    Pen performance poor

    I've noticed that Affinity Designer sometimes slows down drastically when I'm using a stylus. I'm not talking about drawing in particular; interacting with the UI is even worse. Simple things like locking a layer or selecting a color sometimes take several seconds. Everything suddenly performs as expected when I use the trackpad instead.
  2. Pen latency has been on my mind since the new Surface Pro and iPad Pro were announced. I enjoy drawing in Affinity Designer with the brush tool, and I really like some of the fancier brushes, but the appearance of new lines always lags behind my drawing pretty drastically. When using elaborate brushes, would it be practical for Affinity Designer to draw a plain, unstyled line under the stylus immediately and then draw the fancy brush version over it?
  3. When “Resample” is deselected and you enter your desired DPI, the displayed pixel dimensions change as if you were going to resample. For example, if the image is 200 x 300 at a resolution of 150 dpi, and you enter a resolution of 300 dpi, the pixel dimensions will display as 400 x 600, when they shouldn't change at all. The actual resize operation happens correctly.
  4. Currently, touchscreen navigation in Windows is done with two fingers. But often Affinity mistakes this gesture for a zoom, or worse, a brushstroke. In my experience, most touchscreen-aware applications distinguish between mouse, pen, and finger input, and interpret a single-finger drag as a scrolling action. It would be nice if Affinity could do the same. Or at least combine zooming and panning. Thank you!
  5. Hi everyone! New user here. I've searched the forums and watched several of the tutorial videos but this question doesn't seem to be addressed anywhere yet, so here goes: ​In Illustrator, I hit {Alt, S, M, S} or {Alt, S, M, F} probably about eight billion times a day to select objects in a document by stroke or fill color. I don't see any analogous command anywhere in Affinity Designer. Am I missing something? ​TIA!
