I am writing to report an issue that might plague a lot of us now that the whole world is working from home, it seems.
We’re observing huge lag when working on models that were previously worked at the office. I’ve narrowed it down to this:
Rhino is trying to find textures that were saved on our local server. It fails and eventually shows the “missing textures” panel. That’s 100% understandable.
Unfortunately that takes a lot of time, and any subsequent action involving said missing textures (for example selecting the material, or the object to change it) also leads to a long freeze.
The file doesn’t fail, so what I think is happening is that Rhino is looking for the server until whatever it’s doing times out, and then unfreezes.
Given that the issue is extremely widespread and that every action freezes Rhino, it’s almost impossible to do what I know would fix this, which is manually relink any missing texture to something else.
Can anyone think of something that might help?
Thank you all in advance!
