Text usage is very slow. If I use a text frame, after less than a paragraph it starts to slow down -- I type in text and it takes a moment or two to show up on the screen.  It gets slower as I integrate more text. Slightly worse with artistic text.

Affinity Designer Version: 1.8.3.641 (recent install)
OS: Windows 10 [10.0.18363.778]
Video card: Radeon RX 570 (in case it helps)
OS was recently installed, with minimal number of fonts installed. Same issue even on a clean boot with no other applications running.

Strange: I have a dual-screen setup -- when I use the second screen for the dockers (I would like to have this setup) the problem is MUCH worse.  Note my main screen is landscape and my second screen is portrait orientation.

This is not very much text. I realize for many pages of text this would be the wrong application and that might be an issue but this is just a few paragraphs, that might appear on any number of flyers, info sheets, etc.

Any ideas are much appreciated!

I would try operation with only one monitor. Operating the second monitor can be a big load for the OS, or even the video driver/card itself.
