Hello Folks, I'm sure this has probably come up before:

But DCAD Freezes up about 8 seconds when switching between window views from one file to the next. Say when I'm copy and pasting from one DCAD File Window and going back to the other open File.
Hopefully my problem is described correctly?

Thanks in advance for your help, it's very irritating,
P.S. I'm not running Norton or McAfee

Does not make a difference if files are on my computer or on our server. Running windows 7 home premium 64 bit on an Intel i7 at 2.20 GHz with 8GB of RAM. Never was an issue with DCAD 12 (I know, long time between upgrades)

Hey Neil,
No Server, just networked with other computers in the home.
Running Windows 10. but the problem has been occurring since Windows 7.
Seems to be just a bit better with Windows 10 but still irritating as all get out.
If you have two files open and switching between them - DCAD Freezes for about 6 seconds before (not responding), etc....,
Really would like to figure this out.
