Slow application launch

On my Mac (specs see below) it takes approx. 9s for EagleFiler to launch and display a library window. This is with a fresh and completely empty library. (Opening the library with EF already running takes 1.5s.)

Why is it so slow? Are there any preferences I can set to accelerate the app launch?

EagleFiler 1.7.3

Model Name: Mac mini
Model Identifier: Macmini6,2
Processor Name: Intel Core i7
Processor Speed: 2.6 GHz
Number of Processors: 1
Total Number of Cores: 4
Memory: 16 GB
Chipset Model: Intel HD Graphics 4000

Probably not. It’s a known issue that EagleFiler can be slow to launch. It’s currently loading a lot of code and doing a lot of “extra” work at launch. There is overhead from libraries that EagleFiler is using and from a workaround that I added to work around bugs in them. The long-term plan is to stop using these libraries, which will make EagleFiler much faster.

OK, thanks for the info.

Great :slight_smile:
