    Where's the "Faster" in 12?



      Where's the "Faster" in 12?


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      Windows 7 64 bit Professional

      Description of the issue

      Hi - I'm an FM 11 Pro Advanced user and testing 12.  Your promos say it's faster, but I find in reality, its like walking through mud up to your knees.  Where's the faster?  Simply loading a layout takes many times longer in 12 than in 11.  I'm pretty sure it has to do with the new "improved" container fields.  My solution has skins which populate container fields from a settings table with buttons, backgrounds, conditionally formatted fonts, etc.  It's also fairly script intensive in the screen that loads REALLY slowly.  What's up with that?  A screen that populates in a fraction of a second in 11 now takes 7 seconds to load in 12 - not an option.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Take my 11 Pro Advanced solution and convert to 12.  Run it and start navigating around.

      Expected result

      Faster loading of layouts and execution of scripts.

      Actual result

      Many times slower than 11.
