trevor Posted January 19, 2017 Share Posted January 19, 2017 (edited) Hi Neo... This has irritated me since day 1, so I thought I'd take some time to play with it, and bring it up again as a fairly serious issue since you're working on V4. With MBS loaded, simulation running or not, if you try to work in another window on the same monitor as MBS, MBS will kill the mouse performance in that window. Kill the mouse = mouse is sluggish, hesitates, jumps, and is basically irritatingly unusable..This is true when the covering window completely obscures the MBS layout graphics panel... Leave ONE graphic line visible and it seems ok. Actually if you cover it with 2 windows and leave one pixel in the corner visible it is still ok. I noticed the following which may be unrelated, but it may also be a clue... With MBS in 2D mode, set the covering window position so you can still see the margin rulers in MBS. Now move the mouse around the covering window.... Notice the ruler cursors still move in the MBS window... Actually.. they still move even when the mouse it out in the clear on the desktop.(Even as I move it around on THIS window, which is two monitors away ....) It seems you are monitoring and acting on system mouse movements and not window mouse movements..... Note, It is not a performance issue... MBS has no apparent effect, or a much much less significant effect, on windows that are on other monitors or that do not obscure the MBS graphics panel. Similarly, working on the other windows that do NOT cover MBS do not appear to affect the MBS simulation or frame rate. So I.. literally.. work around it. But I'm certain most users do not have that luxury. Best regards T Edited January 19, 2017 by trevor Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
