Gimp 2.8 Windows 8 clone tool s-l-o-o-o-o-w
Hello,

I just got a new computer running Windows 8. It's a powerful machine (i7, 4 cores, 8 GB RAM, hybrid HD) and it's smoking fast on everything except Gimp's clone tool. The clone tool is so slow it's barely usable. Has anyone else run into this problem?

Thank you for any information you can offer.

For the slow clone tool, I'd submit a bug report with as much details as possible.

https://bugzilla.gnome.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=GIMP

Either that, or you can try installing win7 on your win8 machine. (there are tutorials online)
Unless you have a touch screen, windows 8 is designed with mobile in mind anyways.

Thanks. I'm not sure what the problem was but I managed to get it to work. Maybe I was running something in the background.

I can't downgrade to WIn7 unfortunately without purchasing it but I may consider that. I do actually have a touchscreen but don't really use it that much

Thanks for the reply.
