So you want a feature that delays the preview update by 2 seconds in order to be able to do several quick adjustments without making the preview update after each adjustment?

I could replace the Auto Preview check box with a combo box with different options or I could add a context menu to the Auto Preview check box to select the update time. I will see if I can add that in the upcoming Version 1.04.

I thought about it a bit more. Basically you can stop the automatic preview calculation by deactivating the Auto Preview check box and activating it again after you did the adjustments. Because you suggested this new feature I guess it is too inconvient for you.

Anyway, I think an even better solution is to immediately restart the preview rendering if another slider is dragged. That way you don't need to wait until the preview is updated before you can change the settings.

Some time ago I made some tests in that direction, but didn't solve all problems that are involved with that approch. I'm nevertheless confident that such a feature will make it into a future FocalBlade version.
