FS#779 - Turning detailed view on/off

My system: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU 650 @ 3.20GHz and 8 GB of RAM and NVIDIA GT218 (GeForce 210)

For a normal drawing displaying it in all detail is a good thing and the performance of my quad-core system is more than adequate.

But I discovered (or rather experienced) that when putting a large collection of individual drawings of gears onto one big sheet (960 mm x 600 mm - preparation for laser cutting), the performance was so bad that I had to wait several seconds (>10 sec) for each step in the process of arranging all the parts on the layer.

Request: It would be a big help and performance booster if you could disable the detailed view of each part/layer and only draw a rectangle to visualize the outline of the part.

Please take this in consideration. Attached you find an example of how that could look like. (Actually when pasting a drawing from the clipboard you already do that.)

An additional thought: It would be nice to be able to turn details on/off for individual parts/blocks/layers.

Yes Christian I experience this often too when setting up files for laser cutting.
Another great suggestion, my votes in!

keep up the suggestions;)

Never mind - I was trying to delete my comment but I'm not able to do that by myself ...... :-(

How can I delete a comment or an attachment? The "Delete" option for the attachment is not working!
