    Thread: LDD is dead?
Post: Re: LDD is dead?

The LDraw.org site needs a massive facelift - there are a lot of articles that haven't been updated in years. The tutorials are all MLCAD based. There's no "how to get started with LDraw" that support...

    Thread: Slowness of LPub on Windows 7
Post: Re: Slowness of LPub on Windows 7

I got it running on my Mac and it works great .. in fact I get better PDF results on the Mac with LPub than on Windows! I would expect it to be the same. I used the PDF to OpenOffice Draw plugin to lo...

Post: Re: Slowness of LPub on Windows 7

The way I use unofficial parts is to import them into the MPD file, so I don't think that's relevant. Only official parts are imported from my parts library.

I even tried it on a FAT-formatted USB-mounted disk, hoping that getting out of NTFS-land would fix it, but it still seems quite slow.

Post: Re: Slowness of LPub on Windows 7

To reiterate - I downloaded the version you linked to, and ran it in My Documents instead of Dropbox, and had no major improvement in perceived speed. There might have been some improvement but if so ...

    Thread: LPub bug - "don't show this step" and cache
Post: LPub bug - "don't show this step" and cache

In LPub when I hide a step (e.g. after a buffer exchange there's a step with no changes that can be hidden) the subsequent steps get renumbered, and as a result the assembly images are off by one. The...

Post: Re: Slowness of LPub on Windows 7

Yes, but Dropbox is asynchronous - it's a normal filesystem that Dropbox monitors for changes, not a mounted filesystem.

    Thread: LPub temp files directory
Post: LPub temp files directory

Is there any way to control where LPub puts its temp files? I keep my files in Dropbox.com and whenever I run LPub it generates a subfolder with temp files (image caches, etc) which automatically get ...

OK maybe it's a little faster ... but still a pretty long delay to render.

Nope, it's still about the same. I didn't time it, but it doesn't seem to be any faster.

Post: Re: Slowness of LPub on Windows 7

Maybe Windows thinks it requires admin privileges because it writes files? Does it write temp files in a directory that might be protected? It doesn't give me that dialog box to continue when a privil...

Post: Slowness of LPub on Windows 7

Ever since I was issued a new laptop from work and installed lpub on it, it takes ages to do any kind of render operation. I am guessing there's some security setting in Windows that has to time out e...
