Focus Points Very Slow

Recommended Posts

Is anyone else finding Spotlight's Focus Point Tool to be unbearably slow in 2015? Anything that I have to do with a focus point - placing/renaming/moving around - causes the program to stop and think about it for about 15-25 seconds before completing the task. And this time is Increased is I'm trying to do anything to more than one focus point at a time, like trying to grid-nudge 5 points upstage 2 feet. I can initiate the move, then go get a drink, and hopefully it's complete when I return.

Everything else in the program is as quick and responsive as it's ever been.

Anyone have any thoughts?

I rigged up a test file with 150 lighting devices and a few focus points, I am able to move or switch out the focus points and the operations complete in under 2 to 3 seconds, I am not seeing a delay.

Could one or all of you please send me a file you are seeing this slowness in? I can take a closer look. Tech@vectorworks.net , please include a link back to this thread in the email for easier tracking.

Hopefully this bug gets fixed soon. It's really messing up my workflow on some projects right now. I've resorted to deleting viewports on some shows where I I need to do a lot of focus point manipulation, but that means they have to be re-created, which is a major waste of time. I have repeating annual events with many sheet layers and many viewports.
