  1. 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.

  2. 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. Everything works as expected. However, editing text in a linked text frame, the lag between characters appearing onscreen is almost ten seconds, per character. In fact, during that time Windows thinks the application has become unresponsive. It is really difficult to work like this. Any ideas? Is this a bug or just me? I hope it's a setting on my computer I can change.

  3. Hi there, I am currently working on a project in Affinity Designer. Somehow, since a week, the app is very slow. If I draw a line with the vector brush tool, it takes about 8 seconds for the app to process and display the line (see attached video file). I've tried the following: - restarting the app - restarting the iPad several times - disconnect and reconnect the Apple pencil - checked if everything is up to date in the App Store - whether the iPad is charging, charged 100% or detached from a charger: it reacts the same - the Apple pencil is fully charged Other drawing programs such as Procreate are working perfectly, so it's nothing to do with the iPad or the Apple Pencil. The app is somehow crashing all the time. It's been like this for five days now, without any changes. Hopefully you can help me with this! WhatsApp Video 2019-09-17 at 15.23.54.mp4

  5. I'm using Publisher to print 30 booklets, A5 on A4, and it's taking ages. I'm using an HP Photosmart B110a from Windows 10. Why is this, and is there any way to speed it up?
  6. Hi, I am using a new 11‘ iPad Pro with 512gb and I am trying to stack several (Raw) images into one. Stacking 10 images seems to take around 10 minutes, for me that seemed to be pretty long. So I checked the CPU load when Affinity Photo stacks the images and my iPad is hovering at around 26%. When idling it is at 4,5% (see attached image). Is this normal or a bug in Affinity Photo for iPad? Maybe the process is running on just one core? Thanks Mathias

