FAQ Section: Performance Tuning
  1. How can I increase the amount of memory available to Poseidon?
  2. Why should I use the latest JDK 1.5?
  3. Why are big diagrams so much slower than small ones?
  4. Loading, Saving and Importing takes a lot of time
  5. How can I make Poseidon run faster?

    If you are working with Poseidon on a slow computer, then you might consider switching to the Metal look and feel instead of the standard "Poseidon/Alloy" Theme (in 'Edit/Settings.../Appearance').

  6. Note that some users of Poseidon 2.5.1 and earlier may experience a display problem with the Metal look and feel. See "How can I fix the toolbar display in the Metal look and feel?".
