Data editor slow - duplicating units, editing values, ...

I'm so lonesome I could cry...
Hello

Duplicating units, editing behaviours, even editing some fields, etc., is really slow which reminds me of the warcraft 3 editor. The fix in warcraft 3 editor was to turn off "Brush map" (Due to it was getting reloaded upon every change). Is there any similar trick today in Galaxy Editor?

Some views that I should be having that are faster than others (makes me bit sad that there's XML behind the scenes...)?
Currently using:
Table View
Display objects as list Tree
Show object explorer
Show field values
Combine structure values

The only thing I can think of is the overview manager. If you have the overview manager open, it'll slow down a lot of stuff since it updates the stats everytime something is changed. You can turn this off in some option in the overview manager so it doesn't update automatically but it's easier just to close it since you dont need it all the time.

Other than that, I think it comes down to a slow computer. There's a bunch of small things that could help a bit but not much.

* Single-clicking on a field and pressing ctrl+c and then single-clicking on another similar field and pressing ctrl+v will copy the value. This way you wont have to open the menu, which might take some time.

* Filling in lists can take quite some time, for example if you switch to the actor tab, it might take 5-10 seconds before you can do anything. To make this faster, search for something before you switch tabs. For example, if you know you're going to mess with the zergling actor, search for "zergling" and then switch tabs.

Those are the only ones I can think of on the top of my head. I'd suggest using "Show Advanced values" as well, but that's just a matter of preference (and might slow you down a tiiiiiny bit).

Thanks for the reply.

Yes I am copy and pasting most of the fields (was quite used to the wc3 editor, and copy pasting worked there too :p ), and using the the "+" sign in structured values, instead of opening up a new dialog... But tend to restart the editor once it gets too heavy, have a decent computer, SSD, i7... Tried sitting on quad AMD also (without SSD though), but couldnt feel any difference.

Switching tabs do not lag for me, only some fields...

"Show Advanced Values"? Where is this option? Is this an option in Heart of the Swarm only?

Edit: quite strange, that on my i7 PC the Show Advanced Values is not being displayed in the top menu > "View" > "Show Advanced Values", but on my AMD cpu, that option exists...

Even more frustrating is that the AMD only has a 92% installed playable version of sc2 (havent bothered to wait for the rest of the installation/update to complete). Cool :)

The editor is changed and there is no advanced view anymore, all values are now instantly in the editor

Where exactly are you looking for?

Hey Listen!!
Data itself, I got confused because you said that on October, and my editor was different :p

But it's ok.

    that field is going to explode and though there is competition there is going to be room for all levels in the coming years imho.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Why are we competing for rough mornings? :(
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't want to compete for that, yall can have it.
  • Varine Varine:
    @The Helper I'm trying. Once I am more prepared to be figuring out school I'll probably ask for your advice
  • Varine Varine:
    Right now I'm just trying to get through the pandemic and figure out how I'm going to pay for it, and figure out what I need to get a job at Best Buy instead of a kitchen somewhere.
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    oy just catching up on the discussion above. @Varine yeah I usually alternate between claritin & zyrtec, depending on whatever my body decides to reject at the time lol
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    the more I use it the less effective it gets over time as my body accustoms to it so I try to not use it every day
  • S songbird:
    Glad to see some interest in the IS3 NUON reprint. :)

  • The Helper The Helper:
    Thank you Carl for making that happen that just might be the spark we need.
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm confused and amazed that NUON and TWV's news postings are the things still active.
  • Varine Varine:
    Or Tom Mai, not TWV
  • Varine Varine:
    Whatever happened to Cheshire? Or Firecat, whatever his real name was?
  • Varine Varine:
    I've been using both claritin and fexofenadine or something like that recently alternately and that's been kinda working, I don't feel like my face is going to explode at least. Eyes are still itchy as fuck though
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I dunno, haven't seen Firecat in a long while now.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    By the way, we have new file attachment size limits now.
  • Varine Varine:
    Are they bigger?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Yeah, new max size limit is 64 MB, to accommodate NUON-Dome emulation.
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I ever ran into a file size problem before. What was it before?
  • Varine Varine:
    I've had file type issues before I think, but I haven't uploaded anything since like 2010.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    alot smaller than that basically barely anything and it would have been different then 2010 because of the forum upgrade
  • Varine Varine:
    lol I forgot this used to look different
  • Varine Varine:
    It's by far the brightest webpage I regularly visit, the first thing I usually do is try to figure out dark mode.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    If you invert the colors, The Helper Forums looks amazing
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    It still has that blue theme at the top
  • Ghan Ghan:
    There's no particular hard limit to attachments. "Something reasonable" is preferred to "a size large enough to fill up the server disk"
