Why the slow GUI in Max6? And how to improve?

I’m late to the show, but just upgraded from Max5 to Max6 (v6.0.3), and immediately notice that the GUI is pretty sluggish – even on my 2010 MacBook Pro (i5, 2.4Ghz, 4GB RAM, OS X 10.6.8).

Connecting patch cords seems slower than Max5, moving and creating objects likewise.

Is there anything I can do (except turning off overdrive) to improve things slightly?

hey,
I have about the big brother of your computer (i7, 2.66, 8gb ram, 10.6.8), and I don’t see any of the sluggishness in there. Our machines aren’t all that different, and I definitely think something else is afoot than a general problem within max.

It seems turning off overdrive and doing a reset helped – much better now, thanks!
