scrolling trough tab's freezes maya

Hi Guys,

I have a wierd issue with Maya for quit a while now.
normaly i just take the work around but im fed up with that now after so long.

when I have object selected and I go to the Atribute editor, then I to go to the last tab ( the texture) so I use the > icon to go to the right to get to the tab.
When im at the end of the line ( so I cant go any further on the right tabs) Maya freezes up.
this happens also in the rendersettings when I go all the way to the right, to the option tab. ( with MR)
The wierd thing is that when I swith to an other program and back to maya it is working again.
If i dont do this it will take up to 40 sec before maya unfreezes automaticly.
So basicly all the time when I scroll trough the tabs and i reach the last tab, Maya freezes.
I had this problem with Maya 2012 and now again with 2013.
My coworker doesnt have the problem. and we do have 2 identical machines.

did any one run into this same problem?

Yup, same here from Maya 2011 to 2013.5. Drives me nuts sometimes. I've started using scripts to jump to the material tab to avoid it but I also get it with any object that has a lot of inputs/outputs. Simply clicking through the tabs in the Attributes editor will often freeze Maya up for 20-30 seconds.

Interesting your friend doesn't get it though.. I wonder what's different about their install? Win 7 64 here BTW.

Luckily I haven't had that problem, too. I do that a lot :(
  01 January 2013
well we both have win 7 maya 2013 SP2.
and exact the same software for the rest on the workstions.

Maybe a graphics driver issue? Check if you have the same version.

I dont have it here with maya2012.

there is indeed a diverence in our drivers...
but that is because she has a newer card. ( i just found out )
I have the Nvidea Quadro FX3800 and she has the 4000 version.
we updated the driver but still the same problem.

I just noticed she has Nvidea Quadro FX4000 card
and I have the Nvidea Quadro FX3800 card

We updated the 3800 driver but still the same problem.

Yeah...since QT. The only thing I can suggest is that you can right-click on the <> bit in the AE and you get a list of nodes displayed which you can jump straight to.

Are you using a mouse or wacom pen to click on the > tabs?

I noticed at work that when Inuse the Wacom pen to click the tabs it often freezes. I believe this is a wacom issue, but not sure.

If you use a mouse then it is probably something else that I havent seen.

^ I use a Wacom here, so maybe that is a factor. Seems weird though as I'd have thought a click with a pen should have the same effect as a click with a mouse?

Heh, never noticed that option, that's certainly a lot better than clicking/freezing and waiting. Thanks.

Never once seen this before on any Maya install on OSX or Linux, tablet or mouse. Sounds like a nasty one. Have you guys logged it with AD?
Maybe avoid using <> it for the time being and keep a HyperGraph open.

yes we do all have this issue since Qt which is a known one by autodesk, normally it's been corrected, but it still happen when you have a lot of input to scroll through haven't find anywork around it so far, and it's super anoying.
thanks for the tip I'll check it out.

I have a new system working with Maya 2012, Wacom intous 3 and for the first time a Quadro k4000 GPU and i'm having the same freezing issue in the AE tabs. (as well as some other if you wanna try to help : (

I think it's like a Quadro-Wacom conflict or something..

any progress with it? I would really love to get some hints to how to solve it!

  11 November 2013
yes back then i used the inuos 4 wacom.

Now I use the intuos 5 touch and upgraded the 4000fx to a K4000 but still i have the problem. Did a few simple tests here and it is indeed the wacom... :(
but i love that thingy...
