Announcing the new Datavyu v1.3.6 with enhanced features and transcription support!

I'm on a Mac running El Capitan 10.11.6. Since updating to 1.3.4 to take advantage of the fixed way to move columns around, I've experienced serious lag when using temporal alignment. Files will open and operate smoothly with temporal alignment turned off (though is not useful for our coding purposes) but with it enabled there is about a second of lag for everything from adding a new cell to clicking an existing cell to edit a code and even just scrolling through the file. To be clear the delay is within the speadsheet itself and not the video playback; it happens whether a video file is open or not. The lag is severe enough to where I can't code with this version and will need to downgrade back to 1.3.2. However, I've noticed that about 1 out of every 10 files I open does not lag, though I can't identify what is different about them. It seems to be pretty random. Is there any known cause of a lag like this that might be affecting most of my files but not all?

Can you please let me know how many cells you have in an average column and how many columns you have in a typical spreadsheet? This is a new problem and I will look into this problem with our developers.

Typically our spreadsheets have around ten columns. Half of those columns will only have 1-10 cells each, but the other half vary widely, and can have anywhere from 20 or 30 cells up to around 1000. We can usually count on at least two columns with more than 100 cells each. I wish I could offer an easier "average" to work with, but our data is very diverse. Also, I should mention that I have not had this issue since downgrading to 1.3.3, so it is definitely caused by a change between those two versions. Hope that helps!

I believe the problem probably has to do with the number of cells you have in your columns. Supporting 1000 cells can definitely cause a lag. I will look into the problem. I'm glad that reverting to an older version has cleared up the issue for you. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Can you please email me a copy of one of your files with many cells to test? My email is vicky@databrary.org.
