Web Direct gray-screening
Is there something I can do to mitigate Web Direct's gray-screening?
I find I spend a lot of time looking at a gray screen and a spinner. Editing fields will cause a translucent gray screen to appear with a spinner in the middle, sometimes just for a few seconds, sometimes for several seconds; the gray screen will come and go when I type another character into the field, or when I move in and out of it. Scrolling with two fingers on my trackpad will also trigger it, along with some really awful, jumpy scrolling motion in the background.
At the moment, I'm simply using the "Assets" starter solution as-is, with just one record.
What factors contribute to this? What can I do to prevent this from happening?
If I can't eliminate the factors, can I somehow disable the gray screen from appearing? Loading is fine—I get that things take time to load—but the appearance of a translucent screen across the entire browser window while I'm trying to type into a text field or simply scroll the page is considerably distracting.
Try opening layout setup for the layout and disabling the auto-save option if it is enabled.
