Stickies takes too long to launch Empty Stickies takes too long to launch

on Sun Mar 03, 2019 10:00 pm
It takes my stickies 45 seconds to launch. Is this normal ? Crying or Very sad

Compacting the DB with ctrl-shift-c from Manage Stickies didn't reduce the launch time.

I have a total of 243 stickies - 44 of which are recurring and 4 on desktop.
My store.mdb file is only  233KB

It would be helpful if more users share their launch time + these details ?

That length of time doesn't sound right.  The next release of Stickies changes the way in which all data is stored, so that it's all in one file.  I'm not sure that will affect what you're seeing, though.

It might be interesting to take a copy of your data, and then by removing notes from that copy and launching the app, see what it is which causes the slowdown.  I know that having very many desktop notes can have an effect.

If I remember correctly, I did look at something for the next release which will help with launch times - I think someone wrote to me a while back reporting the same sort of delay, and I was able to spot and fix something.

To me 'Launch' is different from 'Full Load'.

When I start Stickies they come on the desktop pretty quickly (A couple of minutes or less.) and I can select and do some stuff.

But the 'Full Load' is when all CPU process' associated with Stickies "Settle-Down". Generally I'm using about 42% of my processor for about 5 minutes, then steps down about 10% at a time until less than 5%, that is when I consider Stickies fully loaded, and when I have no problems or stalls doing anything associated with Stickies.  

Thanks,
