Saving xap can take a long time when data, which is just used to make the IDE more useful, is included.
I'm trying to get a better understanding of the issue that you are having. Can you expand on what you mean?
this was to address slow xap loading at runtime. my xap takes almost 10s. part of this is because the data is saved in the spec too many times. it might be part how i configured xap. earlier it was because the data for the merge gates inputs were being saved in the spec automatically with no way to take them off. this is now changed. what this ticket is requesting is a complete separation of the data in the component inputs from the xap and component spec file. this would allow me to choose to run the xap 'clean' with no stored data and with the stored data.
