Hell everyone, I've been using Affinity Designer for quite some time, and I have noticed that if I use it for more than an hour, my mac starts overheating. Find below my macbook pro specs and a screenshot of my activity monitor. It would be of great help if someone finds a solution. Thank you in advance.
Hi there, I'm a new user of AP (1.4.2), which I really find great! I'm running it on my MacBookPro retina 13" mid 2014 (16GB RAM, 256GB SSD, Intel Iris 1536MB) with El Capitain 10.11.6 (everything up to date and working fine so far). Unfortunately, I have an issue that is seriously affecting my activity with AP: When I open a file (whatever the size, even a few Kb jpeg), it's sufficient to make any selection (even a simple squared one) to make the machine starting to overheat and get the fan running at full speed. This happen just by having any selection active (i.e. marching ants). If I remove the selection, the machine cools down... I also tried to set the "Use only integrated GPU" option, but it didn't help... By de-selecting the "OpenGL Hardware" option things seems to get better , but the performances are quite severely affected. I searched in the forum, and I see that with the beta version someone reported a similar issue (https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/8723-laptop-running-hot/) but it seems that everything was fixed at that time.. My point is: Is it normal such a behavior on a machine that is quite new and well featured? (I'm using my macbookpro even for real-time HD video editing without anything like that. Useless to say: With PS CS6 it is working perfectly without any performance issue). I hope someone can help me. Let me know should you need more information. Many thanks in advance! Marco
Hi, First of all, Thank You for AD and making noise on the design software market. AD looks promising and I wish You all the best. Now to the point. I just bought AD and first time I started to work with it I have very unpleasant surprise. My screen goes crazy (check attached photos) after 5 min from the opening of AD. In general it is similar to graphic card overheating artifacts but I have checked temp. of everything and it was low. Even fans in my MBP was quiet. When I've closed AD everything was OK again. Other programs are working fine and no screen artifacts. To be sure that it is not related to overheating problem, I have done the same next day just after starting my MBP. It happened again after 5 min. (I was checking the watch). In this situation it is impossible to work with AD. Another curious thing in my case was zooming in AD. It was messing up with the sound. I was listening to music from Grooveshark and while zooming in/out, it was instant pause, than zoom was over and sound was going normal. I have checked the same issue while playing local music and it was ok for some time. Than screen artifacts occurred and music paused again. Can You look into it guys? I will try to help You as much as I can, cause I would like to use AD in my work. I am using OS X 10.9.5 on a Late 2011 MBP i7, non-retina with Intuos 5 touch. Regards, AJEL
