We often need to import polygons from GDS which have many vertices (>1000). This is very common for silicon photonic layouts, where polygons can be Manhattanized to meet certain DRC rules. However, the current version of the softwares (MODE/FDTD/DEVICE) does a very poor job displaying such polygons. The software gets extremely slow and hardly usable after importing the gds. We have to close all view windows to be able to click on any buttons or type anything in the script editor.
Can you please fix this issue in future update for all softwares? I believe the fix can be done by simply showing just enough points based on the current window resolution and zoom-in ratio. The softwares are really painful for us to use when it comes to actual GDS layouts. Looking forward to a better version.
