I love Affinity products and have been a huge advocate of the suite trying to coax anybody to switch. But as of late I have been experiencing the most disappointing and frustrating lag when using Publisher. 

Although it's two years old, I have an above average computer that is constantly freezing and lagging only while I'm in Publisher. I've included screen shots of computer data as well as activity monitoring but to list the scenario: 

MacBook Pro 2018, Quad Core i5, 16 GB Ram 

Activity Monitor Peak: CPU % 320

Project: 18 Master Slides, <400 hyperlinks total, Tables, Text Boxes, Shapes. There are no photos, no embedded items. File Size - 1.4 MB Total.

What the lag looks like: Spinning beach ball while trying to type a FOUR letter word on the attached page (21 hyperlinks). 

Note: I've even deleted most all of the hyperlinks (less than 40) and I am still experiencing lag and freezing.

I have a similar problem with Publisher in Windows 10; CPU- and memory use are soaring on almost every function up to the point that the app freezes (from which it does not recover) and after several of such problems, closing and opening the app in an attempt to get it working, it refuses to open all together and I had to re-install it to make it start up. After re-install the same problems continued.

I also am having issues with a document that I used to edit on an old macbook in an earlier version of publisher with no lag. My macbook died and I upgraded to a Windows 10 machine with the same 16gb ram and an SSD but this one has an 8th gen i7 whereas the old macbook had like a first gen i7.

I paste in a background and am trying to move in a small pasted vector on a 240 pg document and the thing is so laggy I can't work.

Doesn't matter if I tell it to use the integrated Intel vs the Nvidia graphics card.
