Strange 2018.4 Behavior? Messages pre-populate?

Anyone else notice in 2018.4 that when you drag a module onto a blank canvas, the first thing that happens is the messages window pre-populates with all the info about all the tools in the module?  In some cases, it takes up to a few seconds.  Kind of annoying.  Wonder if it's only me.

Try disabling the Auto Configure in the Advanced Tab of the User Settings.  This will stop Alteryx from auto validating/updating tools as they are dropped.  This should speed it up for you.

Hi Scott,


Yes, that is true, but do you have any insight as to why 2018.3 didn't do this, but 2018.4 does (assuming it can be recreated)?

I can re-create it, but I do not know what was changed on the backend to cause it.  Looking at the Release Notes, it does not mention it specifically, but one of these fixes could be the culprit.

Great, thanks for confirming it's not just me :)

How do I submit it as what I'll call a possible unintended consequence? Not a huge deal, but I think it should at least be put on list somewhere.
