    Affinity Designer - High CPU Usage When Idle

    Hi Mark, I have attached two videos: i) High CPU tabbing - I paused clicking through the tabs to show that you really do have to click all of them. Each tab is consuming like 10% cpu until it gets focus. ii) Steps to replicate - this one I launch affinity and load 10 copies of the attached afdesign file. Affinity pegs the cpu as soon as I select something. This is 100% replicable. Notes a) it seems to happen on focus changes e.g. app switching, virtual desktop switching etc. as soon as affinity gets focus - boom - it's off until you focus each tab. b) I also notice that when I focus a tab, affinity often pans zoomed in documents to a corner. It may be a separate bug but it's part of the oddities happening when affinity gets focus. System specs: OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Home Version 10.0.17134 Build 17134 Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 24.0 GB Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770K CPU @ 3.50GHz, 3901 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s) Name NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti Anything else? high-cpu-tabbing.xesc asset - font-awesome.afdesign steps to replicae.xesc

    Affinity Designer - High CPU Usage When Idle

    For the love of all that is good - when will you fix this bug please? I am working projects that sound similar to others - lots of text at different zoom levels. I also find the "tab through each project" fix brings the cpu down but it's driving me nuts to have to keep doing that. Are you still having problems replicating it?

    Bad quality png export

    Hi, There are serious problems with the png export quality. Please find the source svg and a 512x512 png of the selection exported in both inkscape and Affinity 1. Here is a close-up of the issue. Affinity has a bug exporting curved shapes. I have seen similar examples on this forum dismissed as "fine". It really isn't and is not an unavoidable consequence of rasterisation. It happens at high resolutions, doesn't happen in other tools and isn't fit for production use. 2. Affinity is also adding a border thanks. example.svg
