Hi, on the new version of desktop anki (2.1.28), I’m having trouble with some cards with large images or many images on them. It loads the text and then takes about 1-2 seconds to load the images.
My laptop is a dell xps 9570. I’ve tried with battery and plugged in mode. I’ve also tried with using the integrated gpu and forcing the gaming gpu. I’ve also tried toggling the hardware acceleration option.
I’ve disabled all add-ons and it’s the same thing.
If I go back to 2.1.26, everything works just fine and images are loading quickly.
I could look into configuring the waitress backend to use more CPU cores (if it does not do this already) and to use a bigger chunk size when serving files. If I remember correctly, the old backend just served the files all at once, i.e., without chucking them into peaces as flask is probably doing now. Then, increasing these chunk sizes to bigger value should cause the same behavior as the old server.
The alternate one works kind of like the older anki versions used to work. When I installed that, the font size of everything got much larger. Previously i had to set it to 120% because everything got smaller after one of the versions somewhere around after 2.1.10 or something. So I suppose the “alternate” version is very different.
Ya, I don’t know too much about the technical side of things. But as I’ve been testing for the last 30 or so minutes, I’m also getting some black boxes and bars with the .28 version. That reminds me of some issues that used to happen to me in the really old builds. Which makes it look like some gpu problem. Although the laptop is fairly new, from 2018 and I’ve tried both integrated and dedicated graphics for anki.
