I wonder how they can “fix it” if our internet connections just take that long to download all of the instructions on complex files? Would everyone prefer to see a blank screen until it has completed downloading? I don’t think I would.
I actually prefer to watch the motion pattern as it develops. Occasionally I’ll make a change based on what I see popping up, if I don’t want to wait for the whole thing to load up first. I’ll frequently shift a print by a step or two if it looks too close on the preview. Another thing that I’ve done is modify a design if it was taking too long to load - there are usually ways to split it up or change some colors if the interface is having too much trouble with it, that wind up saving time in the long run.
An example was the sybaritic hilbert curve that was shared - I split that up into colors and processed one section at a time.
Made for convenient bathroom/lunch breaks. I’d hate to lose that functionality.
I only ever had a job fail to fully load once. After that I knew to wait until it loaded on complex designs. Just doesn’t seem like a big value added adjustment to me, and might actually remove some of the features that I use when I’m designing.
