Affinity Designer is crashing constantly - to the point it is totally unusable. I'm working on simple shapes, nothing complex, no layers, 2 colors, no artboards. The only consistent variable seems to be when I open and attempt to use a panel like Layers or Swatches. I'm running Affinity Designer 1.6.0 on a Mac Book Pro with High Sierra 10.13.3. I really want Affinity Designer to work - I'm so sick of Illustrator's bloated and non-precise environment. BUT - at this very moment AD is just a painful joke.
waveman777 posted a topic in Bugs on MacHi, After giving Affinity Designer a try, and still struggling with it due to bugs, missing features and unresolved problems, I decided to give Affinity Photo a try, used it for 5 minutes, and gave up. A opened a relatively small picture, very tiny one, and jumped straight to Liquify Persona. No matter which option I used, it works extremely slow, so slow that it's simply unusable. I had to wait sometimes 10 seconds to see the results of a mouse move, which is unacceptable. I played with all options there, no luck, no way someone can work this way. So, I opened the same file in the latest Photoshop CC 2018 and went straight to Liquify Tool - and guess what! Everything works fast, smoothly and beautifully! All moves are reflected instantly. Same goes for AD - keep going back to Illustrator. So, in short, I bought both Affinity software since it first appeared on AppStore, and still not using it - only AD, occasionally, for symbols... I really wanted this to replace Adobe software on my computer and I think I had my hopes too high. Don't want to complain, but when I paid for it, the development was really fast, now I feel that the most important things are still unresolved.
