Resizing / Stretching Viewports problem..

Resizing / Stretching Viewports problem..

Resizing / Stretching Viewports problem..

(OP)
Hi,

Does anyone experience the same problem as me, in that why is autocad 2009 sometimes so painfully slow when you try to stretch and re-size paperspace viewports with their grips? Its almost like the snap (F9) is on, but its not and it takes a few seconds to update the the cursor position on the screen - if i take off osnap (F3) it seems to improve things but only marginally..

If i do a normal stretch command on the viewports it sometimes works at normal speed, but sometime the stretch command isn't always a practical solution..

Anyone had this before and know why?

And its not just my machine its happening on (note: my machine is not the spec as in my signature, thats my own home pc), its happening to at least 3 out of 8 of us but with random drawings..

All of the pcs in our office are single-core P4s except one, half the machines are AGP graphics cards, half are PCI-Express, all graphics cards are similar spec, which is quite high, and we all have 2gb of ram in each pc..

So, in various drawings, some large in file size with many layouts and lots of modelspace stuff and some small in file size with only a few layouts, this sluggish viewport resizing is occuring..

Any ideas what could be the main cause?

No i'm presuming that 2009 is mainly written for multi-core processors so could this simply be the issue?

     Cheers,

Paul

I've just found out what the problem is (well certainly for me anyway):

Turn off your Layer Properties Manager and try it..

Seems the LPM is causing all sorts of problems, so best to only have it on when using it, not a floating or docked palette..
