I tried a lot of things now, but still cannot improve the performance of glyphs, working with background image:
i thought it would be the best to take one image, a bitmap tiff, of the whole alphabet in one long file. height is set to 1000 pt, length is incidental. I don’t even have more than 12 characters and the image file size is just 700 kb.
now i placed that picture and cropped it to show just the certain letter i am working on.
now that i have this one and only image placed in 12 characters, glyphs is slowed down as hell. switching from the letter overview to an edit tab for instance takes at least 30 seconds.
when i throw all the images out of the file, everything runs smoothly again. but this is not how one would work with template images.
what’s wrong here? what do you suggest for working with images?
(glyphs Version 1.3.25 (526), OSX 10.6.8 AND 10.9)
Sorry to reactivate this old thread. I’m having this same issue using Glyphs 2.5.1 in OS X 10.12.6 and this is the only topic i found in the forum related.
Please, let me know if there is any other thread i’m missing with any possible workaround that i could try, or if there is any other solution i’ll be very grateful.
Thanks in advance.
I forgot to mention that the slow down is of about one second when moving a node, an element, or a bezier point.
It doesn’t seem to be significant, but in real practice it turns out to be very annoying.
Thanks again for your help.
