No, and it's not slow, it's frozen. I've let it sit there for 5+ minutes. I suspect this is a java issue, not a jmol one. While googling I've seen old reports of similar behavior in other programs and browsers -- but those were old versions of Java and that doesn't explain why this just started happening. It's not a huge deal because I script most things, so "load" suffices. Just weird.
do you have hundreds of files in that directory? Sometimes that can slow it down.On Fri, Feb 7, 2014 at 1:08 PM, James <email@example.com> wrote:
Hi Robert,Thanks for the suggestion. I do have a VPN set up, but no mapped drives, so I looked into that a little but it did not seem to be involved.One other observation: The "load" command works from the console. Is the "open" button in the GUI doing something different than "load"? I guess it is, because even if a successful "open" results in a "load" command in the end, "open" has the additional process of browsing to the desired file, and since the file browser never comes up, it's not getting to the load command.Sincerely,

I have had general delays with Windows 8 when I had previously had a network file directory mapped, closed my computer, then opened it and tried to look at a menu -- with Java or otherwise. It was very very slow to connect, presumably because it was repeatedly trying to connect with a no longer connected VPN. Just a thought.
