It takes a long time - way longer than FM 16 to render the list of fields in a large database with some tables having 250 fields.
Thank you for your post.
How many tables do you have?
Are there any external data sources being referenced?
Are any plug-ins installed/enabled?
There are 35 tables, 11 of which have 100+ fields.
The main table has 600 fields. It takes 2 seconds to present toe list of fields, but when I start typing a certain fields's name, it takes 10 seconds to find that field - the letters I type appear very slowly - the first one after several seconds.
This was not the case with FM 16.
The speed doesn't increase on subsequent searches.
Even clearing the search is not very responsive (clicking the round "x") - it takes time, spinning blue wheel, and sometimes crashes.
The search is faster with tables that have less fields, bus still slow and not very responsive.
I had disabled the baseelements plugin and restarted FM prior to testing.
There are 4 external data sources pointing on other FM databases, but these do not exist i.e. I didn't copy them to the main database's environment .
If you are crashing, can you attach the crash/DMP file?
It may be best to send in a clone of the file. I have sent you a private message with instructions where to send the file.
