Since installing 4.5, I continue to get the message "preparing the design mode for...., i.e., taking a long time." Fine, so I use the checkbox to say stop asking me this and No I don't want to continue rendering, but it keeps asking every few seconds. It's almost worse than the old method where things just slowed down for a bit. Any advice on how to get it to stop asking?
Same problem here. This is extremly annoying
I finally went to Windows and uncheck Enable Design Mode and all works great. I just turn on design mode when I really need to see the visual layout but while I'm coding it's great. Hopefully this will be fixed in 4.6.
What really should happen here is that the option should be named Auto Design Mode. If enabled the design is calculated in the background up on opening the MXML file. If disabled, the design should be calculated up on clicking the Design button. In any case the message has to be fixed.
