I just downloaded EagleFile and imported a large-ish project folder from the Finedr in order to begin evaluating it. This folder contains both supported (PDFs, text files, images, etc.) and unsupported file types.
When I select a file from within EF, some unsupported formats (like VectorWorks) simply display an icon in the record viewer, while others (SketchUp, for example) are actually loaded into the record viewer. If I select a LARGE SketchUp file, then my CPU usage shoots up to 100% and EF appears to hang, requiring a force-quit. Smaller files will actually display a nonsense string in the record viewer and (apparently) allow me to ‘edit’ the content from within EF.
If I do not display the record viewer, then selecting a large SketchUp file will still cause EF to become unresponsive for 30sec or so. Still quite annoying when trying to tag files.
How does EF determine which files are loaded into the record viewer? Is there a way to ‘teach’ it not to do so for additional file types?
As it stands now, the app is pretty unusable if I have to force-quit every time I select certain file.
