Beta lll on G4 733 10.4.9
« on: April 01, 2007, 03:05:49 PM »
Hi Kirk. This is much faster than beta ll. The buttons are still slow to appear to let you preview, rotate etc but now it could be the age of the computer. Move to trash worked fine on six files. Cursor inputs do seem still a little slower than I would expect.
Regards. Patrick.

I have it on good authority that the slowness is still not resolved on some systems, so I think it should only get better for you.

Someone has agreed to help me pinpoint the problem with a profiler which should help me quite a bit.

Do you have the Favorites/Navigator pane completely collapsed on your Contact Sheet windows?  If so, try expanding them out a bit with the splitter.  I think the performance should be back.  Let me know if this helps.

Hi Kirk. Yep that's done the trick. Instant cursor response.

That works for me too Kirk.  I don't use the Navigator much so never thought to mention that it was hidden.  Do you know why it's happening?

Yes.  When the splitter is fully closed, it is causing the Contact Sheet to constantly redraw.

I'm working on a fix for the problem.

Yep...when the splitter is closed, PM runs ~75-80% of my CPU, when it's open its more like 3-7%.  HUGE difference.
