  1. I've created a DIN A4 booklet about 80 pages. Before the last two updates the app works good and fast. Now when I open my file, the memory and CPU explode and the app or the whole computer works really slow. After a few minutes the CPU works normaly but the Memory is still high used. Sometimes the tool crashes when loading the file. Is that a known problem? Any Tips for a short-term solution?
  2. With the new version 1.7.0.380 there are a some problems I did not have in any other version before. AP works slowlier. It crashes down every time I try to import or create a new category for brushes. It crashes down every time I try to import or create a new brush. It cursor freezes often when I want to change the settings of a brush. It often crashes down when I try to change the settings of a subbrush. I can't open Luminar Flex as a plugin. Colors sometimes change while exporting a JPG from a RAW. The exported JPG is more yellow and the contrast is to low.
  3. First of all: Love the new features, especially the isometric grid, cant wait to use them seriously! Usually i work on my laptop and have an open browser to google stuff. I noticed that the panning/zooming drops in performance significantly when i switch back to my Affinity Designer Window (artboard). After restarting Designer it works ok for a while, but it always comes down to opening a browser window, switching back to Designer, zoom in/out - no animation or it does not zoom properly. If i want to pan - then i would need to use the navigation bar even though Space + drag is so convenient when using a tablet. In the past it was a non-issue, so i really don't know if it's my hardware. I used to do Vector/Pixel-based Artwork and Designer handled everything fluently. I panned and zoomed like crazy Now i struggle with simple Logo-Designs Could it be that Designer has become a bit resource-hungry since the update? Or is it me? Can i do something about it? My laptops' specs: i7-6700HQ 2.6GHz 16GB RAM Intel HD Graphics 530 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M (i switch them up sometimes) Wacom drivers are up to date (intuos pro)
  4. Hello there, I am searching for a solution for the performance issue when I'm working with bigger vectorgraphics. My System is stable and doesn't provide any bottlenecks. CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 1700X Eight-Core Processor, 3394 MHz RAM: 16GB DDR4 GPU: AMD Radeon R9 200 Series (4095 MB) This is while working with really large vectorfiles: Affinity (big vector) just opened. ...while zooming in and out very fast. My Problem is now, that I don't know how to merge those files - they are so detailed like I never would need them. But I want them to stay vectorfiles to change their size afterwards like I need them. While working with such files, the performance is very bad, I can't copy and paste anything on realtime, or change anything without big lags (adding a new line of words - 15-30 sec). Does anybody know, how I can change those files, lower the details without changing vector to pixelgraphic? What I have tried: 1. Saving them to compressed .svg => not the best idea (poor details) 2. Merging them with boolean operators (this changes pixels to the same color) => useless Thanks mates. Have a great day! Best regards Chris
  5. Im working on a document in APub Beta 1.7.0.376 on macOS 10.12.6 (16G2016). If I use floating text over 40 pages with multiple text frames and insert some pictures and graphics with custom wrappings APub slows down extremely and the fan of my iMac27 (4 GHz Intel Core i7, 32 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, AMD Radeon R9 M295X 4096 MB) start to spin like crazy even if I only scroll. It seems to be caused by rendering the whole document on every event (scrolling, inserting text, etc.) I redesigned the document and use only text frames without floating from one page to the next. And behold... no time consuming rendering. Everything works fine. The slow document with floating text is appr. 2.2 MB the one that works fine is appr. 700 kB. All images/graphics are linked and not embedded. CPU in macs Activity Monitor App sometimes reaches over 500%. Another side effect is the slow rendering of the previews in the pages panels. Rendering-Problem.mp4 Any ideas how to use floating text without this side effect???
