When adding terms with ctrl+F2, it takes a long time for the termbase window to pop up - right now it's taking more than a minute. Haven't noticed this problem before. Does anyone know if it's an update issue or what?

Same problem reported on the Yahoo mailing list Oct 16, 2013

Such slowness has been reported in a thread labeled Studio 2014: Is there a way to speed up adding a term to project termbase in the Editor view? on the Yahoo mailing list:

Thanks Oct 16, 2013

I think there's already been a thread about it on here, too, though I can't find it at the moment.

I've just updated my Java, so I was wondering if it's that. It's making my termbase unusable at the moment.

Undock term base window Mar 14

For the case anybody still reads this thread, I found a solution for this problem:

- Undock the term base window so that it is an indipendent window
- Change the layout of that window to "Flags layout"
- Unpin that window so that it is in the background

This worked for me.
