What I was agreeing about is the workaround fix, save and reload. It seems to happen when I have been working for a long time, lets say 30-60 minutes, maybe if I haven’t saved for 30 minutes or so when I get really involved. I haven’t really documented it.
“At times I have to wait just to resize panels. Clicking on symbols, expanding groups, changing seems all require a several seconds of the rainbow spinner.” I am not experiencing that like deanwhitney is.
Where it seems to happen in my case is when I have been working a long time, and I need to vertically drag the timeline and/or properties panes. I may have to wait 3-4 seconds. But not the spinning wheel of death. And a delay selecting type, and then waiting for the font panel to be able to edit. Often difficult.
In my case, it seems to me that the variable is the length of time I have been working on one file without saving or quitting.
I will send you the file when I get on that computer. What is interesting is that it is not a complex file at all. On this project I have very few animations, in fact none on this particular page.
I tend to use Hype even on pages that don’t have animations because of familiarity and overall, I think you have the best interface out there, it doesnt grind you into the ground with menu, sub-menu- sub-sub-sub-sub-menu like some apps or a content management system like Joomla. (I hate all of those) Or any app that models itself on the Quark publishing model ie Freeway, Responsive Site Design (although I am going to learn to like RSD for its capabilities,they are developing them faster than I can comprehend)