  6. Hello everyone, I'm having an issue where both Affinity Designer and Photo stay at "Not Responding" for about 3 minutes when starting up the program and THEN it opens fully. Basically it is super slow to open. This is a clean install as I just bought the software and there's nothing else running on the PC and the PC is still new and running well so it's clearly a problem with the software. I already tried changing the performance options (Renderer to the dedicated GPU instead of the iGPU which is the default for some reason. Also tried WARP). As for how well the program runs once it opens it's, meh, it runs jerky, zoom animations are slow and panning is super slow (This is NOT 60fps as advertised, more like 5fps) BUT if I use the touchscreen it works quite well, much better than the touchpad. I tried the software on a Mac and it was amazing but on Windows it kinda sucks so far. My Specs are: Windows 10 Home (1903 / 18362.145) Intel i7-8550U RAM 16GB iGPU: Intel UHD Graphics 620 dGPU: Nvidia MX150 EDIT: It appears that panning and zoom have improved somewhat! But sadly it still takes super long to start and still says "Not responding".
  7. 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. System info: System Version: macOS 10.13.6 (17G5019) Model Name: MacBook Pro Model Identifier: MacBookPro13,3 Processor Name: Intel Core i7 Processor Speed: 2.7 GHz Number of Processors: 1 Total Number of Cores: 4 L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB L3 Cache: 8 MB Memory: 16 GB I have a Wacom Cintiq 21UX and an old 27" iMac attached as extra screens unplugging them doesn't make a difference.

  8. Allright, the first thing I want to say is that I love Affinity photo. It’s range of functions is extraordinary, the interface is pleasing and the results I get are fantastic. The only complaint I had was that after a certain amount of use it began to become increasingly sluggish and performance fell off quite dramatically. I could see it was really struggling with frequent “not responding” messages , whiting out screens et cetera. Although I trawled the Internet to find a solution to this very irritating problem, nothing was convincing and the Affimity team did not seem to be taking it very seriously. I think I have finally found a solution. First of all, for all of you who are not technical geeks (like me), you should know that AP uses a lot of VRAM, the memory which is found on your graphics card. If this memory is insufficient, performance will inevitably become poor. My computer set up consists of an Intel i5 4 cores with an Nvidia GEFORCE with 3 GB of VRAM. I started to monitor what was using the VRAM. First of all, I was shocked to find that Firefox with 10 tabs open had increased VRAM usage to 70% with no other application open at all. On my computer, the base VRAM with no programs open is 19%. This means that Firefox was using something like half of all available VRAM all on its own! When I completely shut down Firefox, my VRAM use fell back to 19%. The first thing I did therefore was to jettison Firefox which is clearly a gluttonous monster when it comes to VRAM. Other browsers are much better. Edge is now my preferred choice, taking up VRAM usage by only 5% with numerous tabs open. But Chrome is also good. So, if you have Firefox installed and are having performance issues with AP you may have to look no further. My advice is to change your browser and preferably to shut your browser down completely when using AP. I also checked on how much VRAM AP uses. When I open AP, VRAM usage moves up to 23% from a base figure of 19%. If I open five photos this figure increases to 47% with no other programs operating. This is already quite a lot, and it is easy to imagine why problems arise if you have Firefox working in the background. What seems strange however is that when you shut down the photos, although VRAM use falls it does not go back to the original figure, seemingly holding on to memory it does not need. Why this occurs I have no idea. Perhaps AP engineers can offer an explanation. So the second thing I did was to experiment with using the WARP “preference” which can be found in the preferences tab within Edit. This is an alternative to relying on your own graphics card. Using WARP with no other programs open, AP with five photos open uses only 31% of VRAM, a much more reasonable number. I have found absolutely no difference in performance (speed etc.) when using WARP. AP behaves as it should. To summarise, if you are having performance issues, I recommend that imperatively you change your browser from Firefox if you use it and/or shut down your browser when using AP. Secondly, turn on the WARP preference. Also, limit the number of photos you have open at any one time to a maximum of around 5. Regularly save your photos and exit from them. I hope that the above is of some use to fellow sufferers.
  9. Hello, I’m looking to upgrade my iPad Pro 9.7 which I’ve been running Affinity on for the last couple of years. Does anyone have experiences of the performance of the iPad Air vs iPad Pro?
