Finds: Button v. Script Step WHY ARE THEY DIFFERENT

Question asked by MichaelWiseman on Sep 29, 2016

I was making a script to handle something that was previously done by a series of buttons.

 

A certain find that took ~20 seconds with a button took 8 minutes when that find was a script step.

 

I tested this on the same computer with the same "answer" set.

 

I got the 8 minutes while using the debugger, but without the debugger it was also taking a very long time (I killed FM before it finished)

 

Am I crazy? Does FM somehow prioritize button calls over script calls? is there a way to change this?
