SolidWorks Electrical Slowing Down

After upgrading from SolidWorks Electrical 2014 to 2016 my group and I saw a drastic decrease in performance in the software. Old projects could take a couple minutes doing almost any task, like moving a wire. We also notice that even simple tasks on newer projects like adding multiple wire labels at once can take a couple minutes.We also notice that as the project grows, the software slows down on almost every task.


We aren't sure where these performance issues come from. To us they could be related to issues on our shared database, too many projects on our growing collection, or if this is simply how SolidWorks Electrical operates. If this is normal, it's almost getting unusable for large projects.


Does anybody know what might be causing this?
