I finally couldn't stand the lag in working with ArchiCAD, and started to test out what made it so slow. Most of the issue is the slow response in selecting, de-selecting (ESC key), which forces me to pause and wait for the selection / de-selection to finish prior to issuing the other commands.

I found that when I turn off the INFO BOX, everything is so much faster and instant. Every time I select a different element made from a different tool, the info box struggles to refresh, changing into the info box setting specific for that selection. I'd like to just turn it off, but as you know, the INFO BOX is so critical I'm not sure that's a viable solution.

One easy way to experiment, select a bunch of different objects, wait for it to get selected (turns blue), then hit the escape key once. Try this with the info box on and info box off.

I would like to know, is this behavior only for me? Do other users out there experience this slowness?

It might just be you.
I have instant selection and deselection no matter how many elements I try with.
No waiting at all.

Things I would try.
Make sure you have the latest Archicad update - 5010 has just been released.
Make sure you have the latest video card drivers.
Try using the 'Standard' Work Environment.
Close the 'Renovation' palette if it is open to see if that makes any difference.
Turn of any trace reference if you have one active.

Barry.

Thank you Barry for your feedback. I did a complete uninstall of everything ArchiCAD and reinstalled everything again, seems to be working normal now. Maybe I had too much leftover bits from past versions, etc.

Regards,

Dennis.

Many different Archicads should not have been the problem.
I have 14 different versions/builds/national versions installed with no apparent issues.

Just reinstalling or updating that version should have fixed the problem I think.
But I am glad you have it working though.

Barry.
