redraw speed is extremely low


FileMaker Go



Operating system version

iOS 3.2.1

Description of the issue

Not sure if it's just the layout rendering engine or also working with the data, but drawing layouts is extremely slow on iPad. I can see usually at least 6 different rectangles to be visibly redrawn in sequence almost every time I switch record or rotate the iPad.

The redraw time ranges from nearly 1 second with simple layouts to several seconds when there are overlapping objects on the layout. Working with list views requires a lot of patience.

Tested with databases copied to iPad via iTunes file sharing, so network speed could not affect the speed.
