Delay select an Text Object

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, (sorry for my english)

 

When i create an text object, and i will select it, is happening an delay of 2 seconds (aproximately) for the object appear selected (blue corners). Do you having the same issue ?

 

This is bad because it break the fluid opperation/ user experience (having to whait this 2/3 seconds) each time i select some text object...

 

All others objects, the time of selection is instantaneos, just text objects are slow...

 

How to fix it ?

 

Thanks !

Does this happen on all designs? Could you post your Mac and OSX details so we can recreate the issue here.

 

Also how many fonts do you have installed. You can use Font Book to find out how many.

Hi TonyB,

 

I tested uninstall all fonts (restore standard fonts) and yes, the issue is about number of fonts installed.

 

But, i still can see difference of "time of answer" (delay) between selecting an object and selecting an text object. There is a fraction of second of delay (getting an text object).

Maybe an delay proportional at the number of fonts installed ?

 

tks

Thanks for the information. I have reproduced some of the issues with many fonts on an old Mac Min so should be able to investigate it properly.

The paid-for App Store version will be updated in due course as you expect. That might take another month or so. Meanwhile, if you want, you can try the customer beta. The beta is a separate program that you can download and install alongside the App Store version. For a download link and more information see the first post in the beta forum at https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/forum/15-affinity-designer-beta/.
