In painting tool lags or doesn’t work

Recommended Posts

The inpainting tool lags badly and at times doesn’t work.  I have an iPad Pro 2018 so this shouldn’t be happening. I have tried closing and reopening the app and the problem persists.

I haven’t noticed this for quite a while but when Idid experience it I found that doing a merge visible (leaves all layers intact but creates a new layer containing all previous edits), and then working on this new layer resolved the slowdown for me. :)

Hey Lindajcochran,

Welcome to the Affinity Forums :)

The performance of the Inpainting Tool can vary depending on what you're doing with it and how much of an area you're trying to edit.

We would need to see a video of the performance and possibly get a sample file from you. Please follow this link and read the top section to see how we recommend submitting a bug report.

I would suggest following DM1's advice as well.
