  1. Brand new Mac Mini M1. Very first thing I installed was the three Affinity apps I purchased from the App Store. Once installed, upon launch, I noticed a very long delay before the app appeared. I closed and relaunched and launch time was normal (2-3 seconds). I rebooted and launched again. On the first launch, each of the apps takes 17 seconds to launch. Tested again and again with same results, each time rebooting and then launching apps. I then compared launch time of the same App Store apps on my Intel Mac. 4 seconds, consistently for all the apps. Someone on another forum
  2. Designer and Publisher (apparently not Photo) launches slowly since MacOS Big Sur 11.1 (i.e. 45 dock icon bumps) in its first launch after Mac reset or after a while closed (versus 4 icon bumps when recently launched). Why?, is it normal?, is OS guilty or the app?, Apple Silicon Macs will solve it? Emilio
  3. I'm using the last version of all three Affinity apps from the Mac App store and often I'm running them in the background with windows closed. I have noticed that they are sometimes not responding and I have to force close them and start them again which takes some time on my MacBook Air 2017. Upon some investigation, I have discovered that that happens only if I have restarted my laptop between launching any of Affinity apps and only if restart occurred with any of the apps were running in the background when initiating restart. In the last test, I have waited to see what will happen if I don
  4. The app is still taking a long time to open the first time (each time I log onto my computer). Support said it was being fixed but so far it's still the same. Anyone have news on this?
  5. Just updated OS on iMac to Big Sur public beta. The computer is a iMac 2018 Intel i5 processor. Trying to load Affinity Design or Photo causing a lengthy about of time to finally open. Is this a current issue? Would appreciate any feedback that I can get on this topic. Thanks
  6. As some have noticed as I too, that the non beta version (latest version) is about 6 times slower as the Beta when started up for the first time. So the future will be fast! I know it might be not the right place but I would like to compliment you with this remarkable software. I'm liking it more and more, also thanks for the YouTube movies. Regards, Jos
  7. Hi, since updating MacOS from Mojave to Big Sur, Publisher takes a very long time to run, around 30 sec. (!!!) ❌ Previously, Publisher started up almost immediately. My Hardware - iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2019) Intel Core i9 8-core 3.6GHz, 64GB 2667MHz DDR4, SSD Any idea? Thx
  8. Hi After booting up my mac I then click on any of the affinity programs and they take almost a minute to open. If I the close the program and click to open again it opens really quick. any ideas on how to fix this? latest versions of affinity software and using Big Sur
  9. Since MacOs Big Sur Affinity Designer Performance Decreased Drastically. When Ever I Open Your App In Mac OS Catalina It Takes Around 5 To 10 Jumps in dock But In Big Sur It is taking around 35 to 40 Jumps to Open Your App. ( Note: Jumps means when I click the app icon in dock I thin you got it ) and also system hangs when using the app. I Think You Solve This Performance Issue in Next Update. Thank You ( I have Purchased you software in App Store )
