About building parametric objects with GDL.

AC27 windows. Lots of crashes when creating objects...

Mats Knutsson

Anyone else?

Barry Kelly

I am not creating new objects in 27 so I have not come across any problems with crashing.

But I have noticed that when I open a few objects at the same time to tweak parameters, that the new GDL editor is very slow.

Takes a while to open all of the objects, then takes even longer to open the scripts.

I can go to a script window and will see nothing.




Sometimes I will see just one empty line.




After a while I might see the whole script - sometimes not at all.

I can open the script in a separate window and sometimes it will be there, but still not in the main script window.




Sometimes I have to close and reopen the object for editing before it plays nicely.




Mind you, running low on RAM and hard drive space is probably not helping.

But it should be able to handle half a dozen objects at once.


I am not really liking this new editor.

I am just glad I still do all of my initial object creation and editing in version 22.

I am only tweaking default Graphisoft objects to do as I want them to in 27.

Now AC crashed when saving a patch. Something is not healthy with 27 and object creation.

What OS?  Where is the save location?  Local? Network? Cloud?  Cloud-backed local folder?  Etc.  please give details about what is causing crashing etc unless you just want to vent.
