    Default AutoCAD 2017 Slow when moving blocks

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hey everyone,

    While i'm using autocad2017, when i need to move blocks, big or small dimensions, it gets unbelievable slow, impossible to work with.
    When i need to move blocks i use AutoCAD2015, it doesn't get slow at all. only on 2017's version. Is there any option i should consider?

    Mostly do drafting related to manufacturing. From doing site layouts with proposed updates, additions and renovations to be budgeted and submitted for bid, to updating and changing existing drawings to reflect maintenance and repair/revision work done on site.

    What are your computer specifications?

    Are the blocks on a network?

    What driver version?

    May I remind you AutoCAD 2015 may have different needs than AutoCAD 2017.

    You may want to investigate if others running AutoCAD 2017 on Windows 10 are having troubles with Nvidia GForce GTX 950m.

    Do you also Have an Intel Processor? Some laptops will have both. In which case make sure you are running on the Nvidia.

    You didn't answer the network or not question.

    Is this with certain blocks or any and all blocks? Can you post some blocks that slow down 2017?

    I forgot sorry, actually i'm not using network.
    My drivers are up to date, because i did it just before install AC2017. Anyway i'll investigate if the problem is with the Nvidia vs intel.
    I disabled Hardware aceleration because it would be very slow
