Origami extension cause Illustrator lag

Joshlac 3 years ago updated by Vitaly Ovchinnikov 3 years ago 3

When Origami app isn't running, Illustrator freezes(lags) for about 0.5s every 6-7s. 

After opening Origami app, freezes stop, same when I uninstall Origami extension.

Is this fixable? I use demo version of Origami rarely, but need to install/uninstall the extension every time to avoid the lags.

My info:

Illustrator 22.1 64bit

Windows 10 64bit

Origami 2.7.1

Under review

That's interesting. Actually, there's nothing that Origami does every 6-7 seconds at all. When Origami app is not running, the plugin tries to connect it, but it does this in background and it should affect the user interface at all. 

We'll double-check that area in the code, just to make sure, though.

Btw, from the top of my head: do you have a firewall software? Will it help if you temporary disable it?

Thanks Vitaly,

no, I don't have any firewall software installed and as I said the Illustrator lag disappears when I start the Origami app or when I uninstall the extension.


I believe we fixed this in 2.8: https://boxshot.com/2018/09/10/origami-2-8.html it would be nice if you can double-check this on your side.
