I apologize if this isn't in the most appropriate forum, and for my ignorance as I am not a ProE user.
Intermittently, several users are experiencing tremendous delays when dragging dimensions, tables, or even just individuals lines. It will take several seconds for the movement to catch up with all of the input the mouse provided.
The users that suffer from this are using Quadro FX 580 cards on dual extended desktop displays. I have tried both the latest and PTC-certified drivers on the nVidia site. Neither seemed to help.
I noticed that if I disabled the 2nd monitor the problems went away completely. I also noticed that if I configured the desktop to SPAN across the bother monitors (not just extending to the 2nd monitor), then the problems were more-or-less gone. Even when spanning, there are some very minor delays but it is usable.
So, I thought spanning the desktops was the solution; however, ProE would then open every window across both monitors since it's treating it like a single display. Despite my attempts at changing window_scale to attempt to represent 50% of the screen width, it still didn't work. I tried various combinations with the graphics option as well, but no luck.
I feel these are my options to eliminate the lag:
1. Span the desktop across both screens, and figure out how to force ProE to open windows only on 1 monitor
2. Find the proper drivers + video card settings
3. Some combination of unknown ProE config options
If I could only get window_scale to work as I think it should, then I think that would be satisfactory, but I can't figure out what I'm missing.
This is all under a WF4 M100 environment.
Thanks for any help.
Well, it was partially successful.
Adding the /userva=2900 appeared to help quite a bit, but attempting to move itemson large drawings still generated in a lag. I tried disabling nView, but the problems persisted.
On typical drawings, the movement seems quite a bit better, but on more demanding drawings the lag continues.
Thanks for the help. I'll definitely keep looking for a solution.
