  1. I have a MBP 13" mid 2009 with 8GB RAM running OSX El Capitan, and I can't use Affinity Design 1.3.5 because each 5 seconds the cursor turns in Spinning Wait Cursor. Then I can't do anything in this program. I believe that AD can be a Illustrator Killer... but I can't understand why too low in my machine. I trying to resolve duplicate fonts ( I see this tip in another topic ). But not work for me. Any Help ?!
  2. I’m using Affinity Designer and tried importing the Whiteframes file from https://www.google.com/design/spec/resources/layout-templates.html#layout-templates-mobile. It is a ~15 MiB Adobe Illustrator Document. Upon importing that into AD, the program hangs for seconds on end during import and rendering of the document. Eventually, I get a low-res version, then it hangs again until I either Force Quit the app or wait >30s. Moving around in the document is also slow. Brand-new rMBP 13", 16 GiB RAM, OS X 10.10.5.
  3. Hi Guys. My name is Andreas Schmidt from Germany. Who of you used Affinity Photo and Designer on a new MacPro with D300 graphics card? I use the programs Affinity Photo and Desinger on a new MacPro and I must say that's rather poor performance compared to my MacBookPro (2012). It takes more than 40-60 seconds before launch the two programs on the MacPro, on the MacBook just 2 seconds. Even when processing OpenType fonts, the Great is more sluggish compared to the Little ones. Can someone confirm the problem ???? It is a clean and newly installed OS X 10.10.4 with 16GB of memory. Access rights were checked and repaired. Thanks for your help and sorry for the bad english. Best regards from Germany

    Laggy Pan and Zoom

    I have been trying Affinity Designer for about 5 months off and on. I have a Mid-2010 27' 2.93 Core i7 iMac with 12 GB of RAM. I have been using Adobe Illustrator since 1993 and I find your app to be great in every way except in one of the main areas that you tout... Pan and Zoom. For me the performance of panning and zooming has been very laggy - no where near 60fps but more like 5-10fps. I have played around with the performance settings and have re-installed but nothing seems to make any kind of difference. I seem to be in a minority here so any help on this would be appreciated. I would like to commit to the purchase but I am not so sure that my performance will improve by doing so. Illustrator should not be beating you in draw performance here. Thanks
  5. I have always noticed that dragging objects with applied effects (such as something simple like a stroke) lead to poor performance in Affinity Designer, particularly low frame rates and refresh rates. Since upgrading to Yosemite, however, these issues seem to have compounded. Attached is a video of the performance issues of simply dragging an object with a stroke. Note that the recording accurately represents what I'm seeing on screen; the recording isn't just at a low frame rate. Is anyone else noticing these performance issues?

  6. Running on high-end macbook pro with latest OS. 30 seconds before I can use the new tool bars. Once switched ... all is OK. When I switch between persona panels it takes about. All other apps I'm using are lightning fast.
  7. On a mid-2011 MacBook Pro w/8GB of RAM and 421 fonts installed, rendering the font dropdown with previews takes about 11 seconds the first time. That's a lot more fonts than I thought I had installed, but I bet a lot of your prospective users have that many or more, and not everyone uses font management software to disable seldom used fonts. Once the menu is rendered, you can start typing the name of the font you want and skip directly to it, rather than scrolling through the menu, which is nice, but there's no way to start typing without invoking the dropdown. If you do decide to scroll through the list, the scrolling is a bit jittery, even after the previews have been cached. A couple suggestions: 1) Add a preference to disable the font previews. It's a great feature, but one you might not always need, and I'm sure that menu would render a lot faster if it didn't have to create all of those previews. 2) Change the font dropdown to a "combo box" control (e.g., http://dev.sencha.com/ext/5.0.1/examples/kitchensink/#form-combos), and only render previews when the user clicks the disclosure triangle side to open the dropdown. Otherwise, when typing directly in the text input side of the combo box, render an autocomplete menu in plain text.
