Slow as a rheumatic snail

Can someone tell me why Cura is slow as a rheumatic snail??? It's really annoying that I have to wait 5-10 second or more when I change a setting. I like the SW otherwise, but this slow speed kills or the positive sides. Just can't understand. I have disabled the continuous slicing with that it was completely useless.

    It's very fast on most computers.  Even old, slow computers.  A lot of people complain that it is slow but most people find it just fine.  Try a different computer maybe?  

     

    It could be something to do with security (try turning off all security features for 10 mintues) or it might have something to do with the fact that it is always looking at drives (there was an older version of cura that was very slow if you had a certain kind of external drive plugged in - cura was trying to figure out if that was an SD card or something strange).  So check all your peripheral storage devices (and network devices) and see if dismounting them all helps.

     

    I'd just try a different computer.  It works great for me on both windows and linux.

    Perhaps if you tell us about your computer (OS, GPU), your Cura setup (what sort of printer, did you use the Custom FFF Printer or a predefined one?), and post your logs somewhere we can access then, we would be able to find out what is going on on your installation.
