Copy and paste problem: pasting takes ages. Very very slow

It seems like Rhino 7v Beta is still affected - at least in all the computers in my studio! - by an ancient problem: pasting takes a lot of time. By the way it was happening to me also in v7 WIP.

And it happens on all the three different PCs I have in my studio: a desktop workstation DELL T7600, a Portable Workstation DELL M3800 and a Microsoft Surface Pro 7. So: not a single case, I would say. All the machines are Windows 10, up to date.

On all of them, pasting command takes ages, also when starting from a clean file then modeling a single cube and trying to copy/paste it.

On the T7600 and the Surface, setting Display Pipeline to “Windows” instead of the default “OpenGL”, solves the problem; but, of course, I wouldn’t keep this setting.

Strange enough, if I try to do the same on the DELL M3800, viewports are not working anymore: modeling operations become “blind” meaning that, whatever you do, nothing changes in the viewport. The viewport remain “frozen” to the visualization that was there before switching display pipeline to “Windows”. So, on that machine, not even switching to display pipeline setting to “windows” works.

I’m kind of desperated, as this, appearently “minor” bug, makes the modeling process incredibly frustrating.

Hope that a solution will be found.

Hi @gian
It sounds like you are having major graphics card/driver problems. Run the command Systeminfo In Rhino on each machine and post the results here. I’m guessing it’s either a driver- or plugin issue.

Hi Jackob,

first of all: thank you! Here you are the systeminfo files. Even if, sincerely, it seems really weird to me that, on three totally different machines, with totally different graphic cards, bought with many years one to another, the problem could be the graphic card drivers for each of them. The only one where I reckon I could actually have drivers problems is the M3800: that one has always been a bit tricky, when talking about graphic system drivers. But what about the brand new Microsoft Surface 7?

Anyway I attach here the systeinfo files: whatever possible idea is welcome!

Hi @gian
The drivers are all old - some of them even VERY old - in terms of graphic drivers. You should update them (or at least check for updates) once every 2-3 months. If you look at the notification tab (right side of the Rhino interface - right click and select “Notifications” if they aren’t turned on), you should see some links to follow for updated drivers :slight_smile:
HTH, Jakob

Hi @Normand,
updated drivers to the very last availables for all the three system (the older “installable” on the systems is a driver of end 2018, the newer is 2020).

Updated also all the Windows drivers to last version.

No luck: nothing changes at all! Exactly same problem with pasting: open Rhino, model a cube, copy the cube, paste…looong wait.

Any other idea? I’m quite frustrated. :frowning:

Hi @gian
Nothing springs to mind, but run the SystemInfo command again and post the results - maybe @pascal can take a look?

Hi @Normand
Now I am not in my studio, so I’ll post the systeminfo results as I’ll be back! But I can add to my description a (useful?) detail: when copying entities through gumball dragging (gumball arrow+alt key and drag), copy is instantaneous: no lags, no waiting time at all, despite object complexity. Isn’t this weird?

Hi @pascal

Thank you for your feedback! Does it means it’s a known bug being addressed or at least observed? Sorry for the stupid question but this is the fist time I see the platform where your link goes to. Seems like a bug addressing platform to me, but just to be sure.

Bye.

PS: ok, opened a bit widely my shortsighted eyes and I’ve seen the box on the right hand side of that window. And, yes, it’s a bug tracking platform. :sweat_smile:

I am having the same problem with Rhino7. Makes it difficult to work since I am constantly cutting and pasting. I will switch back to Rhino6 if this is an unsolved problem. Is there an issue opening files in Rhino6 that have been saved in Rhino7?

Yes and No: meaning that you can’t open files created with Rhino 7 in Rhino 6, but you can save them from Rhino 7 in Rhino 6 format. Please look carefully at the “Save” Window and select the Rhino 6 format.

By the way: if you want to switch back (and not to upgrade to 7), you should consider seriously doing this operation with all the new files you created with Rhino 7, as I suppose the Beta version will expire soon: Rhino 7 final is already out and being sold.

Have a nice day.

Thanks. I officially own Rhino5. More than one person at McNeel told me to evaluate 6 until 7 came out, since there will be significant improvements in 7. I was ready to sign up for 6 again with a new email (as suggested by McNeel employees) and 7 became available to evaluate, so I downloaded it. It appears that 6 is no longer available as an evaluation. Hmmm. Is my only choice to keep using 7 even though it is painful? Detail: There is a separate upgrade price for 6 and 7. For some reason, if I upgraded to 6 it is necessary to pay the same significant upgrade price for 7. I was waiting to pay for 7 as suggested by employees of McNeel. Might need to call McNeel on Monday.
