Printing - Lagging with spinning cursor ball


#1

Decided to move some simple db’s from Pan 6 over to Pan X… I have been frustrated with spinning cursor balls while printing. I am also getting this while working on a form, creating or adjusting it…
It takes over 45 seconds once I start to print to pdf using system dialog for it to release back for me to use Pan X.
A little maddening… I just want to get back to work with the db but it will not let me. I have to wait…and wait…
This also happens with just printing to a printer…

My main database has 500 records in it. I have another db with 8000 records with 15 fields it goes and gets data from with lookups. Pretty simple stuff. Pan 6 flew through this without a delay. I thought maybe it is the view as a list form that had Superobjects (read where only text display objects should be on it) brought over from pan 6 so I deleted that form. Still really slow. Maybe someone can point me to what I can do.

Thought about just trying to build from scratch. Maybe there is something related when bringing a Pan 6 file over.
Any ideas?

I don’t know why you are seeing the spinning balls, but I can tell you that form objects created manually are exactly identical to form objects created when a Panorama 6 form is imported. So I don’t think building from scratch will help if you just create the exact same thing.

If you have multiple windows open in a database, you might try closing windows other than the one you are currently using. Extra background windows can slow Panorama X down. (Background windows associated with other databases, however, do not affect performance of the frontmost window.)
