"Selected object layer" in V8 is slow

Hi McNeel’ies
The “Selected object layer” on the (right side of the) status bar is super slow in comparison to V7, where it’s close to instantaneous - see video. Sometimes it takes 3-4 seconds to update, and that can seem like a loooong time :slight_smile: I know the exact same info is available in the layer section of the status bar, but I like that you can see the full name and layer path of the object. And “Selected Object Layer” is the only option checked in both instances.


Hi @Normand,

I’ve logged an issue so we can look into what you’ve reported.


I know we update this pane lazily, so as not to consume too many CPU cycles. Perhaps it’s a bit too lazy.
