How come loading reports (from database) slows down after having used the
Designer on anyone report?
At first it loads in 1 sec. After Designer it uses more than 10 secs!

(Running the app from Delphi or stand-alone)

    Could be that all of the Design Controls are getting created each time you

    As an experiment, try this:

    ppDesigner1.Report := nil;


    ppDesigner1.Report := ppReport1;

    and see if the delay goes away...

    That makes the difference.

    I keep
    ppDesigner.Report = nil

    all the time and just before the user starts the Designer I do

    ppDesigner.Report := myReport;
