How AR3 keep hanging and how I learned to overcome it
Hi! I upgraded to AR3.0.5 SP and it keeps hanging in my Mac the same as the Demo did: after a number (say...10) of size or other settings changes, the app. hangs out; proprietary cursor is missing and the regular OSX one takes its place. I can still open sections (not sure its name:File, Edit, etc) but nothing is active; everything is gray (see screen captures). I have to close the app. (which still prompts me to save the work) and restart. This behavior is more frequent while standing or right clicking with the stylus to enter a size number manually; I can hear the characteristic noise and then...nothing at all.
I took these steps:
1) pull the .prs file of AR2.5 to the bin
2) pull the AR2.5 settings in the Wacom Intuos3, 6.1.2-5 driver out
3) unmarked the Sounds and Animations cheks in the AR3 Preferences panel
The hanging became less frequent but was still there.
An then, the miraculous (intermediate) solution:
4) I set the keyboard shortcuts for Size and Pressure (Shift+arrows) and changed these items all to the 500% distant frontier and back any number of times without problem.
Does it make sense to you? I hope yes.
