AC27 Slow Trace Reference on Worksheet

Harvey Fontanilla
Contributor

Hi. We are currently experiencing slow navigation (zooming, placing text, dimensions) when doing worksheets. Our typical workflow is:

For Blow-up Plans (Toilet Details, other details with larger scale than our plans and will only require a portion of the plan):

After placing the blow-up views, we trace the layout on a separate worksheet then from there, we place our dimensions. This Worksheet will now be placed on top of the Traced Layout so we can have a separate view showing only text, tags and dimensions instead of placing it on the model space.

Since Archicad 27, we cannot do this anymore efficiently due to the "short" stops. Even when panning or selecting text when using worksheet with trace reference, this happens. Worksheets with Trace Reference becomes so slow.

 

We did not encounter this on all the previous versions we had since AC18. Do you guys know a quick solution for this or had encountered this?

 

Thank you!

Same here - it seems dwg trace references are now bloody slow..

Same here, trace reference is effectively unusable since AC27...

Have the same issue. Did you get any solution to the problem?

Same issue. Using a dwg in a worksheet as trace reference is super laggy.

Disabling the Quick Selection Option (Magnet) works for us but this is only a temporary solution

I tried disabling the magnet nad it feels like it is far more responsive. The magnet detects the trace reference and gives the relevant info at the tracker tab.it feels like this process creates a lagging. For me it also feels that the mouse polling rate affects the response. I have a mouse that has a max of 1000hz polling rate. As far as I know Archicad can handle till 500hz, but i have set it at 125hz so the scrolling will not have any lags.
