ACT 2005/6 - Faster Startup
Here's a couple of tips that will help your ACT start up quicker.
1. Click on Tools - Preferences - Startup and select the Open each view in it's own window. Next, click on Apply and close the preferences box. Go to the top and click on Window and click Remove All. Open the contact Windows and shut down ACT. The next time you open ACT it will start noticeably faster.
2. Don't use the big Red X in the upper right hand corner to shut down ACT. Instead use FILE-CLOSE/FILE-EXIT. For some reason, this series of steps makes it faster to load.
