Hi,

My company recently upgraded from 2008 to 2010. What i've found is that the editor is horribly slow. Tabbing between files takes seconds, and just scrolling around or typing feels really unresponsive.

The solution file we are working with has 50-100 projects and thousands of source files.

Source control used is Perforce. (in 2008 we used niftyperforce, but in 2010 the srouce control integration works)

Language is c++.

What i've done to speed it up a bit is disabling intellisense and installing the visual assist plugin (which beats intellisense anyway)

It still feel very sluggish and unresponsive, and i cant really belive it should act like this. So i'm asking here, in the hopes that any of you guys have any tips or tweaks i can do to make it better.

Have you checked the status bar? usually when VS starts to chug for me, it is because intelesense/VAX is "refreshing" its databases. There isn't much of a way around it other than waiting it out, or disabling it.

Can you break that up a bit? Less files/solutions in the project means less things for the IDE to deal with. If you don't need it all loaded at once, just unload the other projects.

hi,
same problem here its not exactly slow but feels not as fast as '08 as you said responsivness suffers. i am using a two monitor setup (none of them turned) 24"@1920x1280 and an HDTV at 720p. the switch to the wpf is probably the problem.

I've heard it alleged that they've rewritten a lot of the UI components from C/C++ to C#/.net type ones, and they haven't really had time to do the optimisation stuff.

This is a reason why the editor doesn't support all the compatibility modes that the old one does. (no emacs! **Schniff**)
