Hello Dear Dev,

i have one question that can also be taken as a suggestion for the entire Affinity product line (Designer, Photo and Publisher), have you ever though about implementing a scratch/swap/cache disk/technology ?

i mean, evolved softwares uses that functionality to help their product not kill the weakest port of the system which is the RAM.
Well affinity products runs well but ... by making it possible for us to setup a scratch or swap space that is directly on our Hard Drives will help us doing better and working with less stress.
To give an exemple just check how linux works with swap space.

There are lots of people who uses Affinity line because they can't afford the rock start products which requires to upgrade the hardware again and again.
Making it possible for users to setup that space directly on their physical drives will change lives as one will personally estimate how big the scratch/swap/cache space will be and work no stress (for those who may go up to 30 or 40GB swap/scratch space.

That space must be cleanable in many ways:
1- From the software itself (in its launched state) a line in the File menu saying : Clear scratch/swap/cache content.
2- From the Preference center just add it to Miscellaneous section : reset or clear cache/scratch/swap content.
3- Must be clearable when doing the full software reset combo.
4- Must be cleanable with usual cleaning tools.

Trust me guys, implementing this will make things even better and i believe there are geeks here who can help making this even clear for us.

Blessings !
