rule search is very laggy / constant beachballs

Post by MuchArms » Sat Feb 25, 2017 2:39 pm

Have been using LS for years, so the rule now has ~6,5k rules. My question is, by now working with rules in the rule view using search is really laggy. I see a ton of beachballs whenever I use search.

I don't quite understand that, since in the end the rule list is just a text list that needs to be searched.

What could be going wrong? Is this expected behavior? Is this something I can improve on my end or is it sth that needs to be fixed in the program code of LS? Am I the only one seeing this?

It's not a show stopper but working with rules has become a nuisance as it has become a process of type, wait, type, wait. This is very uncommon for ObDev code so I am wondering if I maybe use LS in a wrong way?
