I just installed 2.35, and the menu’s are really, really, slow. If I hover over one of them too long, it actually gets selected without clicking on it. This was happening with the CVS build, and I had hoped that the final release would fix it. The computer is an Athlon64 3200+, with a GForce 6800GT 256MB video card. A fresh version of XP Pro is installed, also installed SP2. This issue also occurred before SP2, so I know its not that.
i had something like it… anyway, it depends on what your making. foreinstance, if you are working on objects with a lot of subdivision and subsurfacing, then it is simple really. your processer is just running to much at once.
here are some tips…
-try working witout subdividing objects and as low poly as possible
-try restarting your computer, every now and then computers slow down without a nice resart.
-try not to run as many programs as much while blender is running
try to free up some space and memory, but it sounds like your ok.
last but not least, blender is run as a 32bit program. if you are running a 64bit processer than try searching on google.(note- use this as a last resort. try to use the other tips first.)
Sounds like a video card issue. Have you tried reinstalling OpenGL?[/quote]
opengl comes with the video drivers [and with windows, but that is a software version]
unless you’re running windows 95, you don’t need to install it
2.35 turned on antialiased fonts [international fonts] by default, which can slow down [or make unusuable] some computers. they can be turned off by pulling down the info header, going to the third tab from the left [language and Font] by pressing the green button in the upper left [International Fonts]
put the info header back, and save the current settings as default with control+u [do not have your file open when you do this or it will become the default setup]
