Hello,
I love DragThing, but recently it looks like choking a bit on the first click.
I think that's due to AppNap. Although I deactivated it, it still looks like having to wake up.
The reason might be that DragThing is still 32bit.
So is there a chance for a clean 64bit version in the near future?
Thanks
Q.

Do you have any spinning disks? It might be waiting for those to spin up. A 64-bit version will require a complete ground-up rewrite, so not in the near future certainly. PCalc keeps me pretty busy these days and is paying my bills!

No, I just starts slow after the first click, after that it works as before.
I guess you are aware that Apple will throw out non-64bit apps in the near future ;-)
So please don't let long time users hang, they payed your bills before ;-)
cheers

I believe they will start in over a year, but it is not clear what will happen yet. We shall see! I cannot promise anything at this stage.
