  1. the second suggestion seems to have worked, thank you! i have my drivers set to have windows ink turned off by default for all programs unless otherwise specified, but apparently needed to add the program manually and turn it off.
  2. good day everyone! hoping to get some insight on a weird behavior i can't seem to figure out. i've tried affinity software off and on for a couple years now and have always seemed to have problems. i decided to bite the bullet and buy the latest release instead of trying the trial once a year to see if the issues subsided. they are still present (very slow, processes remain in memory after program closure, no pressure sensitivity, etc), but i'll deal with those once i get this behavior sorted. i am using a dual monitor set up. affinity photo remains in one window (my primary) and i have no need to break it apart into separate windows. i use an intuos pro tablet instead of a mouse. i use a button on my pen to switch be tween monitors. the problem is this: when i switch to another monitor, or essentially move away from the AP window without focusing on another window, the cursor starts wigging out and cannot center properly in the window, nor behaves properly within the AP canvas. here is a video that sort of demonstrates what is happening: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2Gy0mzxJ-0 once i create a new document, you will see the cursor jump sporadically and flicker at times. this is me navigating to my other monitor and back to this one. i don't know if there's a setting i'm missing, either in wacom or affinity, that is causing this behavior. all drivers are up to date, and this is the only program on my computer that is showing this behavior. any thoughts as to what might be going on?
  3. I'm still having this problem, both with the trial version of photo and with designer. some sleuthing found that having lots of fonts installed slows the start time of the program, and while i am not sure why these are the only programs that struggle to load fonts on startup, i've accepted this as the source of the start up issues. my question is, is this also the reason the programs are so slow to operate once open? i am still quite befuddled that after nearly a year i still can't get the affinity programs to run normally on my machine. some info as requested previously: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit OS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 GPU 16.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 RAM Intel Core i5 3570K Processor
  4. good day affinity folk! i recently gave the trial for affinity photo a try and have been experiencing some massive slow downs right out of the gate. start up of the program appears to take quite a while, i'd estimate 40s to a minute. during that time, my resources seem to be extremely taxed (unresponsive, slow when navigating other windows). when opening a PSD (or just opening the navigator to the PSD) it took nearly four minutes to open the file. first time it happened i rebooted my computer entirely, as my entire computer became unresponsive (could not even pull up task manager to close out program.) when i tried to close the program from the task bar, it said i couldn't since it was in the process of opening a file. anyway, second time i tried, i just waited it out and it finally opened. once open, the program appears to work fine, but it seems like whenever i open it or try to open a file (or even create a new file) there is a massive slow down. i attempted to monitor what might be happening (is my CPU being taxed? is my RAM getting used up?) but even my resource monitor froze ("not responding.") looking at my task manager while i am trying to open a file eventually showed a spike in CPU utilization to about 80% but nothing that seemed to be consistent throughout the slowdown. as far as i can tell, something is making affinity photo misbehave /especially/ when i open a file explorer window through it. unsure what system info you may need, but i am running windows 10 (10.0.15063) and the trial software i am running is vr
