Lack of program feedback

I have a model that is linked to a large Oracle database. Most functions I perform seem to require Quantrix to go into a processing mode, which is fine except that it gives absolutely no indication that it is in that mode, it simply appears frozen. Can’t you guys program a spinning wheel or hourglass or something?

Of course, many programs can freeze while displaying their spinning wheel or whatever, but at least directly after you perform some command that requires processing you get the feedback that it might take a while, instead of leaving the program looking like it is ready to perform another task, which just encourages pointless clicking that queues up a bunch of mouseclicks that you may not want performed by the time the processing completes.

In order to determine how much memory Quantrix is using, you go to Tools > Options. Under the General category is the memory setting in Megabytes (MB). To see how much you are actually using in your model, start the Task Manager, click on the Processes tab and look for Quantrix Modeler. The memory reported here is in Kilobytes so you would divide that number by about 1000 to compare with the Quantrix setting. If you are within a hundred MB when that model is open, you probably should increase you memory setting.

Kind regards,
