Extreme slow opening files in Publisher

Recommended Posts

Dear community

I have the issue that Publisher files open extreme slow. The files are about 70 to 130 pages with lots of graphics (Affinity Designer only). The documents open and than it takes about 20 to 30 minutes (Apple beachball) until I can work on them. Does anyone have the same problem? Or does anyone have a solution? Thanks for any tips 🙂

>> Mac Mini 2018 3.2 GHz-6-Core Intel Core i7 with Big Sur, 32 MB RAM, files on external HD

>> Affinity Publisher 1.10.4

Thanks a lot

Is the external HD connected directly to your Mac, & if so, how fast is the connection to it (USB 2.0 "Hi-Speed", 3.0 "SuperSpeed", something else)?