  10. Hello, my system: iMac, Intel Core i7, 3,1 GH, RAM: 16 GB camera: brand new Fuji X-T30 affinity photo 1.6.7 all assistant options inactive on start raw engine: serif labs It takes about 20 seconds to open a file. My Canon raw files are ready in 2 seconds... Any ideas or updates in the pipeline? Thx!
  11. Hi, after some inversigation I found out, that the new Noise Reduction algorithm increases the develoging time more than three times (on my machine): #135: 4 seconds (default setting) #243: 13.5 seconds (default setting) also the new Lens Correction and the Lens Remove Vignette increases a bit the developing time. Without any settings the developing time is nearly the same: #135: bit less than 4 seconds #243: bit more than 4 seconds Is there any chance to improve this in the future or enable to toggle between the new and old noise reduction algorithm?
  12. Hi Mark, regarding the developing performance with a 22.3 MP .CR2 of a Canon 5D M3 Load time: #135 --> 7.5 secs first time, later then 6.5 secs #240 --> 4.5 secs first time, later then 3 secs Developing time without adjustments (default settings): #135 --> 4 secs all the time #240 --> 13 sec all the time and I get a "washed" out image (btw. it's 1.5 seconds faster then the previous betas) If you need a sample file, please let me know... Thanks!
  13. It seems the performance in the newest beta is still messed up. See the movie I attached. All I did was create a new document, float the window, then drag t he window size handle around. This doesn't happen in the production version. My computer is a windows 10 machine running an i5 processor and 2 GB NVidia card. Nothing to brag about but totally sufficient for Affinity.

  14. Hello, I'm trying to use my Huion Tablet G10T in Affinity Designer but it does not work properly. The problem is that it has a lag or delay that does not let draw the stokes/lines well. Also when one moves something with the tablet Pen, it continues moving by itself without direction and no stopping (it stops only when I changed the pen for the mouse). I recently changed the Driver for the last one available on the Huion website -HuionTablet_MacDriver_v14.3.10.181225 (beta) I'm using: MacOS High Sierra 10.13.6 The Tablet works well in Illustrator and Photoshop, but not in Affinity Designer. Any suggestion?
  15. Hi all! I'm writing this 'cause I have a couple of issues using the Insproy G10T tablet with Affinity Designer, and I'm not sure where the issue lies.This tablet works just 20% of time in Affinity Designer. Sometimes it works well for the first couple of minutes, and then just starts to lag. Now, the issue here seems to be very specific: if you click something to select it, it takes a couple of long seconds to do so, unless you lift the pen all the way. Let me explain: if you lift the pen from the surface so that it still tracks the pointer, it doesn’t select/perform the action quickly at all. If you lift the pen so that the pointer is not tracked anymore, it selects it instantly. This seems to be true across multiple actions: resizing, dragging, scaling… I don’t know if this is a problem on the Affinity side or rather something Huion should solve. In fact, I wrote a mail to Huion as well. I just know two things: - the tablet works fine in other programs (Adobe Xd and Pixelmator tested): seems to indicate that the issue is on Affinity side - other tablets (like Wacom ones) work just fine in Affinity Designer: seems to indicate that the issue is on Huion side. I really wish someone could fix this or help me some way. Here is a video that may help to clear things up: https://goo.gl/photos/xwGx8t4dUu1hCfRi8 Thank You in advice, Philip Müller
  16. Hello, I'm experiencing a poor graphics performance after upgrading to Mojave, tried switching from OpenGL to Metal, which didn't do a trick and then switched back. Are anyone experiencing similar sluggishness? And maybe somebody can tell me ways to work around it? Thank you!
