This is some high-level "complaining" but it's slowing me down so I'm trying to understand. I am using the latest version of Studio 2021 (SR1 126.96.36.19904)
I use hotkeys to often move from the editor window to the translation results window (or concordance, they are tabbed in the same window on top; it's a conventional setup) to copy text or run searches. Whenever the mouse pointer is moved to the TR window and clicked, even without hotkeys, I get the "grinding wheel" that the program is doing something - always. The same when I click back into the editor window (active row). The grinding only takes place for a couple seconds each time, but a couple seconds is a lot when you do it so often.
I for the life of me can't figure out what the program needs to be looking up here, i.e. the reason for the grind.
Is this happening to everyone?
Is there a feature that causes this that can be turned off?
Thanks for any information that can help me!
There are various reasons why this could be happening and various things you can do to improve speed and performance of Studio.
The following should help here:
Untick 'Enable LookAhead' via File > Options > Editor > Automation
This feature basically scans the TM for the next couple of segments for potential translations and on a fast PC this is to speed up the lookup process. However, on an older or lower spec PC it can slow things down.
Also, a Windows Repair of any large software can smooth performance, especially after an update of that software or of Windows.
Here is how:
Let us know if the above suggestions help or not.
All the best,
Thanks for your advice; unfortunately, it didn't help.
"Enable LookAhead" has been disabled for me pretty much ever since it was introduced.
I carried out a repair of Studio as instructed and the behavior continues.
Could you please tell me if you experience the same behavior? Simply click into a TU shown in the results window and then back to the active row in the editor a few times and let me know if it grinds each time. Thanks!
Am away from my PC but have you also tried turning off Match Repair?
Yes, have never used this feature. I'm not sure that this grinding behavior is new.
When you say you've never used it, does that mean you turned it off? I'm asking because it's turned on/ticked by default... ;-)
I've disabled Match Repair and Lookahead from the beginning. Guess I'm old school that way
