PhotoLine locks up when deleting many layers

Post by Herbert123 » Sat 12 Jan 2019 23:09

Something that I noticed when working with imported PDF files which may have a high number of small objects (such as dotted lines): when I select a couple of hundred of objects, and delete them, PhotoLine will lock up. I think it has to do with a loop looping over these objects again and again, and the waiting time for the action to finish increases exponentially with additional objects, up the point that I have to exit PhotoLine, because even after 15 minutes or more of waiting the application is still locked up in the deletion process.

My current work-around is to only select smaller parts/groups of objects, and do this in steps. But it is rather frustrating, because this slow-down/lockup doesn't occur in other applications.

Today I was working on a document, and I had forgotten about this issue, hadn't saved for 40 minutes, and it caused me to lose most of the work I had done, and I had to start anew.

I sent an example document to support@pl32.com
Enter the group with all the dotted lines, and suppose we need to delete the dots for the last four columns. Select all of these, and hit delete. PhotoLine locks up.

It will be faster in the next version.
