Designer slow - while editing symbols

Hi guys,

This happens on all my sites, so perhaps it´s my computer, but whenever I edit (double-click) one of my symbols I have created, the designer runs REALLY really slow. Like it takes around 5-7 seconds to select something else. And the mouse pointer freezes then suddenly appears where I´ve moved the mouse to and then freezes again.

If I unlink the symbol, the designer works fine again!

I´ve only got 1 Chrome tab open (webflow) and have an average PC (an old i7 with 12GB RAM). I´m not running any other programs or applications.

Is there any tricks for this? Or does anybody else have this problem?

Many thanks!


Hi @TerryHibbert

Thanks for posting this, this definitely sounds like odd behavior.

When did it start occurring? Can you send me the site Read-Only links please?

Please send me screenshots of the behavior you’re describing if possible?

Can you please try the following:
(1) Try to reproduce the error while being logged into Webflow using Incognito mode with browser extensions turned off:
(2) If the problem persists, please take a screenshot of your Console and send it to me:

Could you please let me know what browser version you’re using by sending me your information from this page?

There should be a small share link when you visit the page which you can send to me.

Thanks in advance!
