CONNECT SPEED - Users are STOP using CE


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.

  • CE opening times are a horendous
  • File Navigation is a horendous

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>!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Some tools in CE works much faster. For example create region tool(see video).

    On the other hand the tendency for years have been that program startup is slower and slower.  Adding online resources at startup makes it even worse because now it waits also on HTTP reply. It should be like background task but for some reason  it doesn't work like that. Similar is when attaching WMS from slow WMS server it freezes until the WMS is loaded but it shouldn't be so.

    For example executing a key-in scripts which places lines and text now the same script take much longer time with each new version:

    Running specific key-in script in CE:

    Normal - ~420sec

    View minimized/accudraw closed - 280sec

    in V8i SS3:

    Normal - ~270sec

    View minimized – 152sec

    Accudraw and tools closed  - 70sec


    In v8 XM:

    Normal(with or without accudraw) - ~115sec

    View minimized – 95sec


    In v8 2004:

    Normal(with or without accudraw) - ~52sec

    View minimized – 42sec

    Mainly it shows how responsive is GUI as these key-ins are using standard tools.
