    Slow Performance and poor responsiveness in X12

    Check a few things on your Mac. 1. Free storage space. Apple symbol in upper left corner > About this Mac > Storage > how much free space do you have? 2. If you need to free up storage, on the same screen > Manage 3. From the Desktop Hit GO in the upper tool bar > Utilities > Disk Utility > Run First Aid on all the Drives listed on the left. 4. Update the OS, this will also update all your drivers like the one for the video card. Apple symbol in upper left corner > About this Mac > Software Update > Check Automatically Update > Advanced > Check them all 5. If there are updates, install them 6. Reboot > hit Commad + Tab to see if anything other than Finder is running, If there is > Quit the App 7. Test CA

    That was my next suggestion. I would call Apple and ask for technical support. After troubleshooting by phone, they'll send you a box for shipping to their repair facility. 1-800-275-2273

    Have you tried a standard USB Mouse as a test?

    Justin, How are you connecting the Computer to the TV? Thunderbolt 3 Adapter ? HDMI cable ? Display Port cable ? It may be possible that your connection/cable in not 4K capable. Try to list the exact components. I know on 4K TVs with a 4K source, the connections can cause trouble. Wireless connections like Apple TV or Chromecast will always cause a delay.

    I would guess it's the huge TV running at 4K causing your delay. The recorded screen I posted was the MacBook Pro 16" screen running at 3072 x 1920. I didn't try a 4K TV. I also have a Mac Pro (2013 Trash Can model purchased in 2017). It has dual - 3GB video cards. I recently purchased two new monitors for it. I decided on 27" BenQ PD2705Q, which are 2K - 2560x1440 and $399 each. I researched 4K monitors and the text would have been too small for a 27" monitor. That's why I purchased the 27" 2560x1440. I like using dual monitors. I keep the plan on one and the library and 3D views on the other. I also run Windows on one, using Parallels, and the Mac OS on the other. I do this while using QuckBooks in Windows and writing invoices on the Mac side using Numbers.

    Here's a screen recording from my 2019 MacBook Pro. You'll see there is no hesitation, when it stops, it's because I was using the laptop touch pad. Processor Name: 8-Core Intel Core i9 Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz Total Number of Cores: 8 Memory: 32 GB Video card AMD Radeon Pro 5500M, VRAM (Total): 8 GB Screen Recording

    You can test your video card using Geek Bench. This software will test your video card performance and you can compare it to other computers. The download is free. Also, open Activity Monitor and watch it as you use CA. Activity Monitor does not show video performance. Activity Monitor is part of the Mac OS under Utilities.

    The video card preference can also be controlled in System Preferences > Energy Saver

    Is your computer plugged into power or are you using it on battery? On battery the MacBook Pro does not use the 4GB video card. It only uses the dedicated video card when it's plugged in.

    Computer recommendations

    I just bought a Laptop that works very well with X12. 8-Core Intel Core i9 Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz Total Number of Cores: 8 Memory: 32 GB Video Card: AMD Radeon Pro 5500M with VRAM: 8 GB Storage: 2TB SSD It's a Mac Pro but the same computer with Windows would work just as well.

    TV for conference room monitor?

    I've been using a 40" Sony TV for clients for about four years. I ran an HDMI from the computer to the TV. It worked very well. In the past, I had it mirror my monitor. I recently updated the computer and bought two new 27" BenQ monitors. Now I have the TV mirror one monitor. I use the second monitor for the library and other tools. Sometime this year I'd like to update the TV to a 55" - 4K. My new monitors have a resolution of 2560 x 1440, the present 40" TV is 1920 x 1080, so when I have the TV resolution match the monitor, some of the desktop is cut off. If I have the monitor match the TV, the monitor shows a slightly smaller screen. Hopefully a 4K TV will be able to match the monitor resolution. I researched 4K monitors and the resolution made the text and menus too small on a 27" monitor. That's why I went with 2560 x 1440. I'm happy with that decision.
