I have been using Affinity Designer for several months, but recently, out of the blue, it lost all the familiar smoothness and snappiness I've come to expect from Affinity. I tried restarting the program and then factory resetting the program. After still experiencing issues, I uninstalled and reinstalled the program. No sign of change. I uninstalled all my fonts, due to a suggestion on the forums. Nothing worked. I then uninstalled and install a previous version of Affinity Designer, and still didn't see any improvement. Although I haven't had any crashing or tools break, it's uncomfortable to use the application. I then switched to trying to use Affinity Publisher and Photo, but unfortunately, those programs are mysterious behaving exactly like Designer. Lag, screen tearing, slow loading times, and rendering failure.

Hi, I was working on someting simple when the updates came through today and after applying the update and opening the same files I was working on in AD again I noticed straight away a performance issue I had not seen before. The update felt a lot worse than my experience with AD since the start. I've attached a screen recording which show the difference clearly. I have two identical groups, the have a layer [same in each group] with fx applied to it. When the layer with the fx is turned off, the performance is fine, dragging the group around is smooth enough. When I do turn on the layer with the fx the performance is basically non-workable for me. You'll notice it in the video. The fx layer isn't antyhing heavy, just a bevel as a test, I've attached a screenshot of the fx. I've also attached the actual file if anyone would like to try. Also attached a screenshot of the peformance settings in the app preferences.

I have this big drawing with many objects and many with FX (mostly slight blur, rarely above 1 pixel, never 2). When I zoom in on a tiny area to adjust some nodes then performance is degraded dramatically? Dragging the nodes lag. I zoom out. The nodes are moved without issues. It doesn't make much sense. Quite humble old laptop with i5 processor and a simple Intel HD 3000 that otherwise runs Designer smoothly.
