File export operations: implement them as background tasks

Recommended Posts

One serious issue I have with the Affinity apps is the slow PDF export. Very annoying when you're in a hurry and have to edit and export a dozen of files to meet a print deadline.  A year ago I posted this message here on the forums:


For example, exporting a simple 31.5"x79" test file took 2.5 minutes in AD, with the CPU usage going up to the max of 800%. On the same computer Illustrator exports the same file in 25 seconds. Obviously the AD export process isn't very efficient so there is room for improvement.

One way to deal with this issue is to move the export operations in the background, allowing us to open and work on other files at the same time. Adobe did that with InDesign a while ago.
