'go'ing to different layouts

Recommended Posts

I see a big difference in the way Macs and PCs handle 'go to layout' commands and wonder if there's something I can do.

I have scripts that visit multiple layouts while processing the data. On the MAC, only the 'Original' layout shows on the user's screen while all the 'go to's take place 'behind the scenes'.

When I run the same scripts on a PC, each of the layouts gets displayed while the script is processing data on that layout. It creates a very herky-jerky, unacceptable, user interface.

Short of getting all my users to buy MACs (not very likely), how can I control the undesired layout displays while the script is processing on the PCs?

TIA

Se if this solves your problem:

But perhaps the time scripting actually takes is due to incomplete normalization of the datastructure, since the writing to fields is what takes time.

Looks like it should do the trick. I'll try it!

Thanks.
