Description of the issue : When clicking on the select path tool in order to choose a curve group, Skatter/Sketchup hangs before choosing anything and never recovers.
Are you able to reproduce the issue every time? (If yes, how?) : Every time in a complex scene I have - it is ok on a new empty file – so I’m thinking does Skatter try to cache all available path groups or something before you can click and select one?
Skatter doesn’t cache the whole model, but when the picking tool is active, it scans every object you put your mouse on, to display on screen a preview of what you are about to pick.
If you hover an object that contains loads and loads of geometry, you might experience this. You can hide these complicated objects when picking the curve.
Bumping this - I have taken to grouping the geometry I want to scatter, plus the grouped path together, as even on a simple model this is a massive issue. I often want to duplicate a skatter group (to replace scattered geometry with something else altogether) - so hiding this beforehand isn’t an option.
