Setting an object takes too long

Hi, i'm new to test complete. I'm trying to understand how does the Set method works. though my auto-wait timeout is set to 10 secs , i see sometimes it takes over 20 secs to set an object. Not sure...

    Well, here's the thing... while the timeout setting can be adjusted, it's not something you necessarily WANT to make too short.  It's a timeout, meaning that it will return earlier than the max setting once the object is found.  So, you want it to be sufficiently long to be able to find the object.  This is not a "problem" in the automation, it's a part of automation: detecting when objects become available.
