Normalize Control Sizes slows down application


My app contains hundreds of controls and 65 pages in Page Panel.

When I build my app with normalize control sizes option the result is extremely slow. Switching from one Textfield to another or changing the value of PagePanel is extremely slow. User experience is getting really bad.

When i build my app without normalize control sizes option the execution speed is normal.

I made 2 video captures so you can see the speed difference :

Using Xojo 2020R2.1 and Ubuntu 20.04.

Will the Xojo team fix this problem ?

Have you continued to see this?

One thing that you could do is add the modGTK module directly to your code and NOT use the Normalize option in the IDE.

You can still grab the modGTK project parts here:

The normalize option is ModGTK, so…

Just checking …
