This PSD file I was able to open and edit previously, but after installing 1.1 Monsoon, it just hangs when I try to open it. Here's the file: ... o.psd?dl=0

(Pixelmator Pro 1.1 Monsoon on macOS High Sierra 10.13.5 on MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, Early 2015))
It opens on my laptop just veeeerrrrrrryyyyyy ssssllllllloooooowwwwwwlllllyyyy...
Like between two and three minutes slowly. There's obviously a problem but, if you need to get to the image and do something with it urgently, you can do, albeit with some pain and frustration.
I tried saving it as a native Pixelmator Pro file and it still took stupidly long to load.
Nice image, by the way.

I managed to open the file and I think the biggest issue is the number of layers — there are ~700 layers and most of them are individual dots in the MacBook's speakers. In terms of performance, we're currently focusing on improving opening and handling larger images like this, so this will be fixed. For now, I've flattened the MacBook's speakers to reduce the number of layers from 700 to 48. You can download that version here.

Thanks, that helped.
