Affinity Designer Locking Up with Simple Gradient Move

Recommended Posts

I have been trying to figure out why Designer is performing so slow right now. Nothing has changed with my setup and I have plenty of resources. Every time I drag a gradient across the artboard, the program locks up and I have to wait at least 4-5 minutes for the beach ball to stop or I have to force quit the application. I also noticed that when I zoom in on an artboard or work file, the program never adjusts the image. It just stays blurry. 

Affinity Designer 2 (2.1.0)

Can you please try turning off metal and let me know if this improves the response time when you drag the gradient on the artboard

Didn't the OP above said he uses OpenGL?
