[KNOWN ISSUE] Affinity apps have performance issues on macOS Monterey

Recommended Posts

  • Staff

Please Note: All of the issues mentioned below should be resolved by updating to macOS Monterey 12.1 or higher.

Due to code-signing changes in macOS Monterey, Affinity Apps can experience performance related issues such as spinning pinwheel (beach ball), lag or delayed operations. Below are a few examples that are affecting users:

  • Delayed app startup
  • Panels such as Brushes, Macro, Styles etc... populating slowly and delays when scrolling
  • Lag when using Channels Panel, especially with Pixel Selections
  • Delay when selecting colours from the Fill Tool / Gradient Tool on the context toolbar
  • Lag when browsing Presets in the Crop Tool

This issue is logged with our developers and they're currently investigating.

As a workaround, some users have found that disabling Automatically Adjust Brightness under Apple > System Preferences > Displays reduces these delays.
