Push/Pull Tool Impossibly Slow



Hi All,


Bit of a problem at the moment - For some reason the 'Push/Pull' tool is impossibly slow in certain files. Generally speaking the file I'm working on runs fine, I'm able to work on it smoothly in Open GL mode and thats how I'm working for the most part. However, for some reason selecting the 'Push/Pull' tool causes my system to all but freeze up (in any rendering mode, including wireframe).


If necessary I'll record a video, but it basically shows the following:


- 2 Storey building with some simple doors, windows, stairs, a couple of references

- Roaming around and spinning about smoothly in 3D in open GL

- Find a simple cube which I want to extrude a little

- Select 'Push/Pull' tool

- Move mouse over to cube, but sit watching 'spinning wheel' of Mac loading for about 5 minutes.

- Nothing happens, give up and deselect. After another few minutes, system will unselect the Push/Pull tool and file works fine again.


Any ideas? Is this a known issue??

I think that wouldn't be the case when PushPull had an option to work on selected objects only.

That would also make face selection of (occluded) objects much easier.


My problem with latest VW releases was more that it failed to select any objects faces

in files with a certain complexity at all*, than speed issues.

(*until you used CMD+F for these (3D !) objects to bring them to front !?)
