Question about image management in Designer


I have started to develop my project in Ignition and I have reached a stage when I have a lot of images added to image management. This causes slow performance when starting image management in my designer. I noticed that splitting it into smaller folders helps and it starts up faster.

My question is this the only way? Is it possible to speed it up otherwise. These subfolders can also fill up and creating new ones will change the paths in my screens....

My PC fan is running like a blower while running this tool....


How many images is "a lot"? What version of Ignition are you using? What CPU are you using? Java Swing has basically no hardware acceleration, so it's all CPU-bound drawing, so building the thumbnails in the Designer might be relatively "expensive", but I don't think I've ever heard anyone complain about this before, so I'm interested in your environment and what you're doing.
