Sidebar selection feels slow Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Is it just my imagination or does the most recent build (rev 95633) feel slow when clicking on projects in the sidebar of Project mode? There seems to be a noticeable delay from the point I release the mouse button to the point at which the content of the project is displayed. This seems to happen even on very small projects with only one or two actions.

I don't recall this delay being there before. Perhaps it is related to this change from the release notes:
When changing selection in the sidebar, if there is exactly one result row in the content outline and it is expandable, it is now automatically expanded.

Of course, I could just be imaging things as well. It's been a long day.
 
I'd say to trust your instinct =)

Could you try the following:

- Launch /Applications/Utilities/Activity Monitor.app
- Get OmniFocus all ready with the keyboard focus in the sidebar
- Find OmniFocus in Activity Monitor (the search filter on the toolbar is useful here) and click the Sample Process toolbar item
- Quickly (!) switch to OmniFocus and hit the up/down arrow keys on the keyboard repeatedly

Activity Monitor will split out a report after a few seconds of this which you could then post here or send via feedback.

Thanks!

Yes, I notice the same thing.
 
Does this happen if you switch between two empty projects? If not, how large are the projects you are switching between?

Yes. I get a delay of between 0.5 and 1 seconds for empty projects next to each other on the tree. I get a delay of 1.5 - 2 seconds for larger projects separated by a great deal of distance. 3 seconds to display the whole library.

The amount of delay is not always stable. I timed the delays at a different point and sometimes got somewhat shorter or longer delays. Always still noticeable, though.
 
Also, the delay is worst when I have the action filter set to "All." When it's set to "Next Actions," things are pretty quick.

File sizes: I checked the OmniFocus package size; it was 344 KB before rebuilding, 56 KB after. The delays persisted after a rebuild.
 
I'm seeing the delay with little noticeable difference on projects ranging from no actions all the way up to 20 or more actions. I'm displaying Remaining actions in Project Mode.

The delay is, perhaps, most noticeable if I select a Project in the sidebar and press and hold the down arrow key. The selection scrolls from one project to the next quit slowly. And it's dramatically slower than selecting an action in the content area and holding the down arrow key, which zips down the list almost instantly.

Strangely, I don't see this delay when scrolling through the list of Contexts in the sidebar of Context Mode. It only seems to happen in Project Mode.
