solidworks will slow down suddenly to the point where entering text is lagging. closing and starting the application seems to clear it, but within an hour it does it again. We recently upgraded form solidworks 2016 to solidworks 2017.
seems like nothing to do with the software but the hardware ?
I at first thought that, but it is happening to multiple users. I know that they have a solidworks capable computer as they were running solidworks 2016.
It happened to certain SW files or any ?
Nope, it happens to multiple files. It also seems to happen randomly. I've been unable to track down a commonality.
are you running sw2017 sp0?
we are running sp4.1
Did you ever get a resolution on this issue? I have a few users who are reporting a similar lagging. Specifically they experience the problem when working in Drafting mode while they are annotating a model in preparation for printing construction drawings.
The lag is particularly bad when clicking into text boxes to enter/edit text (lag between 5-30 seconds before text box allows edits).
We are running Solidworks 2017 SP5 on HP Z240 workstations with Nvidia Quadro P4000 graphics cards on Windows 10 x64.
