  1. I am having this problem too. However, when I tap the 3-bar menu for a project I only can choose from close, rename, duplicate, and save Oh, I see that "close" is the delete option.... I didn't expect that.
  2. I see, so I no longer need to use the beta. I just use vanilla AD 1.6?
  3. Yes, I was able to download the assets, but now am unable to use the beta file. When I open up AD it says its version 1.6. I cannot use the 1.6 RC1 beta file.
  4. I am on Mac. The preferences fix does not work for me. I deleted and installed the beta file twice. I only see the old welcome screen. I have an affinity store account as I bought the workbook, but the downloads/product keys is greyed out. Any tips? "OK I see now that since I bought this at the App store that the update is there. Sorry. I hope that the free packs come with. Ron" Just tried this and I was able to download the assets. But now I cant open the beta file. It says a purchased copy of Affinity Designer must be installed...

    Lag and slow response

    Thank you for the response. Those are some great tips. I played around with a number of things last night. Turning off snapping helped in some regards. Resetting the software or switching any performance options didn't do much. Hiding layers worked very well. I also duplicated my project and then rastorized it (hiding the objects one). This greatly freed up resources. I also tried the new 1.6 beta build, which better handled everything. However, it still struggled with the heavily manipulated project. I think going forward, my best bet will be to duplicate finished work and rastorize it into a single vector (hiding the original). At least as long as I use my current machine.
  6. Hello, I am new to AFD, and first would like to say that it has been quite enjoyable to use. I also look forward to using it more. However, I have a question about some recent performance while working on a project (attached as file). Now that I am far along in this project, manipulating things or adding new shapes (e.g., ellipses) will be slow and jumpy. The same performance dips happen when moving things around, adding gradients, and duplicating shapes. I have seen the CPU spike up to 300%. Is my machine simply not handling the workload? Is the workload normal? Should I be using other techniques to manage the workload (e.g., convert to raster)? I am new to higher-end graphic work, so I am not sure how to address the performance I am seeing.
