Framemaker 2015 slow to load files with graphics

We have several users running Framemaker 2015.  Files with no graphics will load quickly.  Any time the file contains graphics, it will load very slowly at the page that contains graphics.  It happens whether the file is local or on a server.  Are there any best practices to speed up the loading of a file?  Should the graphics be converted to a certain type of file?  We are currently using jpgs

Thanks

Any format that includes a preview/thumbnail that FM honors is faster during edit (this includes EPS & PDF; not sure about others). Unless the import filters have changed, JPEG is previewed at full resolution (any progressive encoding doesn't help). If you aren't re-scaling and cropping in a raster editor, what you get from modern cameras is usually way too many pixels.

Formats that are inherently more compact in their uncompressed form are faster. For example, use vector formats rather than rasterized images thereof, up to a certain level of complexity.

EPS tends to be optimal, performance-wise, and supports mixed type, vector and raster content. The thumbnail is pretty coarse (72 dpi) but that can be worked around with the scaling trick. Also, unless rendering to a Ps or PDF workflow, what gets output (such as to an HP printer in PCL mode) is the coarse preview.

There's a remote possibility that your problem is some obscure optional feature of JPEG (unusual color space, XR, 2000, odd transfer function, etc.).

I also have and reported on this issue after the final patch of 3 (3.1). The problem still exists for me in patch 4. The weird thing is, it was fine for patch 1, 2 and 3.0.

Try turning off your graphics on one file you have open. Save it, it may pause a few times while you work on it. Then turn the graphics back on. I have no idea why, but mine seems to be ok now?

Hi Rob,

Can you please share a sample file with us where you see performance degradation in file open.

Thanks

Hi ksaini

It works with a brand new blank page too. Go new>document>blank paper:portrait.

Add an anchored frame.

Highlight frame and import any jpg, local or networked.

Go and make a hot beverage while the file imports.

Hi Tom,

Is this slowness in loading happening after any specific updater of FM?

Also is it possible for you to share a sample file/book that is getting slow in open.

Thanks

I am also having massive slowdowns for the same reasons, though it was not an issue for me until the latest update (about a week ago).

I should add that my graphics are not high-res. They are mostly around 400kb or less.
