I'm curious if that means that some of these issues have been finally addressed in this beta: AFD-5524, AFD-5525

If so, that would the best Christmas gift I might expect for this year!

Hopefully, these changes will be propagated to Mac beta/release branch, so we can see some improvements on macOS as well.

What should be improved is the export quality of PNG and JPG. The developers of Designer should compare the PNG and JPG exported from Designer with the quality exported from Illustrator CC. The smoothing in Designer and export quality are much worse than Illustrator.

I first thought the lag was gone, but it's not.

Yea works better when opening AD but as soon as I work on It it starts laging, mostly with text. Less than 1.10.4 most of the time but still here !

How can you have this issue for so long and not looking properly at it ? Are you looking for people to leave ?

Configuration: Win 11, 32GB memory, Ryzen 7 5800X, RTX 2080, Samsung PRO nvme SSD

I am doing heavy 3D animated stuff on my machine can you explain me how AD can lag if others heavy software don't ?
