Rhino 7 selection feels sticky?

Is anyone else finding object selection to be kind of sticky/clunky in 7? It seems to hang for a little bit before it actually grabs the object, It didn’t use to feel like this. Perhaps its just my machine (or my imagination…) but, it used to be much more snappy

Hi Natalie -
There’s very little to go on in your description…
If you post the result of the Rhino SystemInfo command, perhaps that will tell us something.

sorry if that was a bit vague, its hard to describe…
My machine is pretty basic but, I’m not working on anything particularly heavy.

Hi - it seems like you have left out the bottom part of that report.
Apart from that, does it matter what type of object you are trying to select?
Does it also happen with, for example, just a single line in a new file from a factory-default template?

ah, the rest was just a list of plugins I left off… I didn’t think it was important, sorry about that
Yes, I get that slight hanging behavior regardless of file size, complexity etc

Hi Natalie -

It’s not uncommon for “plugins that do not ship with Rhino” to interfere with things. I see that you don’t have any but, that, I didn’t know : )

At any rate, there’s nothing that is sticking out as a problem in that report.
You could try the 7.6 release candidate and there probably is a newer driver for the NVIDIA GPU but I’m not sure if that is going to make a difference. Are we talking about milliseconds or seconds here?

we’re talking a few milliseconds (which I know sounds silly but, at the moment I work in rhino, all day, every day), its causing me to mis-click, have trouble making selections… its just mildly annoying in the background constantly wasting little bits of time (especially when its coupled with the ghastly way rhino highlights selected objects)
an example is,
i’m trying to move something that’s lined up near a scanned mesh, I click, it hangs, I move the mouse ever so slightly and select the wrong thing, the mesh gets selected, and the screen is filled with a zillion mesh edges, I have to to tap escape to back out of everything and try again, I’ve wasted seconds on something that should have been a quick point and click… so, you’d naturally say “disable mesh selection first” but that, again, means a bunch more movements and clicks every time i want to select anything, turning things off and on, all day every day, to pick something and move it…
anyway, thanks for your time and sorry for my rant…
(and for the love of all that is good in this world, please change the way selected objects are displayed…especially meshes, its terrible. I love rhino, I use it a lot but, yikes.)
