Livecode 9.0.1 Community for Windows IDE stuttering

Post by fredjoans » Fri Sep 14, 2018 12:00 pm


Is anybody else having this issue? This was just released on 9/12. The IDE is impossible to use for the Community edition for Windows version of 9.0.1. It is super slow and typing creates stuttering of most characters.

I have this issue with the script editor since quite some time in Windows 10, and i will not move to Apple computers. I suggest turning OFF everything that has to do with autocomplete, etc. Sometimes, I use a separate text editor instead and then paste the code into the IDE editor. Keep all at bare minimum. I also read that it is better to close the message box and other IDE windows that are not absolutely necessary. I hope, someone will attend to Windows versions and improve speed in general. My users all use Windows and nothing else.

This appears to be a problem with messages hanging around too long

try this in a button...for me on my Win 10 machine this helps to reset the speed for a while.

repeat until the pendingMessages is empty
cancel item 1 of line 1 of the pendingMessages
end repeat
