snaps and external references

Post by dmoses » Tue Apr 04, 2006 11:36 am

I am working in a file that has another file externally referenced to it. When I use my snaps in this file, the program slows down subtantially. The snap inicator will get stuck for 2-3 seconds on snap points for elements that are in the externally referenced file. It works fine when you move the cursor over elements that are in the actual work file, but when it encounters the reference elements it gets stuck.

Is the Xref file in the same folder on the same computer - or is it on a different drive? Is it on a network drive or a local drive? How big are the two files in question? Version of Windows? Amount of ram? Anything else that may help?
