Designer taking a while to open


We have recently upgraded to V2023.1 on a much higher spec server but I’ve noticed that designer seems very slow to open, and when you close everything and it goes back to the home screen that takes a while. However I’m wondering is this because it’s trying to connect to the internet for the online resources window


If so is there a way to turn this off so it doesn’t try doing it?


The Welcome Screen data is only fetched when the respective view is opened. The data is fetched async and should not block the application or affect the application start.

How does things behave when you launch the application by double clicking a template or datamapper config on the file system? In that case it will show the editor instead of the Welcome Screen so that would be an easy way to rule that out.
