i got this problem few times. After about 20 mnutes of simply work in AP (max 10 layers with masks and adjusments)

Intel i7-8750h 6 cores, anyone had this problem or maybe someone know how to solve it?

please check photo. here is only 1 backround layer, i had freeze during zoom, after check - processor 100%, its affinity reason or hardware? i bought this laptop 1 week ago

I dont noticed this situation i 1 document but mostly i open more than 1 document

I hope that you dont try tell me that Affinity Photo is software only for 1 document?

i have strong processor, in photosop i can open much more documents and layers and never noticed that problem 

i noticed the same topic with 100% processor on forum, also with i7 processor

yes, problem is also in single document but not each time, its apears random

i found on this forum a lot of the same problems, is in software side, not users, 

single document, more ram doesnt matter here. i bought software and cant use it as i want.

if i will buy ferrari and will drive 40km/h it will be fun with ride? no. the same is with affinity

on my prvious laptop with 8gh ram and i3 processor was ok with ram usage. AP and AD worked slower but cpu monitor was ok.

no on i7 and 32 ram is not good

i wrote in all this topic that people asked about patch to software, are you working on it and you know when it ill appear?

best regards

The problem is "marching ants," consuming a lot of processor power. Try Ctrl+H, or Esc.

what version do you use?

I had problems with the selection tool and other tools in version, which might have been because of the same problems you encounter. (Not sure) I went back to version and all problems disappeared.  My CPU never uses more than 3-4% or so on AP (10-15% total with an I7 processor), no matter how complex the image or how big the colony of marching ants for a selection and not even when I have 5 -10 files open in AP

Don't know if one is related to the other, but I am wondering though why you use such a huge amount of memory. Even with several other programs open, I rarely use half of what your computer consumed, and I have all kinds of programs running in the background. (some voluntarily, some not) Do you have a utility to clean up your computer, like from system mechanics, or Norton?  I think I would close all the programs you can and see if the problem persists (process of elimination)
