The problem with Nudge
Authored by: sfgecko on May 24, '04 06:29:35PM

I've used Nudge prior to this hint, and there are a couple problems with it. First, w/ Nudge you have to select the files you want to refresh. This defeats the purpose of doing a quick refresh w/ a single keystroke command, e.g. F5 in win.

Second, if you select a few big files and try to bring up the contextual menu to execute Nudge, it takes several seconds for the menu to come up. Without nudge installed, the munu comes up much quicker.

The problem with CMMs...
Authored by: jiclark on May 25, '04 12:02:33AM

...there's a known issue where certain Contextual Menu Modules take a lot longer than others to come up when right-(or control-)clicking an item. I found, for instance, that if I took the CMM 'Ittec' out of my Contextual Menu Items folder, the annoying several-second delay disappeared!

If I were you, I'd do a systematic disable-enable routine on each of my CMMs until I found the one that was slowing down the works...

And BTW, I think it was mervTormel that I owe thanks to for pointing this out to me many moons ago! [Maybe Rob should turn this into a hint!?!?]

Later,
John

i don't know what Ittec is, and don't see it anywhere on my mac. i'm pretty sure it was nudge causing the cm slowdown.
