  1. Hi Fernando, what you can do is to use low res images and delete those you don't use .. just for the "designing" phase .. at the end you can replace them with high resolution versions. This is what I did yesterday and seems I can live with it for a while. I wish I could find some better walkaround this problem .. Andrej
  2. Actually I know pretty much about GPU and acceleration. Affinity definitely use in some way a GPU acceleration otherwise the app would be crazy slow compared how responsive otherwise is. What I was thinking all the time is that it looks like the texture uploading problem or something with LOD system that could have something to do with AMD drivers. My GPU have 8GB of VRAM .. so I cannot believe that id could not fit what I use .. so probably not the case. The Warp setting just made the rendering slow and the lag was still there. It's definitely related to the images put into docu
  3. Hi, this is freezing that happens to me from the times it was a beta. Everything works smooth but as the complexity of the document is going up the nonobvious lagging starts to appear .. now lags takes around 30s .. it feels like it happens randomly. This freezing forced me to look for a solution or walkaround how I can live with this problem until it will be maybe some day fixed or reduced. I started to use shapshots and it made things a lot worse. I also have an AMD R9 card .. It lags in average every few minutes sometimes even few seconds and it takes up to 30s now .. so y
  4. Hello everybody, I have the same problem as all guys above .. this is making the whole app unusable I can barely do anything. It's related to the complexity of the document. The more objects or unique big images the worse. Looks like something is updating but it's totally not obvious what it is. I tried to mess up with performance settings a little bit but no change. I am using version on Windows 10 .. I have AMD GPU R9 390 it have 8GB of VRAM. Newest drivers and updates .. I have this problems from the times it was just a beta .. This is purchased current version. I
  5. Hello, I have been waiting for this update since the last update. I was hoping that the issues that I have will be fixed. I don't know where in your priority list are these problems but I would really wonder if they would be too low. Do you plan to fix the Symbols feature ? (this thing is broken really really bad) I still have this long lags (up to 10 second freeze) that happens all the time with no obvious reasons or actions. Like every few minutes irregularly starting something .. it could be anything from scrolling, zooming, selecting to transforming objects .. It's soo an
  6. Hello everybody, Using just PNG or GIF might seems as easy and OK option but if you want BEST results you need to have separate image for each scale of the icon, since in some cases the icons are very small and you really have to craft those image on the pixel level to make them crisp and clean. You cannot just resample the same image, that way you can get pretty blurry or aliased icons. So the ICO is the must if you are concerned about best results. I hope Affinity will get this feature soon, so we can export everything in the batch without having some special custom steps in prod
  7. Thank you, at least i have and idea what is going on. Hope you guys will fix it soon. I think 'Symbols' or referencing/instancing parts is super useful feature and I use it a lot. If I would not have it I would have to change my logo like 20 times every-time I want to tweak something .. Good Luck !
  8. Hi everybody, this is the bug that I reported for BETA but it is still present it the RELEASE version. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/26808-bug-15026-rc-symbols-in-symbols/ The weird thing is that I remembered the bug to be fixed in build 32 .. but it's back in 36. This thing is holding me back since I use symbols a lot in my project and I am afraid to work with it since it's too easy to break up the symbols in the document. I was just curious if you guys are working on it and if I can expect some update in the near future ? Thanks. Andrej
  9. Purchased ! .. however I am wondering that you released it .. it's not really bug free yet. I still have both most annoying bugs that I have and also I didn't used it much since I realized It's broken inside the symbols code ... I didn't wanted to risk loosing or damaging my work. From what I have seen in the above comments it looks like I will get free updates until V2 .. so that's great .. fix me If I am wrong. I hope you fix the symbols feature soon so I can continue working on my document. Also I have this weird random lags .. I think It have to to something with my scene
  10. Hi Everybody. I use current latest Affinity Designer BETA for Windows I use symbols a lot and consider them as a very important KEY FEATURE. Since I like to have this flexibility so I can change elements and all instances updates accordingly. I often use symbols in symbols in symbols :) .. and it seems buggy. Simply sometimes when I add a new symbol instance into another symbol instance while sync on, the symbol doesn't show on other instances. I found a hack to fix that by duplicating the symbol and detaching the old one and deleting it. The duplicated symbol show up
