The last while layout have taken a long time to open for me. I timed it last time and it took over 3 minutes. I'm on 7.0 SR3. Is anyone else experiencing this?

Hi Bruce, I just tried to open a layout that has two windows (5 Bibles in one window and 8 commentaries in the other window). It took an amazing 29 seconds to load. I don't usually have a layout with more than two windows, but on the few that I do have, they all loaded in an "appropriate" amount of time.

I am using 7.1.0.0016 and layouts open surprisingly fast....but....awk!  All my previews for layouts are missing. Hopefully that is temporary anomaly.   

After some fiddling it seems that new layouts preview fine, but most (not all) of the previous layouts have no previews.  That is likely irreverent to this thread, however maybe I am just having a good morning, but in 7.1 b6 my Layouts are leaping up as fast as I can remember! I mean like 3-5 seconds for moderately complex layouts. So there may be hope!

I have dual monitors and this layout took only 5 seconds to open up. I am finding that L7/LN seems to be quicker than at other times. Still uber impressed with FL and EVERYTHING it does.

Below there are a layout screenshots of a dul two monitor setup.

The first layout took 10 seconds and the second took 20 seconds.

I guess if you have four monitors and many pictures you have time to make some coffee (Kenyan coffee is the best)

Okay, now I'm jealous. I just tried my two most popular layouts. The most complex one still took 2 1/2 minutes and the other one took 1 1/2 minute. Angry

I have a reasonable fast i5 that is only a few years old. Perhaps I need to make my layouts less complex but I really like them as they are.

Start Logos with CTRL key held (to get logs). After the layout has loaded:

  • Provide a screenshot of your layout
  • upload the compressed (zipped) logos.log file

Thanks Dave. Here is the logos.log file. Every time I tired to load it with the CTRL key held it didn't seem to like it and gave me a warning message.

Do you happen to have Logos Now? Have you tried the Multiview Resources tool?

I find the multi view UI to be more responsive than using linked sets. Using a multiview for each linked set of resources would reduce the number of panes from 7 to 3, which should also make a big difference in load times.

My top three Logos 9 Wishlist items: Carta, Dark mode, and Hebrew audio bible, please.

Yes, I have Logos Now. I just have not taken time to convert this layout which I have used more many years.

Hi Bruce, 

When it comes to actually opening a layout, it might be the size of the layout (i.e. the amount of panels you are opening) or the amount of visual filters you have. On the other hand if you didn't have any problems in Logos 6 with the same layout I would think that odd. Logos does have to open up everything you're asking it to do in quick succession. But I've not seen people have problems with the layouts menu alone as you are reporting. Can you post the display tab from DXDiag? you can open DXDiag from the search bar in the Start menu by typing dxdiag into search and. Either take a screenshot of it or click "Save all information" and post that.

That's another issue. What was the message?

Try permanent logging as per https://wiki.logos.com/Diagnostic_Logging   and upload the zipped log files folder.

I replicated your layout and it loaded within 45s after starting Logos, and within 7s from the layout menu. The logos.log file (not LogosError.log) should indicate what is happening with your layout.

I believe that my diagnostic logging was already enabled but I did it again just to make sure.

Do you have anything in the layout that would be using or opening your Collections?

I don't think so. But I did have an additional window open with several resources that I have since decided to close.

Can you update the driver for the onboard graphics? If the drivers that look appropriate to you here end up being rejected, then try this page to see if there are new drivers or not.

Thanks Tommy. I'll check this out when I have a bit of time and am connected to wifi.
