I have heard that Foldit runs faster when you move the protein off the screen and minimize the Foldit Window. Is this true? If so, it would be nice if there were a button that would move the protein off-screen (a bit like the Home button but in reverse). Often on De-novo Freestyle Puzzles for large proteins (like Puzzle 1438), it takes multiple mouse swipes to move the protein off the screen. Having a button do this all at once would be helpful.

Thanks!

I thought minimizing the window was enough.

bertro, I don't understand your response.
Can you write more to clarify what you mean?

Thanks,
Jeff

Sorry, I did not finish my sentence. I meant to say:

On PC, Foldit runs faster when you minimize the Foldit Window (no need to move the protein off screen).

On Mac, I don't know how it behaves.

Or better yet just have a toggle option for a "loading screen" that'll achieve the same effect.
