Dear friends,

I am disappointed from the speed of the cursor to move the insertion point. This is far less than the speed I get when I repeat characters...

I notice this only in FM. Other applications do not show this behaviour.

Hm. I cannot replicate this on my machine.

See my recording: https://techcomm.io/assets/screen-recordings/FM-insertion-mark-speed.mp4

 

The sound in your video – is that the cooling vent from your machine? I noticed that the fan gets crazy while you are moving the insertion mark. Have a look at the Windows task manager (you can set the task manager in its Options menu to "Always on top"). While doing nothing else in FM, CPU usage goes up to something between 2 to 10% (like in all other apps for me).

Thanks, Stefan for the information - I'm working with FM-15. Need to test with FM-16 to judge...

Performance is not that bad on my system:

Anyhow it seems to be a quirk of my system, so don't worry..

Hi @K.Daube, we have further investigated this, and could reproduce the "slow movement" effect in certain scenarios. My understanding from the internal discussion is, that FrameMaker updates panels like the character and paragraph designer (and others) with every cursor movement. The more panels you have open at the same time, the more panels FrameMaker needs to update with every keystroke, the slower it can get on some machines.

We are investigating this further and will improve performance it in a coming update.

«FrameMaker updates panels like the character and paragraph designer» 

For about 99% of my editing time designers are closed, also catalogues. Assignment of formats are done by using, for example, F9 lbt ENTER to apply ¶-format lbt-list-billeted-tight.

But it might have been the 1% time slot...
