Noticeable and distracting anti-aliasing in Affinity Designer (much of the time)

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've noticed that Affinity Designer when working with vector or with pixel there will be times where the anti-aliasing is straight up jagged at regular levels of zoom. This jaggedness is quite distracting and is one of the major reasons why for a while I was using other drawing apps – but I really want to get back to Affinity Designer!

See the attached image for a demonstration of what I mean: the top half is the poor aliasing, while the bottom half is the good aliasing.   The red squares are where I zoomed in on the image on the left → took a screenshot → pasted the magnified (& pixelated image). It's hard to depict how noticeable this is on your own screen/via an image, but it is very real. Between the two red squares is a third screenshot of the original document where I zoomed in using affinity designer and took a full screenshot (470% zoom) to show where the pixels are actually located on the source document!

Hi @Sean P that is correct: it only happens on Canvas rotations that aren't 0/90//180/270 degrees! Are there any updates on this bugfix? It's one of the few things that ends up being quite distracting.
