  1. @Alexey Adamitsky I may have solved my issue. I have a Gigabyte Designare Motherboard. It was on Bios f4 and I updated it to f8. There is an f9b but it's in beta. This seemed to improve if not eliminate the problem. It seems like the resize issue is largely gone. But if I keep grabbing the edge and swirl it around for awhile it starts to slow down. But it takes longer for the slow up to occur. And if I pause a sec before swirling the corner again, it's back to normal.
  2. Here is the screenshot of my settings. I too have the window resize issue in Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo. It's odd. Once you start it up, float the window and resize it the movement is smooth. As you continue for a few seconds it gets slower and sloooower until it lags so much that it keeps moving once you let go. There is a bottleneck somewhere. It's almost like a memory cache fills up or something.
  3. @Sean P I've been having the same issues. Please see my posts above.
  4. Here's an odd question for the Nvidia users. Are you all using the Studio drivers or the Geforce Experience drivers? I'm using the latest Studio drivers (452.06). Would using the Geforce Experience drivers make a difference? NOTE: Just swapped out drivers and no effect.
  5. Yet another experiment. I tried to see what the Task Manager said when I just started resizing a window and getting the lag. For the record I DO have AD set to use my graphics card (Geforce GTX 1070) for acceleration. What I see is around 17.4 % CPU usage and 3.6 GPU usage. Shouldn't the GPU usage be higher? I tried the same thing in Illustrator and Photoshop. BOTH got up to 17-20% CPU usage, BUUUUT their GPU usage was MUCH greater than AD. Photoshop GPU usage went from 10-20% GPU usage Illustrator GPU usage was stable around 11% GPU usage. Neither have the window resize issue. I changed the settings in AD to use WARP and it didn't perform any better. CPU usage spiked to 50% and GPU usage went to 20%, but the lag persisted. It's definitely an AD issue. Probably not efficiently using the Nvidia GPUs.
  6. I did a further experiment. I changed the monitor resolution to 1920 x 1080 and tried resizing the window. It starts off fine and then slows as I continue resizing the window. If I pause before trying again, the window again starts off fine but slows as I continue to resize. There is a bottleneck somewhere.
  7. Another odd experiment. When I grab the window from the bottom and resize the whole interface from top to bottom, it's fine. When I grab the window from the right and try to resize right to left, it lags.
  8. Actually, Alexey I'm seeing the exact same thing. I thought it was my drivers but I just updated them and it didn't clear up the issue. Oddly it worked fine after a restart but then started misbehaving again. I'm on Win 10 1909 2560 x 1440 - 100% scaling 32 GB RAM Geforce GTX 1070 I do have a multiple display set up. I don't think it's a video card issue. As when I grab the whole window and move it around, there is no lag. It's just when I resize a window with an open document. Even when it is a blank document I get lag. If I just open the program and DON'T open a document, there is NO lag. Memory leak?
  9. I can confirm that expanding the star and double star shapes are still broken in AD 1.8.
  10. Strokes expand in unexpected ways. I attached an example to show the issue. I've colored the strokes in dark red to illustrate the problem. When I select the strokes and go to "Layers" and choose "Covert to Curves" I get all of these extra loops at the ends. These strokes were copied and pasted from a larger piece of art and they behaved the same way in the new document. New strokes drawn in a New document DO NOT behave the same way. I first noticed this when I created a PDF from a piece of artwork and the strokes were expanded in the process. I attached the PDF as well. I am using Affinity Designer 1.8 - downloaded on 2/27. faun copy.pdf
  11. Hello, I'm using AP 1.6.7 and I've noticed when I attempt to remove the background on an image using the Refine Selection tool it creates artifacts when I output to "New Layer with Mask". The masked layer gets artifacts all around the edges, which are mostly masked out but they poke through. I searched the boards and found this was a known issue with the Mac version in 2016. I was wondering when this will be resolved. Attached are samples showing the artifacts I'm talking about. Image A shows the artifacts. Image B shows how the image is supposed to look.
  12. Hello, I'm impressed with the development so far, but I have a request regarding the document bleed settings. I would really like to see a guideline pop up within the document showing where your bleeds are. It would definitely help me in planning my layouts. and maybe an option to convert lines to guides for if I needed to set up a dieline on a shape that is not rectangular. More print production tools in general would be nice - separation preview to determine percentages of ink coverage, and so on. Thanks
  13. Hey all. Has anyone had this issue? I'm working with Affinity Designer 1.6.1 for Mac (El Capitan - 10.11.6) using a Huion tablet. Sometimes when I draw using pen pressure to create thin/thick lines, the file seems to forget the line thickness after I close and reopen the file. It's happened a few times and I think it's a problem with "pressure profile". The lines end up really skinny and I have to go back through them and reset the pressure profiles to make the lines thicker again. Of course this can be resolved by expanding all of the strokes, but I usually do that AFTER I've digitally inked everything. Thoughts? Suggestions? Anyone with a similar experience? Thanks in advance
