TG Tools Align/Move Dynamics slow on Windows 10

Post by motet » Sat Feb 23, 2019 7:01 pm

I recently bought a new computer running Windows 10 after using Windows XP and Windows 7 for a decade. I notice that when I use TG Tools Align/Move Dynamics via Alt-Keypad-* it's slow. The "wait" cursor comes on and it sometimes takes a few seconds, where it used to be immediate on my old (much slower) machine.

Does this ring a bell for anyone?

No problems here.

Do you have the 64 bit version?

No, because I have a 32-bit version of Finale.

It is not slow on my Win 10 machine and Finale 26. It does slow down as your document increases in size and length but you should expect that. You still have 2014.5 since you said it is 32-bit? Beware if you go to Finale 26 you will have to learn a silly unnecessary routine in order to be able to print. MM seems to have no knowledge of how to or any interest in fixing that problem. But, hey, we got ukulele chords and didgeridoo sounds! :( BTW, printing with 2014.5 and Win 10 has no issues.

I see no compelling reason to upgrade.

It seems Win 10 has thrown MM a curve ball which they can not hit.
