Charlie,

Here are the results of my test and the testing procedure:

First I rebooted my machine, running Windows 10.  A MS update was queued and installed when I rebooted.  Then I opened Google Chrome and loaded up some websites that I keep open.

1. Ran 1.15a.  Still very slow.  Things worked and nothing locked up but sometimes I had to wait for responses from menu clicks and cursor movements.  This seems to be from program start till I closed it.

2. Ran 1.14a that you uploaded.  Ran like a champ.  No slowness, no waiting on menu clicks or cursor movements.  This was even true when I loaded my test image and went through the steps to generate the gcode.

3. I deleted the current install of 1.15a, reinstalled 1.14a then loaded 1.15a over the top.  Response was very good till I loaded the test image.  Things slowed down but not as bad as in testing scenario 1.  I was able to utilize the software but had to wait for some menu clicks and cursor movements to catch up.  In a nutshell, this install ran much better than the first 1.15a install but not nearly as fast as 1.14a.

Below is my current log file.  I hope this helps.

Donnie
