I often have Microsoft Word and Xojo open at the same time. Sometimes when working in Word, it effects Xojo. An example is when adjusting a table in Word, Xojo flickers. When the Word file is larger in size (about 400 pages), I am almost not able to work in Microsoft Word because both Word and Xojo are running very slow.
Here is a video of modifying the table width in Word and causing Xojo to severely flicker:
Closing MS Word will increase the speed of the Xojo IDE, and closing the Xojo IDE will increase the speed of MS Word. To create this issue, open a new instance of MS Word, a new instance of Xojo 2016 r4.1, add a table and adjust the table.
I am taking a wild guess that both programs are using the same thread? Is there a way to prevent these two programs from using the same thread so that I can run Xojo and MS Word at the same time? Any other suggestions are appreciated
This is on Windows 10, Xojo 2016 r4.1, MS Word 2016, Surface Book with lots of ram and Hard Drive space.
