  1. I attach you a video of the behaviour. I reboot the Mac and relaunch the apps. The unique thing I have not done is to reset the apps. Is so tedious to configure all menus and tools again.

    I'm using MAS version for Designer, Photo and Affinity installer for Publisher.

    With 1.8.4 beta versions happens the same.


    UPDATE: I tried to clear all user data of the 3 apps and still same problem.



  2. Sorry guys for the late replay.


    Disabling everything you mention before doesn't change anything.

    I have found 2 things.

    Everything that needs a live preview of changes like, font selection, color selection from wheel, text changing, ... decreases considerately the performance with big documents.

    I have recoded 2 videos:

    • 1 of them showing how much time takes the action of manipulate fonts.
    • 2 video showing how copying and paste an object works relatively fine but copying the same object using option key (I think due the live preview of it) takes much more time.

    Also I have attach a capture of the activity monitor showing the great amount of resources Affinity takes only with those kind of modifications. Another ones like vector lines, object movements, ... shows a normal Activity with the software.


    Finally I can tell you that this only happens with big documents, even set with linked images and 72 dpi's, with small documents everything works fast and fine.

  3. After work 2 weeks with that large document (220 pages, 72 dpi and linked images) I have notice that the big lag of performance appears when I work with fonts (text).

    For example, I can copy, paste , move, objects and every time I can see the beach ball about 3 seconds until the system refresh. No problem with this.

    When I edit, change, modify or similar any text, the beach ball takes around 20 seconds every modification I do.

    Another example, if I select a text and I select directly from the panel a text style it takes around 3 seconds to refresh but if I select the same text and I go to the fonts menu trying to select any of them it takes around 20 seconds to refresh. Also if I don't select the fonts list (that maybe it has to preview), just changing bold, light, or the font size. 

    Hope this could help to improve a GREAT app even more.


  4. Hi,

    Following thomaso advices I expose my results:

    1. The document resolution has changed to 72 dpi. (Still same performance)
    2. All images are linked.
    3. All images are store locally.
    4. Only this document is opened.
    5. Only publisher is opened. Any other app.
    6. I tried changing the API from Metal to OpenGL with same results.

    When I open the document the fan inside my Mac starts running and the Activity monitor shows this


    In the moment I closed the 222 pages document everything goes to normal and fans becomes off.

    Could be the optimization of macOS Catalina. Actually I'm using beta 5.

  5.    Hi guys,

    Actually I’m working on a manual that has 222 pages. My Mac is a MacBook PRO 15” Late 2013.

    It is A4, 800 dpi (I need people can do zooming without lose resolution) and the 15  images it has are all embedded , sorry, linked. The rest of items inside are 100% vectors with effects, like shadows, transparency, etc...

    Metal is enabled.

    I have extrematelly low performance in the document. When I do a change I have to wait about 30 seconds seeing the beach ball running until it is applied.

    What can I do?

    My language is French. Sorry for my bad English and if I didn't understand your question :

    Mine is Spanish so I'm in the same situation jeje...

    I think I understand the procedure. "Framon" you are right. First you have to manage the format you want at every cell. Text, fonts, position, fill, etc... after this you have to select which format you want to be applied to every cell. "See the image".

    The final result is that the table will respect the format you applied at every cell to make the composition. See video.

    Possibilities has no limits as in the text style edition field you can select many adjustments for just the text inside every cell.

    UPDATE: The unique thing I can't find is how to export the format you have created. As you do with your Assets or Styles. Every document starts with the default table format.
