Thanks for this! Could you use Tropy for a few minutes and then copy and send me the entire file? Perhaps that will tell me more. The part above is interesting, because at first glance I can’t see anything obviously wrong. Opening and showing the project window is currently one of the slowest operations that we have not optimized yet: that seems to take less than 2 seconds, but after that most of the other operations all take less than 200ms so they do not seem to cause everything to slow down.
If you start Tropy, then close the project window (i.e., Tropy should still be active, but without any open projects) – do you observe any slowness then? How about when you then select
New -> Project from the menu to open the new project window? Or is everything slow only when there is a project open?
Earlier you mentioned that ‘consolidating photos’ pops up repeatedly. Does this happen consistently? If it does, it means that Tropy cannot find your photos (at least intermittently) or that it thinks your photos have been altered and keeps importing them again. If this were to happen all the time, it might explain the slowness – but if consolidation keeps running this should also be reflected in the log file.
Finally, if you open a new project without any photos – does that also cause the computer to slow down? Or does it happen only when there are photos in the project?
Thanks again for your help!
