    Default Major lag

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I'm a draftsman at an electrical engineering office and I have a project that should be relatively simple, but a file we are suppose to use as a base in the drawing is very large. Originally, it was 6.4 MB but i got it down to 5.4 MB with a bit of tweaking and a Purge. Still, when I go to paper space, the cursor lags horribly.

    I know its not my computer. I'm running Windows 7 with a core7 processor with more than enough ram.

    Are there any commands or ways to reduce lag?

    What's you average file size?

    Have you tried audit and purge regapps using "-purge"? Note the dash, that gives you the command line version which allows you to purge regapps.

    If you are not using AEC objects, try AECOBJEXPLODE followed by a purge.

    Paper space only? Is there a PDF inserted there?
    Drafting is a breeze.

    By any chance was the drawing created in Microstation?
