We have a client who publishes documents that have up to 15 000+ unique IDs per publication.
The challenge is, once all these IDs are defined, when one wishes to modify the attributes of any element, Editor takes about 20 seconds to open the Modify Attributes dialog box.
PTC Support have confirmed that: "As it opens the panel, Editor is looking up all possible values for idref and places them in a combo box so the user can select a new value for the attribute. Since there are so many values, it takes a lot of time to capture all the values.
Editor is doing the correct thing here. It just takes a long time to capture all the values and it is not possible to make it any quicker."
So, with this way that Editor handles the IDs, our request is that perhaps Editor should keep all IDs in a cache such that it does not have to build the 'combo box' every time, this way the response time should be improved.
