Solidworks 2013 Mate operation slowing performance

I'm sure this question has been addressed but I never found the exact problem I'm finding.


The problem I'm seeing is when in assembly, I click an already made mate just to see what is mating with what, but upon clicking the mate Solidworks automatically traces the mating surfaces between the two components. This tracing process eventually highlights the two surfaces but the animation of the trace slows the performance of Solidworks.


It's a very minor issue in that I'm sure I just have to uncheck some box but I'm not finding where exactly this problem is under tools>options>performance/assemblies
