Latency (when dimensioning)

Hi Guys, 

The only thing that bothers me about Onshape right now is the time it takes from inserting a new dimension, to being able to enter a number. I shouldn't have to wait for the graphics to catch up, before being allowed to enter new data.

I am used to inserting a dimension, immediately punching in a number, then pressing enter - I often stumble, when defining simple sketches in Onshape and have to sit and wait for the dimension input box to appear.

Would it be possible to have something like a 'Local Command Buffer' - so I can merrily enter dimension data, without having to wait for graphics to catch up?

    @grant_riley  We are actively working on something right now that would resolve this.  No promises on when it will be released but know that we are aware of this delay and hope to have a faster solution soon.
