Description

I am trying to browse to some folders containing 100s of layers (mainly Mapinfo tab files) through QGIS panel. The scanning takes a long time and slows down QGIS to almost an unusable state.
Note that I am using QGIS on a VDI.

The work-around is to hide the folder from scanning.

Does it happen also on 3.*?

#2 Updated by Paolo Cavallini about 2 years ago

AFAIK this has always been so. Do you find previous versions faster?

#3 Updated by Saber Razmjooei about 2 years ago

I have noticed it only under QGIS 2.18. It is specific to the VDI and works fine on the normal OS.

hi Gio, yes. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure.It is a common method these days within some large organisations.
