Text Field in LC 7

I am not happy raising this because it may not be well received but here goes.

I have been testing modTableField with Bernd and noticed when testing in LC 7.0.3 that when enlarging the table field through the geometry preferences when it contained a lot of data the dragging of the window corner to resize it stuttered and was not smooth.

At this point I would say that LC in my experience does not have the smoothest drag to resize I have seen but in this situation it was not good.

So, to test further, I copied the data from modTableField, created a test stack containing only a field and pasted the data into that field.

I linked the field to the stack size via. the geometry settings and found that the stack stuttered when resizing.

This may fall into the lack of performance area that Richard Gaskin was asking about so I have placed this simple test stack on DropBox.

It can be found here:

I am running Yosemite on an 2.9 GHz iMac i5.

Please test and confirm.

Thanks

Terry
