Is it just me or is it indeed slower then previous releases and buggy. I use it mostly with the routing add-in and I'm running in one problem after the other.

 

Including :

- it hanging without it not being marked as none responsive in windows

only showing a dialog box after I'm trying to force it closed which I still can't actually click because the system is still busy so in the end I just have to force quit out of it all together.

- it flipping the position of routing items or better still putting it perpendicular to the route after a rebuild

- automatically moving the toolbars to different locations and resetting the location of the command manager to the top instead of to the side which I prefer after a crash

Acad hasn't done that kind of BS since 1998 but SW still can't manage to lock the toolbars down in 2017 !?

- removing more then 1 mate at a time in routing = instant crash

 

And no, I can't be bothered to make RX movies. SW has our money then can spend some to actual hire beta testers and troubleshooters. That or they can start by no longer charging us for doing their work.
