tried to apply this to the button in my example and the horizontal lines are indeed crisp as they should be. but unfortunately the vertical ones are now blurry. Any clues why (the dimensions and positions are on full pixels)? Edit: Here is another example. This time it's again the horizontal line (bottom border) that is blurry. (and to a certain degree the right vertical one as well)
