We just created a navigation bar composed of global variables set at login. It works great, but there's a 3-6 second delay when going to a different layout with the navigation bar, and it's not the navigation script that's doing it. We put a timer on the script, which is executing in under 1 second. We created layouts without the toolbar -- again, under one second to access. But when we navigate to a layout with the toolbar, it at first looks like the button doesn't work before it goes to the right layout (about 3-6 seconds). This doesn't seem like a big deal, but the user experience is actually pretty frustrating, since it doesn't seem like the button is getting clicked (even though it is).
Any ideas to make this go faster? Do we have to give up on global variables on layouts?
