Hi Everyone,

 

First, I would like to thank you all for posting here. I have found many answers to my questions in the past without having to post questions. I've posted once previously. Still would like to learn more about the construction side of things if only to better understand what I'm drawing. I've only been drawing (off and on) about 6 years so still much to learn.

 

My question today though is about the software itself. Is anyone having time issues when doing a search in the Library Browser? When I start typing the first or second letter the little blue spinning ("please wait I'll be right with you") icon pops up. My wait times have been between 30 and 45 seconds. Is this normal. I have a relatively fast machine Windows 10, i5, 8gigs, etc. Is there a setting in Chief or Windows that might help speed up the search process?

 

Any help is appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Tony

I have seen a 5 sec lag sometimes. But I also have a very large user lib.

That was one of my suggestions to Chief Architect team <here>. I doubt anyone wants to search on one letter only, like "e". (egress)

Chief expects you to be a fast typer and be able to enter few letters before search executes.

Search time depends on number of catalogs and user items you have. If you install every possible catalog it will take some time to search. Letter "e" has known frequency of "12" (over 50%)

Haha, Thanks Tiger, it was my typing speed! And since I'm on the slower spectrum of that talent I wasn't making the connection. All is good now.

 

Now, back to work!

      I am having an issue with the Library Browser where even when the top left Icon and in the view tab icon is show with a check mark to indicate being open but there is no sign of the Library Browser actually popping up on my screen or right sidebar, next to the Project Browser, as I have used it before. Has anyone else had this issue? Am I missing a setting that would hide the Library Browser or does this sound like a glitch/issue?

      I was wondering if anyone has ever built a script that loads a folder full of additional libraries that were downloaded to your machine instead of spending time clicking on each library.  I am a teacher and have 27 machines and its very hard to keep all of the libraries on all of the machines for the students to browse, and I dont want to have them click and run every single one.  I am looking for a one stop file that does this for them.
       
      Any help would be great.  
       
      Thanks

      Many of these I have personally made or modified. Some of the content may have been created by others for which I will give credit. Many of the materials have free licensing, so no credit is needed. 
      Some of this content may slow down your program as I have a high powered machine and often times use complex and high resolution textures. I will try and give as much detail as possible. Use at your own peril!
       
      No but seriously dig through and enjoy, I've spent a good number of hours ensuring the quality of these symbols and will update them periodically- so CHECK BACK IN! and PLEASE GIVE A LIKE FOR THE POST OF ANY SYMBOL YOU LIKE, IT ENCOURAGES ME TO GO BACK AND REFINE/REDUCE/OPTIMIZE THAT SYMBOL. GIVE A DOWNVOTE AND IT'LL PROBABLY ENCOURAGE ME TO DO THE SAME THING...YOU'LL JUST BE A JERK FOR IT
