  1. Another update, anything that requires the software to visually update the graphics based on cursor position, like drawing a cad box, will show a slight lag, it seems to me that with the speed of todays computers that Chief's routine for updating based on cursor position may need some t

  2. An update on my slow as molasses problem, i thought to my self what slows the cursor down when i go from menus to drawing area so I turned off cursor coordinate tracking and crosshair, seems to have substantially reduced lag



  3. So I have a 40" 4K tv running on a GTX970 card - it looks beautiful but when i try to select and draw in chief, the mouse is like dragging through molasses. i upgrade to a 10,000 DPI mouse and cranked up the dpi to compensate for the shear number of pixels to traverse and still seems like molasses, it only seems to be Chief, I run Fusion 360 and don't have the same issue nor in just standard windows programs, I even noticed that the lag seems to ga away when i am over toolbars in Chief, so just seems to be the drawing environment/area. 


    has anybody else experienced this on higher resolution monitors?

  4. I use a surface pro 3 for measured drawing, and in general for job site work, and meetings. It works well for these things, but there are a few cautions.

    • I use it with a miniature Logitech mouse, not the stylus
    • It's a small screen; it works, but things are easier on a larger laptop
    • You'll need to work on a flat surface so you can use the keyboard and mouse
    • The integrated graphics card can slow things down doing 3D work on a moderate size plan

    I love the size and weight. It's no bigger than my clip board.

    BIll, why exactly do you not use the stylus, is it because of lack of mouse button functionality?

  5. I am in Vancouver currently doing work with a designer and architect in Richmond, VA but willing and able to take on more work. Please let me know if I can be of assistance.
