Having just upgraded to Mojave on both iMac and MacBook Pro, I am finding that zooming in and out and the consequent screen redraw is very slow when compared to the previous OS. Is anyone else noticing the same? I tend to have 100s of glyphs at a time on display in edit mode. Speed was not an issue previously and I note that screen redraw speed increases when I only have a dozen or so glyphs on screen to edit.
*In addition, the drawing process speeds up significantly if I do not “show background”.
**Also… exporting seems to be taking a lot longer too, even for a slight edit and re-export, the time taken is considerably longer than in the previous MacOS with Glyphs 2.5.2 (1167).
*** Finally, I think, the Open Recent menu no longer logs recently opened files.
We have received reports from other users. Someone found that disabling certain plug-ins worked for them. Please try for yourself and report back in this thread if you found the culprit. Thank you in advance
Okay, Rainer, I can report that I had 5 plugins installed:
Show Next Font
After deleting one by one and testing and reinstalling, I can report that the problem for me seems to lie with SuperTool (by Simon Cozens). With SuperTool removed and the other 4 restored, screen redraw speeds are much improved and there were no missing/white areas on edit pages when scooting around a set of glyphs.
However, exporting still takes much longer than expected and my MBPro’s fans ramp up to max during the export process. The “Open Recent” menu is also still blank.
The above tests are with Glyphs 2.5.2 (1167). I have just updated to (1168) and the export issue persists, as does the recent items menu.
Thanks for your time on this, it’s greatly appreciated.
Oops, didn’t see this. @paulogoode, are you still having problems with this? It’s plenty quick for me but I may not be using Glyphs quite as heavily as you are.
If it’s still a problem, could you let me know more details: i.e. is it still a problem with SuperTool installed but not active (using the normal select tool)? Are there particular operations that are slow? I can also send you the latest build to see if that helps.
Thanks, Simon, I haven’t re-installed it to check and won’t have time to for a while now. Maybe someone else can jump in and test, but it does appear that Georg put the rockets back into Glyphs with the most recent version, so I imagine SuperTool will be fine too now.
