Hi there, hope you all are doing well.
I'm working on a dictionary. Before compiling it, all the resources have to be in the same folder. There are about 85K gifs and 85k mp3s. If I open the folder in Opus, it freezes and I have to kill it.
I've looked for a few things to do but haven't found the solution so far. Total folder size calculation doesn't seem to be an issue, that's very fast.
I've disabled the total play time from the status bar, but that hasn't helped.
I remember seeing someone asking this year ago but can't find the right search terms.
Would someone have a suggestion?
In advance, big thanks.
It looks like a column like Description is on and causing general information about all the files to be obtained, and that in turn is hitting a bottleneck in our code when searching through a huge number of files.
We'll look at improving the place where the bottleneck seems to be.
You might be able to speed things up by turning off any columns that require information that isn't available from the directory listing. (Filters that use similar information can also cause it to be obtained.)
Another thing I noticed is there's an OnAfterFolderChange script running, which may be a factor. May be worth a try to disable all script add-ins to see if it helps. But it's possibly a victim of the delay rather than the cause of it.
