  1. Using AP 1.6.4.104 on Win10 Pro 64-bit (build 17134.228), running 32GB on AMD Ryzen 5 1600 six-core at 3.20GHz) I was learning from your tutorials and when learning about masking when I used the Flood Seletion tool, AP appeared to stall with the message of "Not Responding" at the top of the screen. Can't believe I don't have enough memory, so what could it be. Only AP and Firefox (v.61.0.2, 64bit) are running. Any thoughts???
  2. Hi there, I noticed an overall drop of performance with the newest version. Especially when liquify masks are involved (but not necessarily bound to the use of liquify masks). It will often react with huge lags even with only using the GUI (selecting tools, opening menus, switching personas etc but not doing anything to the file itself). Can someone else confirm? Update: Its not only sluggish but also a first grade battery consumer. 30% in half an hour. My device is an iPad Pro 2nd Gen 10.5" with the latest OS installed (14.4 as today).
  3. Was working fine in 1.9.0. Copy/pasting simple shapes/lines to create cut file templates. Granted they're rather large files but I had no issues in the previous version. Happens when alt-dragging to copy and paste, and also with regular copy and pasting. Tried starting a new file and bringing in a single object from the old file to create a new template from and getting the same result. Different file of similar templates of a different shape is acting fine, but it originated via save-as from the file that's having the issues. Also started a template from scratch and it is having no i
  4. I'm having really slow redraw on my library of my most often used assets, which I've used since the first version of Designer, and added to over the years, and it always been taken for granted that it just works, but now seems to be broken and is really slow to update when scrolling and has bombed Publisher around five times since testing 1.9.0 commercial release. I did report it below but had no response so thought the best option was to make a proper bug report detailing the assets problem alone In the above link there's a couple of crash reports I realise that some users ar
  5. Hi, when using a RGB document and then a curves layer with LAB color space, affinity becomes totally slow. I added a DOF filter like James Ritson in his 1.9 Youtube today, when you mode the center it takes about 1 second to update. rainbow lab curves slow.afphoto
  6. I have a Macbook Pro 16 with lots of Ram. I updated to Big Sur and then latest Affinity for Big Sur. Now I sometimes have trouble selecting layers. I have to tap them several times. Also Affinity photo is much slower. Help!
  7. Hello The most recent update from Microsoft, the so called fature update slows down Affinity Photo severely
  8. Hi, Try to work with Affinity Designer latest version on my iMac 2019 i5 6 core 40 gig mem Radion Pro 580 X 8 gig with Big Sur. Only a small logo but it is impossible to click the layers or do any work. Regards, David
  9. I have just bought a new iMac and have hardly any software on it. I have installed Affinity Designer, Photo and Publisher and opening files is very slow, maybe a minute! So I created a new web file, which opened very fast, but when trying to close the new empty file it look a long time to close, the wheel of death was spinning for a long time. One of the reasons I bought a new iMac was to speed up my applications but it has done nothing to speed up the Affinity software. iMac specs: iMac (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, 2019) Processor 3 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i5 Memory 8 GB 2667 MHz DDR4
  10. Hello, I work on files that are 20 to 35 MB. Lots of pages (300 to 600), lots of master pages (10 to 20) and lots of hyperlinks in pages and masters. I make calendars, so the pages have tables and text, no photos. And every-time I want to edit text, I get the spinning wheel for 30+ seconds... it is driving me crazy. This happens in all my calendar files, not just one. I have Publisher 1.8.4 My specs are: 2018 MacMini macOS 10.15.6 Processor: 3.6 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i3 Memory: 32 GB 2667 MHz DDR4 Graphics: Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB 128GB SS
  11. Hello, I have a file with about 200 pages and over 3,000 hyperlinks. I have set the hyperlinks to anchors in the document. Now editing in the document is hardly possible anymore, because every action is executed very slowly. Since I want to add more pages with links, someone can give me a hint why the program gets slower and slower.
