Much Longer Time to Switch to an Assembly Config Than to Open it From Scratch

This one baffles me…  Answer me this…


I have been doing some time testing on SW 2019 SP 3.0 because it just seems slower than 2018 5.0 (although maybe not the case).  What I have seen is excessively long times required to change from one configuration, in a moderately sized assembly, to another configuration.  Configuration “1” takes “x” time to open.  It then takes “4-6x” the time to switch from configuration “2” back to configuration “1”.  The same holds true for the opposite direction.


I have also found this to be an issue with 2018 5.0.  I always thought switching configurations was slow, but putting times to it shows 4-6 times longer to switch to a configuration than to open that configuration from scratch.  This baffles me because a good portion of the models are already in memory.  Why so long?  Settings selection?  Softer issue?
