Affinity Designer on Windows running extremely slow

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am kind of new with AD (windows)

I can notice that it is extremely slow. I am trying to create a ruler texture. Meaning many small lines to make the ruler template. 

Still I believe it is too slow. 

Find attached the file please.

My version is 1.7.3.481 

Is there any way to download previous versions of Affinity ? I read that there are other users complaining about the speed of it. 

 

 

 

 

Please find the file attached.

It's because you have so much vector shapes it will slow the system down while it tries to recalculate every vector part
Just grouping those already made rulers will reduce the lag tremendously.

See my attached file(in my previous post), it is more responsive, at least to me.
Yes to switch to your rtx graphics card is probably best and come to think of it are you using that build in garphics card?
I mean is there a monitor connected to it?
If not,maybe switch it of on your system

I really wish and hope that Affinity can deal with the SLOWNESS on windows 10 devices.  It as a serious lag issue that has gotten worse with these last updates. 

I can't use the vector brush at all to draw.  It can  take a minute  for strokes to appear sometimes and makes for a horrible experience. 

This is a very good program IF there is hope for us users on PC's to have these issues addressed.

I would pay this help, given that Adobe is 21.00 a month for most stand alone apps, I'm not against paying for improvements .  I actually really like this program and want to know if there is anything I can do to help.

I'm running a on A Surface Book 2 so no matter this should be a hardware issue on my end. 

kindly.

I worked today again with AD. Its slow, was a different file, and as soon as there are more than 10 lines....it becomes almost impossible to use.

I have the same issue (windows 10). After about 30 mins of work, it become unusable.I need to reopen the application. I was working on small files, that contains only a few vectors. It has nothing to do with app configuration or pc specs, to me sound like a cache issue. The CPU usage is about 4% and memory about 30%, but the app is very slow.
