I'm working on a print image for a client at 300dpi. I noticed when I re-opened the so-far 60MB file this morning, it took about a minute or so for the file to open ... in the meantime, it was hard to tell if ArtRage had hung or failed or whatnot.
I know you guys are working on memory optimization and efficiency and such ... In the meantime (or in the long term) would it be difficult to put a process status bar (much like the current 'save' bar) when opening or importing very large files? I don't know the inner workings of what the system's doing at that point, so I don't know how easy or doable that is.
Of course, this isn't a deal-breaking suggestion or anything. Just a useful thought.
Thanks for all the hard work, guys ... looking forward to future versions as always
