Affinity Photo - Selection-Tool creates huge "Processor Usage"

Recommended Posts



I'm using Affinity Photo on Windows 10 Pro (64 bit) with Visual Desktops build in in Windows 10. 

This means, I have Affinity Photo on my 2nd Visual Desktop in Windows 10! (See screen shot)

I wondered, why the processor usage of the "invisible and unused" Affinity Photo instance was sometimes very high... and sometimes not.

I than found out, that the problem was a "selection" I've made on an opened image in Affinity Photo. (with the selection tool!)

If I remove the selection (Ctrl-D), the processor usage is nearly 0 - With selection, the CPU usage is around 8% on a Surface Pro 4 / i5 / 4GB.

Somebody else made the same experience?

Hi Ecc,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Thanks for your feedback. I have noted some issues when the application is minimised and left alone for some time with a selection active on a Mac which i believe are related to this one. I will check it out on a PC as well and will update the existing bug report if needed. Thanks for letting us know about it.
