Civil 3D 2017 - MapWSpace SLOOOOOOOOOW
« on: February 23, 2017, 10:18:30 am »
Has anyone noticed when bringing in a SHP file with MAPWSPACE in c3d2017, if the SHP file has any significant amount of data, the file completely bogs down and you can't pan/zoom around?
Recently upgraded from 2014 and never had a problem.
I'm even loading the same SHP files in 2017 that were fine in previous c3d versions.

I've not noticed that, although that may just be due to the fact that I generally MAPIMPORT Shapefiles, and only use MAPWSPACE for drawing queries of the imported Object Data.

What exactly are you 'bringing in' from the Shapefile(s) using MAPWSPACE?

The only thing I have noticed slowing a session to a crawl, is a pick of even a single imported Polyline that has too many vertices, with no real way to force a deselect (until the select is finished). GRIPOBJLIMIT only accounts for the number of entities selected, and not the max number of Grips to be displayed.
