Please make sure your system has properly-configured OpenGL graphics drivers. If OptiSurface Designer appears to be slow and unresponsive, it is likely that your system needs updated video drivers.  See Resolving Crashing and Graphics Issues for details on how to update your computer's graphics driver.
