drag and move is super slow

hi there--i basically have a 320 x 480 prototype with a wide 1850 x 120 image in it. i've added a Drag event to the image (Move, With Cursor, Axis X).


the problem is how slow and unresponsive the drag is in both the simulation and the HTML version on my iPhone. when it moves, it is very choppy.

Hi,


could you send your prototype to jim.support@justinmind.com?


thanks

sorry--just determined we were dealing with an inordinately large source graphic :/

In the old days of desktop publishing we had to greek and ungreek images or large text areas when applying layout changes due to RAM and CPU limitations. This should not be the case now. If your graphic is more than half of your RAM then it might be. This is very unlikely and it seems to be how JIM is handling data and objects that is the problem. I have posted a similar problem with a relatively small csv causing JIM to hang when trying to move a control populated with it's data and have not received a satisfactory answer from the JIM team, just a suggestion that it was a RAM issue. I have also noticed that when you select multiple controls with multiple events that moving the control takes ages. Clearly all issues here are related. Possibly also related to the exponential slowdown of JIM as your project grows that has been reported on the forum and has become evident with my work.

Sorry, I have just realised that you are describing a problem with the simulation whereas my problem is in the JIM GUI. Still might be related though.

the graphic was way too large for this case, but not outside the realm of possibility either. some optimization throughout would be well received--the application in general could be more "slippery"

Hi! I'm trying to simulate the movement of dragging an icon on a Desk computer. Is there any possibility to control the movement speed? I'm using 'drag + move with cursor' and it moves really slow and looks not natural.

Thanks for your help!

Unfortunately no, there's no way to control the drag speed when moving with your cursor.
