BENTLEY... URGENT URGENT URGENT
This has been raised many times by many people in this forum, including myself
We are now at CE9 and this is STILL AN ISSUE
I have many clients that I am trying to get to use CONNECT....
They are ALL saying........
WE CANNOT USE CONNECT because it is SO SO SO SO SLOW. Their same files in V8i are super fast.
If you compare CE to V8i... users will opt for V8i every time, V8i is literally is a fraction of time. User cannot and will not wait for 2-5 minutes to open the software, they will not wait to open another dgn file. So not matter how hard we try to convince them CE is the way forward... they simply say NO.
THIS IS NOW A CRITICAL ISSUE and BENTLEY you seriously need to get this FIXED ASAP.
As I mentioned we are now at CE9 and this issue is still present.........its beyond a joke.
In my opinion... stop working on anything else and get the speed issue fixed or you will not have any users left to use it. Its only a matter of time before you lose them and they start using ACAD!!!!!!!
PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE THIS>!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We do know that one source of the slowness is caused by the model picker from the Open page on the backstage. We are currently investigating and working on a resolution to this for the MicroStation CONNECT Edition 10 timeframe. We are still investigating other sources of slowness that have been mentioned on Bentley Communities as well and trying to track those down in order for us to resolve them as well in future updates.
I understand... just wish it was sooner rather than later... its getting very difficult to promote CE when it is buggy
We completely understand and we are diligently working on improving the user experience with MicroStation CONNECT Edition in order to address these issues.
