ScreenCalipers 3.1 is pegging CPU

Upgraded a few months back to SC3.1 because I used the older version A LOT.

When I run SC3.1, my CPU usage pegs and drags performance to a stumbling crawl. My workstation is a 2.7ghz, .5g ram with just a hand full of webdev apps running. --without SC running, my cpu idles at 10%.

Any insights would be gratefuly accepted.

Hi Micke,

You might want to try adjusting the setting under the 'quality' menu. If you have high or 'high with smooth edges' selected then drop back down to 'normal' and you should see an improvement. You should also exit and reopen the application after you do this and it will free up some more resources.

The high quality settings do take up more resources and they are doing some pretty hefty graphics manipulation behind the scenes.

If you have further problems then please post again.

That's due to the new message, it's actually above this one beneath your original post. I'll sort out the order code which is incorrect.

You may want to try downloading our new version 3.3. We've done a lot of work improving the speed of the application so that the high quality option does not slow down the machine.
