Typing in Playmaker Editor SLOW
« on: September 07, 2020, 03:57:22 AM »
For the past weeks I've been having a very annoying problem. Typing in the editor has become horribly slow. If I'm typing the name of a state or FSM or the description it shows what I've typed at the rate of about one character per second (I tested it with a stopwatch.) This is leading to a lot of errors, slowing development and making me wonder what could have happened. Hope someone has some insights.

I'm using: Playmaker 1.9.0p20 in Unity 2019.4.1f1

Hi.
if you have many fsms on an object, collapsing fsms in inspector can help.
also in the player preferences you can find some setting to increase performance.

djaydino...first of all the project doesn't have too many FSMs especially compared to previous projects. Second, I tried a brand new projects and in the first FSM it is almost as slow as in my working project. Interestingly enough nothing else in Unity is running slowly. When I do anything else in the project it works like normal.

Hi.
Most of the time its because of many fsms or lost of states in a fsms so thats why i asked and explained...

Just tested on a clean scene but not on 2019.4.1f1 maybe its only on this version.
If so its best to do a bug report you can find it in the playmaker tab under 'Help'

Try resetting the unity window layout to a default layout. Sometimes a tool window or third party utility can steal focus away, slowing down typing. Resetting the layout then adding windows back can help track down the culprit.

Hey Alex,

Thanks for the reply and sorry for the delay posting. I tried going to the Default view and ONLY added the Playmaker Editor and I'm still getting the same delay. Any other suggestions?
