File Open Dialogs really slow to appear and navigate

Hi,

i was wondering if anyone else had this problem. It seems as if IDEA falls asleep whenever i do a file open, or click "..." (to open a file open dialog; when it does open, sometimes you click a folder and it pauses again before navigating to the folder. Nothing seems broken, its just highly annoying.

I am using build 695 on XP - but i have observed this behavior on and off since i started using idea (around build 62X).

Does anyone know why this may happen?

Thanks,
Trevor

It appears to attempt to access the floppy drive while navigating in the
file open dialog. Sticking a floppy into the drive speeds it up, but
there must better ways.

it's really interesting why the dialog in idea do this. because the standart file open dialog in java is a little bit faster, i think!?

Hi Trevor,

Check that any network shares you have are properly logged in. I think the
falling asleep is roughly equal to the length of time it takes the share to
timeout.

worked for me anyway.

Kevin,

do you mean network shares in general (connections i just happen to have 'remembered' by XP) or shares that Idea might access?

i.e., are you suggesting that it may take a while to bring up and navigate in the dialog because of network shares, even though i never have idea navigate into those shares? perhaps idea is trying to get FileHandles to those drives and it just takes a while cuz some of them may not be properly configured (depending on my env)? I do have alot of subsituted drives that idea needs to navigate..(subst command in windows)....

Thanks,
Trevor