    Slow

    I'm the first to admit, I'm a total Affinity fanboy so this is a difficult one --- I've been sitting on this problem for a week or so as I know publisher is a massive deal and a major focus for the Affinity team - but I can't work normally on my children's book illustrations as there appears to be slowdowns, the most annoying being the time it takes to open the .afdesign file which has gone from around 4 minutes to open in 1.6 (which ran nice and quick and snappy) and roughly about the same time to open in betas 1.7.0 - 1.7.0.7 (still nice and quick performance) then with the move upto beta 1.7.0.8 performance had slowed to a crawl then 1.7.0.10 refused to open the file but appeared to be fixed in beta 1.7.0.11 although it was now taking around 10 minutes to open and still with the slow performance issues (originally reported on May 6th - see below) With the 1.7.0 Appstore release I was having slightly better performance and far less beach balling but I timed the document opening at 16 minutes (WHAT!) then came the 1.7.1 update (me hopeful I'd get some performance increase) but I was left watching "Loading 1 document" for ages way more than 16 minutes before force quitting and restarting my mac (wish there was a progress bar?) so thought I'd time it opening = 46 minutes (AAAGGGHHH!) well at least it opens! - I though before bothering the forum, I'd have a go at trying to improve things with a few tricks that helped me out years ago in Illustrator and also Quark - so I went back to the first 8 pages which I put together in 1.6 which opened up in around 30 seconds in 1.7.1 and was super quick and nippy to get around then I took pages from the 1.7.1 46 minute doc and copy pasted into fresh art boards in the 8 page doc - all went really well I I was getting nippy performance compared to the 46 minute version, which was slow and choppy to get around - re-saved as 'NITN proper.afdesign' I also went through all the pages and layers and trashed anything not in use, in order to streamline the file - saved, quit Designer and re-started and re-opened the new file, thinking I'd wait maybe 5 minutes or so so at most, thought I'd time it, just in case = 1 hour 50 minutes (WTF......AAAAAAAAAAGGGGVHHHHHHHH!) + lots of beach balling - although, no more jumpy, choppy performance when getting around and zooming (between beach balls that can lock up for around 5 minutes) The artwork for the first book in the series (which uses all the same characters, textures and all that and is the same 26 page format) was having similar performance and opening issues in the last beta but now takes less than a minute to open and is nice and fast and fluent in 1.7.1 and all my smaller documents run like a dream. I'm currently at the final 'last tweaks stage' before we get PDF and hard proof copies to send out to agents and publishers along with the first book (we are down to the last 30 hard proof copies) - all flawlessly put together in publisher using rasterised linked tiffs of the art boards from the problem file. Just wondered if someone can offer help or advice - and yes, after tuning into Affinity Live the other night, I wish I had Metal compute but I need to stick with El Capitan as it's the last Mac OS that runs 32bit apps (CS5) without major issue (I only very occasionally run Illustrator to plug the gaps til' designer has all the knobs and whistles) but the main one is Acrobat pro 9 which I need for checking pdfs as theres nothing else, apart from Callas PDFtoolbox (£500!) so NO METAL (for the foreseeable future) (original forum bug report:-)
  8. 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 to the latest version. System specs: Windows 10 64-bit Intel Pentium G4400 3.3GHz dual core 8GB RAM Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 256GB SSD Any ideas what might be causing this? Thanks.
  9. I have a Windows 10 laptop with a 7th gen Intel i5 CPU, an NVIDIA GTX 1050 GPU, and 8GB of RAM. I'm limiting my RAM usage in AD at almost all of it (7850 MB), have my dedicated NVIDIA GPU as the renderer, retina rendering set to "low" (don't know if this makes a difference with my regular 1080p screen), but with gradient dithering and precise clipping on. However, when I transform a shape, it's noticeably slower than 60 fps. Maybe at 30 or 25 fps with frequent frame rate drops (the frame rate drops also happen when using the pen tool, but the regular frame rate is noticeably smoother) and it sometimes doesn't update the whole workspace at once, so I see bits of my project lag behind others. I know my computer isn't an absolute beast, but shouldn't these kind of specs still be able to run a program like this faster?
  10. After processing a number of 16 bit images in Affinity Photo, I exported them as 8 bit tifs. I have the Embed ICC profile and Embed metadata boxes ticked. When I viewed the 8 bit images in BreezeBrowser Pro they were very slow to display. I've contacted BreezeBrowser support and they have suggested that the issue is probably that Affinity Photo does not produce an EXIF thumbnail and this is why the display is so slow. Is this the case or is there an option somewhere that I need to switch on?
  11. I'm having a problem with the Clone Tool stalling. When I click the image I want to select, nothing happens. You must wait awhile for it to show what you have cloned. Then when you try move the cloned image and produce the cloned image, again, it takes awhile before it appears. Finally, when it does appear, the quality of the image is not as intense as the original (it's not a big difference, but noticeable). I've considered uninstalling and re-installing the entire program, but don't know if that will help. I am using Windows 10. Any suggestions?
  12. Hello, I've recently discovered Affinity as an alternative to Photoshop, Illustrator. I was looking to replace it at work and rather than paying £50 a month for CC, I can pay £50 for the software. I've been using it on my Mac at work and it's been an absolute dream to work with. In fact when it comes to working with large PSD's I've found it performs better than Photoshop. However, Windows is a very different story, it's so sluggish. My computer is very powerful, i7, 8GB RAM and AMD R9 Fury. When moving layers there is a second delay before it actually moves, when applying Adjustments there is a second delay before it updates. It makes the application unusable as I feel like I'm fighting with it to get it to move layers, sometimes it's so delayed I get lost in the layering system. Adding a layer inside a layer (nesting) takes about 2-3 seconds. Moving layers feel sluggish, just everything feels slow. I haven't tried Affinity Designer yet, however the slowness of Affinity Photo on Windows 10 is stopping me from moving from CC as I use a Windows at home and Mac at work.
  13. 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".

    Tool Lag

    There is excessive lag when using almost any tool in the app. Hope this video helps. I have deleted the app and re-installed. Also re-installed iPad iOS. Nothing is helping. Slow .mov
  15. Hi, I have downloaded the new 1.7.0 version and followed by 1.7.1. The performance is a disaster and a real workstopper. Drawing something with any Brush tool is the worse I have encounter anytime (no matter if Healing, Brush or Clone....). I have a new top series NTB and Wacom Pro..... but I feel like working with old 486 PC :( I have been using AP for about the time of the first official release, but never saw anything like this :( This had not been a case of 1.6. version that one worked fine for me, but now I do draw something on Wacom and have to wait around 2 to 5 seconds till I see it on the screen, which makes any realtime drawing impossible I have tried restarting many times..... sometimes it works most time not...... It does not seem to be problem of Wacom as it looks the same working with touchpad or a mouse. Do not tell me I am the only one with this problem...... Please let me now ASAP as I am a professional and this makes my job unable...... Thanks Jindra

