Editor unresponsive, have to refresh every time I want to make a change

Hi,

 

I'm making an app which has some more sophisticated searching and filtering options. On the main screen, any changes I make now can render the editor unresponsive for minutes, many times I run out of patience and refresh the page.

I'm using SQL Server data sources, lookups for localization amongst other things.

The problem started when I tried writing filter formulas for the gallery on the main screen. Any changes in the formula could completely freeze up the editor, leaving me no choice but to edit the formula in an external text editor. Even then, when pasting the new formula, it could freeze.

 

I tried tweaking every app setting I could find, nothing makes a difference as of yet. The only experimental feature I'm using is the group control, which is essential. Could this be causing the problem?

Hi @benceb 

It might be worth trying a different browser to see if that makes a difference. A different browser might be able to parse/render whatever you type into into the formula bar more quickly.

Also, is the slowless in the editor specific to the app that you mention, or is it slow for every app that you want to edit?

I tried using Edge (instead of Chrome) to edit the app, but I get the same freezes.
I haven't really tried editing other apps, but I think it's specific to this one.

Hi @benceb are you still experiencing this issue?

Yes, although not to the extent I described earlier. I still have to wait a few minutes sometimes for filter formulas to parse.
