Performance unusably slow when drop shadows used

0 votes
I'm using the latest version of yEd (3.13) and becomes unusably slow soon as I enable a drop-shadow on any object (4-5 seconds lag when moving an object from one place to another on a fast quad-core machine).  The problem goes away if i remove all drop shadows, so it seems to be a rendering issue.

Is there any way around this other than making very flat diagrams?  It has made it very difficult to edit my diagrams, and I really like using yEd!  I'm not sure if the problem is due to yEd itself, the included java VM, or with OSX Yosemite.

Finally an answer to super slow rendering.  Remove shadows.  

Not ideal but at least I can work again.