    Turbo stuck in 1.7

    Updated 1.7 ok working fine, 3 days on the trot. keep experiencing lag, using iPad Pro 4 gigs of ram. 163D1D5D-CF9F-444E-83E1-0376B452E117.MP4
  17. When I’m using design and use .. welll anything. It’s very very very slow or keeps crashing on me. It’s its slow I can’t even use the app,at this time
  18. Hi, I have lots of fonts and it slows down the startup of Affinity Photo and designer, because every time it is loading all fonts. Is there anything I can do to speedup things besides deleting fonts? Regards & Thanks, David
  19. Just fired up beta 1.7.0.11 and had a go at opening a kids book I'm illustrating - which now opens in this beta (the prev beta 1.7.0.10 would always bomb after around 10mins trying to open the file) :- OK I can live with designer taking 9mins to open the file when 1.7.0.7 would open in around 4 or 5mins for the same artwork, but now the redraw is just painfully slow to the point it's un-usable, I know that beta 1.7.0.8 and 9 were having problems with complex vectors when snapping was switched on and would lock up for around 5 mins if you tried to move anything by dragging (using the arrows worked fine) but this is far worse I think the last time I did any work on the book was in 1.7.0.7 and it was a little slow maybe, but now the same file seems to be 10 times slower and virtually un-workable - I can't see it being a ram issue as I have 48gb with a massive chunk assigned to designer - the previous book in the series is super nippy and is just ascomplex with more pages and takes around a minute to open and was put together in the last app store version 1.6.1 see the attached vids for speed comparison com.apple.AVKit.Share-2F7C8C51-448C-44DB-8315-A260FFD2FFD3.mov Fast.mov
  20. The brushes on the RC2 are working but on screen its all very slow. I use a Intuos CTH-480 for a smooth working I need a mouse. If choose a brush the whole thing is slowing down. But what I use are PS brushes. The vector brushes from Frankandtoon are working smooth with the pen.
  21. I just purchased a new iPad Pro and bought Affinity Design and Affinity Photo. When creating images in Design, anytime I merge layers (using either merge down or merge visible), the program crashes and loses my latest work. Help!
  22. Hello! Affinity Designer on mac for a very long time. I liked everything. Now I installed Affinity Designer on Windows. And I cry with bloody tears, I don’t understand why such “delays” are “glitches”. The canvas moves smoothly, but all panels (for example, layers, stroke) work very slowly, especially if they are “disconnected” from the interface. It is also difficult to move the panels, jerks and delays. By the way, in beta version 1.7 there are almost no such problems, everything works smoothly. Except for the layers panel PC configuration: intel i7-9800X CPU@3.80GHz GPU 1080 Ti 32g RAM Windows 10 pro Affinity Designer version 1.6.5.135 (downloaded from site) Can this problem be fixed?
  23. Hi all, i started to open a small psb (because the other i'll have to open are 20gb) and i'm waiting for 30m now. i dont know if or how you can help me but here goes: my settings: started at 09h42m. grabbed memory and seems like writing on c drive. my v drive is a ssd and has the memoryswap and i can see no action there by 09h47m still consistent by 10h00 the memory usage lowers a lot by 10h10 goes up a bit now it is 10h15m and the memory is at 8.5gb dont know if this speed is normal but i was not expecting to wait half hour (so far) for this. i'll be back to the pc in an hour or so and see how it goes but it is bothering me because i have 5 psb files to merge thank you for your help and time.

  24. It takes over 20-30 minutes to enter tone mapping or develop persona. In general performance is painfully slow although my laptop is well above the recommended specs. I'm on an i7-7700HQ 2.8ghy proccesor, Nvidia GeForce 1050ti with 4GB, 16GB of DDR4 ram, and affinity is on a an SSD hard drive. I've tried switching all options under the performance tabs, but nothing seems to help. Would really appreciate some help as the program is currently unusable for me.
  25. 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!
