Slow window redraw?

I'm using IDEA 5.0 with the default JVM. I added -Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true to idea.exe.vmoptions. IDEA is running as a maximized window.

Whenever I switch away from IDEA to another app and then back to IDEA, there's a long pause before IDEA is ready to go (we're talking 5-10s). What's going on there and is there any way to reduce that pause?

Hello Andy,

You might try un-checking the "synchronize files on frame activation" option
(especially if you're dealing with a large project). You'll find the option
in Settings/IDE/General.

HTH,
Andrei

Thanks! That fixed the problem. What does that mean afa file synch goes? Will it do it at regular intervals? Can I force synch if I know files have changed?

You can click the little orange recycling logo in the toolbar to synchronize.
