    Can WIPEdit retrieve/cache all possible .PAR paragraphs on load?

      Our users use WIPEdit to modify interactive documents in our home grown application.  Right now the plugin loads the basic form, and when a user clicks on a PSL it makes a documaker call to retrieve the possible paragraph choices.  Except it only loads the first one completely, and displays the titles of the others.  If a user clicks on the second choice it makes another documaker call to display the details.  Clicks third choice, another call, another couple seconds to load the details.  Once that paragraph is loaded, the data is stored in the temp folder with the other dpw files, and loads instantaneously the next time it's clicked (during that session).  On a document with multiple different PSLs it creates a negative user experience loading all the choices while they look for what they want.  The plugin seems to lock up when it's downloading the option, it doesn't give any message saying that it's loading something.

       

      So my question is:  is it possible to somehow front-load all the possible PAR files with the initial interactive document load?  It'd be an extra second or two up front, but would avoid all the overhead of multiple calls.  I've found some config sections that seem to be related (File2DPW maybe), but can't find any documentation about how they're used.