  12. I love Affinity products and have been a huge advocate of the suite trying to coax anybody to switch. But as of late I have been experiencing the most disappointing and frustrating lag when using Publisher. Although it's two years old, I have an above average computer that is constantly freezing and lagging only while I'm in Publisher. I've included screen shots of computer data as well as activity monitoring but to list the scenario: MacBook Pro 2018, Quad Core i5, 16 GB Ram Activity Monitor Peak: CPU % 320 Project: 18 Master Slides, <400 hyperlinks total, Tables, Te
  13. Hey guys, since I wasn't able to figure out if there's a thread about this, but for me scrolling through pages in Affinity Publisher takes ages – not performance wise but rather the sensitivity of the scrolling seems very off compared to anywhere else in the app. Has anyone else noticed this and gets bothered by it? Especially while working with documents that have a large numbers of pages I tend to broaden the panel so I can see more than a single column of pages, but that's not very convenient because the page in the workspace gets to small. Is there a tweak or workaroun
  14. I'm running Affinity Photo 1.8.3 on a 2018 MacBook Pro 15" Touch Bar with 32 GB of RAM under macOS 10.14.6 Mojave. Printing is excruciatingly s-l-o-w. For the print dialog even to appear took 1 min. 15 sec.! Savor that number. It means after clicking File | Print... I had to wait 1 min. 15 sec. just to see anything happen at all. Since the default printer is not the one I use for printing photos, the first thing I do in the Print dialog is change the printer. After selecting the printer in the dropdown list I had to wait 1 min. 20 sec. before the new printer's name replaced the old one's
  15. as stated above, the Vector Brushes very sluggish PC designer latest version. NOT BETA. I have to wait 3 -5 minutes for Designer to stop taking ram. Then the brushes drawing is a bit smoother, but very sluggish. This seems to be getting worse with every release. This is happening with supplied brushes and third party. My machine is fast, Threadripper, 64GB of ram, 2080 Super, 4K. No reason what so ever for this to be lagging. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Also when is GPU acceleration going to happen on the PC? Gary
  16. Hi, I do a lot of photo editing in Affinity Photo and Capture One. I also do a lot of vector editing in Affinity Designer. Last year, to speed up workflow, I bought a new Apple iMac Pro 3 GHz 10-Core Intel Xeon W, 64GB memory, Radeon Pro Vega 64X 16 GB graphics card and 2 TB SSD. This machine did cost me 8500€! This is very very expensive for me, but previously I had a MacBook Pro (2016) that was too slow for my graphics editing. So I thought to me let's spend a little more money to get a really powerful and fast machine, so my graphics editing will be in realtime without wait
  17. I'm running Affinity Designer 1.5.1.43 on Windows 10 and it is freezing up constantly. About once per minute it'll freeze for maybe 3-4 seconds and then everything goes back to normal. When it freezes Designer will use about 50% of the CPU capacity for the duration of the freeze. I would assume my computer's CPU simply isn't powerful enough, but Designer regularly uses up to 90% of the CPU capacity with no problems. Also this was never a problem before (same computer, same files). It's been about a month since I last used Designer. This problem started last week when I opened it up and updated
  18. Is there a way to make the paint brush less... juttery? When I hold down the bracket key shortcut to resize my brush, it does not resize smoothly. Here's a 10 second video of me resizing my brush. The first 2 seconds are at normal speed, and then the same clip slowed down to showcase the jutter. https://www.dropbox.com/s/7agz3uabfdwfwrd/Slow Brush.mp4?dl=0 Is there something I'm doing wrong, or is this just Affinity not working well? I am using a 2019 MacBook Pro, Affinity Photo version 1.8.3.
  19. Hi, this is a problem we have some time by most beta's that several PS brushes loading very slow, you can't change format of the brush when in use. This happend with mouse and/or painttablet. The brush format in this case is mostly around the 2500 pixel. Lower format around 1000 px is working perfect. Tested in beta 1.8.0.555 with windows ink on and off
  20. I have begin using Publisher to layout novels. However, speed issues are really slowing me down, especially on text that is flowing over hundreds of pages. Other aspects of the application are slow as well, not just text entry. Selecting fonts and sizes, applying styles, and changing visual options like showing/hiding baseline grid is so slow, a force quit is required. The below video shows a text entry example with a file that has virtually no graphics. It is mostly text, 503 pages long. To show the difference in performance, I first type into a single non-linked text frame. Everyth
  21. Hello there... First of all I'd like to say that Affinity Designer is a very pleasant and easy software to use. Thank you for your contributions to creativity! This is my complaint and suggestion: It takes way too long to start up. After I start up Designer, it typically takes about 6 to 8 minutes for the program to start and finally loaded to be used. However, I think this might have to do with the fact that I have over 8,000 fonts on my computer....but here's the thing - some of us are designers (get the joke?), and it is VERY reasonable to have up to 8000 fonts on your compute
  22. Hello I am a fan of these programs but I'm have a very real issue with the lag time and slowness of features in the latest 1.7.3.4 Version of DESIGNER. The vector draw brush takes so long to render a stroke that I can't use it to draw with a time delay that long. Adjustment t to ANY and all of the performance options in the preferences tab did not help with lagging of the software. I'm running a new Surface Book so and have no trouble in other programs so this shouldn't be a hardware issue. I'm very interested in helping and believe that it is certainly worth paying
  23. You guys are selling this in your store. Bought it with you 50% off promotion, but its seriously slow. To the point its not worth using. Is it the brushes or Affinity Designer or Photo? Slow in both. All other brushes are fine. Not my computer at fault..Can't buy much faster than this. https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/store/product/daub-paintbox-brush-pack/ If you dont' have a fix, i wouldn't mind my money back as its pretty useless the way it is. Gary
  24. Hi there. I have just bought the affinity designer and photo. And unfortunately I see that the program is extremely slow, lagging and glitchy. What should I do? I cannot work with this until the performance is so terrible. -.- PC Specs: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (1703) GeForce GTX 745 (With the latest drivers: 06.10.2017, version: 23.21.13.8792) Intel Core i3-6100 3.70 GHz 16 GB RAM Affinity Designer Version 1.5.3.69 For more system informations, take a look to the dx diag file.

  25. Hi, I recently purchased Publisher and have an issue when I search for stock images. They take a long time to load and then everything freezes within the programme. When I scroll the images and more try to load the same thing happens. They do load eventually but it very slow and not entirely usable like this. I have also noticed that in certain situations, similar freezes happen with the Photo app too. I am using a fairly new laptop with an i7 processor and 16gb GB ram, and I do not experience lag/freezing issues within other programmes. Any help would be appreciated, T
