    RH7 extremely slow when typing text


      We're running RH 7 to maintain an approximate 1,000 topic project that resides on a server, not locally on a PC (this is a requirement for corporate backups). Typing text in RH has become a nightmare - there was a 47 second delay in typing the words "click to launch"...that's 47 seconds after the last keystroke until the first letter appeared. This has caused quite a backlog of work on maintaining our project and frustration.


      I tried the Adobe-recommended download of a new iWYSIWG.dll file as well as dumping all but critical fonts. The typing is just as slow. We've been using RH since it was a baby but we're ready to start looking for RH alternatives (like Madcap) unless we can resolve this issue. Any ideas out there that we can try?

          If you run your project from a server, slow responses are the least of your worries. Wait until your project corrupts or refuses to compile.


          Adobe produce the software and they advise against running the project from a server. What most people do is put a zip copy of the project on the network after working on it. That way it gets backed up.
