When performing a right-click on a model or container in Spectrum OneClick running on macOS Sierra (10.12.x), the menu does not appear instantly as in the past but can take many seconds (maybe 5 or 6), slowing responsiveness.



Spectrum 9.4.x and 10.x macOS Sierra Java 8




When a Java app calls the class, it attempts a reverse lookup of this address and checks that it maps back to the input host name and this slows it down when its not explicitly defined in the /etc/hosts file of macOS Sierra.




To resolve this, explicitly name the mac in the /etc/hosts file? For example, if his Mac's host name is macPro, then, list it as; localhost macPro.local 
::1       localhost macPro.local
