Affinity Designer crashing when switching between openned files

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I work with files that have lots of vectors, usually my AD files go from 50 - 200 MB. Recently AD has been crashing when I switch between openned files, like between 2 AD files and even one big AD file and a high resolution PNG file. It gives a "not responding" message, then the only way is for me to close it. Sometimes when it gets back it has a recovery file, but sometimes not. I really don't know what to do. I'm losing time and work! Please tell me if you think is a hardware problem, or a configuration one, and how can I improve my AD experience. 

Here are the specs:

DELL Inspiron 5448 
Windows 10 x64
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-5500U CPU 2.40GHZ

I've been using Intel(R) HD Graphics 5500, but I also have AMD Radeon R7 M260. And this problem has happened with both. 






Thanks a lot! <3

Hi @lusb23,

Welcome to the forums. 

You seem to have the RAM usage limit set to nearly 52GB, when you only have 8GB ram. Try to set it to a reasonable value - 5120mb, restart the app and see how it goes.