  17. I really like affinity designer and consider it a really promising alternative to Illustrator. I purchased this software for my mother who is a lace maker and need to draw lace backgrounds with a vectorial software. The problem is that these backgrounds are really detailed and can have thousands of lines. The move tool becomes quickly unresponsive even on a high end machine such as an intel E5-2678V3. I attached a quick example file - to reproduce the problem: Select all object and try to use the move tool. This really is the only obstacle to us to get rid of the Adobe plague ^^ Does any one have the same problem ? Any kind of help appreciated, Thanks ! Additional information: The same thing works with no problem in Illustrator (a bit slow but still usable). mm.afdesign
  18. Hi! Thanks to the developer for their contribution. Merry Christmas! In most cases, the performance of affinity photo is excellent. But I noticed that in some cases it is slow I used a 100 million pixels Lab/16 canvas to create twenty layers. The save of large-area modifications is extremely slow or even horrible. This is not a bug or a computer problem. Large-size (1000+) brushes are slow. Because of the lack of hardware acceleration At the same time I use the macos version, the speed after 1.7 is amazing, the filter responds in time without any lag, and everything is attributed to metal acceleration (in macos 1.7 metal) Please consider adding Lab/8 support to provide a faster preview than lab/16, especially in the current missing gpu acceleration. I will continue to use affinity photos in macos mojave (metal2 api)
  19. Both Affinity Photo and designer have significant lags when you are nodding some points (with node tool in Designer for example) or applying shifts (in Liquify Persona in Photo for example). I’ve made a couple of videos demonstrating it on the latest iPad Pro 11” (2018). 5C5D9A2B-B4C2-4758-80FB-BC12C17A384F.MP4 A00694E3-1EF2-4E59-ACD9-644738960DBD.MOV
  20. Hej there, I am using an i7 Skylake with an GTX950M and 16GB RAM, still I get very very slow panorama and HDR renderings from Canon CR2 files. At the same time, very little CPU capacity is used (~15-20 %). Tonemapping panoramas takes easily a complete afternoon! I would love to see an performance upgrade in future versions (even if I have to pay for it). Otherwise, Affinity Photo is close to irreplacable as the generated images are excellent. Even the output using the default settings is much better than for example Aurora HDR, imho. Sincerely, Benedikt
  21. Hello I understand Affinity Photo can benefit from the usage of a GPU, I have an Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M since it's a laptop. My question is, to ascertain that software does is working with the GPU, should I select the GPU selection in the Affinity Photo Preference Menu in the Performance Tab?, should I assign it directly in the Nvidia control panel? or should I do both things? Thank you
  22. Bounding box issue I get pink bounding boxes around all images and text boxes that are very distracting and I can't get rid of them. Artistic text is outlined with a similar pink line. it's not a bounding box but a pink outline around individual characters. Image repositioning refresh lag Moving images around the page is almost impossible because the box seems to move while the image is stationary. It feels like I'm trying to crop the image with the image box. Eventually the image refreshes and is positioned roughly where I moved it to. this strange behavior is inconsistent. Sometimes the image box moves with no image in it and the image eventually fills the box by revealing strips, almost like a bad web design page or slow server a la 1997. I use the Publisher program on my Surface tablet with none of these issues. All of my other applications perform equally well on both systems so I'm wondering if there's some sort of specific conflict between Publisher and the Nvidia graphics card on the wacom.
  23. When multiple vector objects are present in Affinity Designer (greater than 20 not placed in groups or layers), the stroke slider becomes almost unusable due to severe lag. if I place all the objects in a layer or group and twirl it closed, the lag goes away. Is there anything that I can do to fix this issue? Windows 10, GTX1080G, GTX1070ti Affinity Designer 1.6.5.135
  24. Hi, The problem exists across all Affinity apps. When I'm in fullscreen mode I can't close the app by pressing the red close btn. I have to do it from the dock or by exiting fullscreen first. Not something major but it is a bit annoying. I believe this is a bug, not a feature? I'm using macOs Mojave but it is the same on HighSierra. Regarding performance - every time when switching between personas Designer and Photo are freezing for about 3-4 seconds.
  25. There seem to be a big performance hit when text wrap (tight, both sides) is applied to grouped vector graphics. Spinning ball everything halt for about 5-6 seconds.
