Maestro is slow to rotate structures. Is there anything I can do?
First, ensure that you are displaying to a local machine, and not over a network.
Second, ensure that your display machine has a graphics card and a driver that supports hardware-accelerated OpenGL and that this feature is enabled and the driver is up to date.
Third, ensure that you are not running a large number of applications, and using up all the memory on your machine.
If your structure is large, try to minimize the number of graphical objects that must be displayed, for example by undisplaying labels and displaying a selection of atoms instead of the entire structure. See KB article 1284 for more information.
In versions of Maestro prior to 8.0, local rotation of structures is slow when stereochemical labels are displayed and the structure contains a large number of atoms.
