Not sure what is causing this bug. Anyone else ever have a similar issure? It happens during many different commands. The command itself doesn't seem to affect this problem. It doesn't always happen, but every so often, as I'm in the middle of a command, when I scroll past a contour line the program freezes. Sometimes it comes back to life after a few seconds of thinking, but sometimes it just sits there non-responsive forever. It's driving me crazy.
-Contour Labels set to "Mask Contour Line Only"
-Dynamic Inputs on
-Selection Preview is on (but it's disabled for "When a command is active")
-Surface is shortcutted into the drawing
-Contours are from an XREF
Would any of these ideas cause this annoying bug?
Anyone have any input?
Thanks a million!

You may want to try turning off Rollover Tooltips. Can't think of anything else at the moment.
I've hard of this issue quite a few times. In a majority of the cases its the graphics hardware that isn't quite working correctly with C3D.
Some things to try:
1. Disable Rollover Tips (already discussed)
2. Toggle Hardware Accelaration On/Off
3. Update/Rollback your graphics driver.
Autodesk released a certified hardware/driver site a while back. Try checking this against your current drivers.
Disabling rollover tooltips seems to have had a positive effect. I haven't run into the problem again yet, but it was so sporadic before that I can't be sure yet that I won't run into it again. Thanks for the tips!
It froze just now and I had tooltips off. It had been operating pretty smoothly for a while. I was moving a multileader by its grips when I scrolled over a contour line and it froze. I've turned off hardware acceleration now... I'll see if that has any effect.
Hardware acceleration didn't seem to have anything to do with it. It froze again. In general, the program is moving very fast on my machine, so something is hanging up with respect to the contour lines. I don't think it's a hardware issue.
ANY OTHER IDEAS?
I've ruled out contour label mask settings and dynamic inputs. Also, the surface of this drawing is not shortcutted in, but the surface is in the base drawing and the base is xreffed into the drawing in which I'm having problems. I didn't seem to have problems when working in the base. I've also ruled out a difference between working in a viewport and working in the model tab, as there is none.
The only thing that prevents it so far is turning off OSNAP. If OSNAP is off, then the crosshairs don't want to snap to the contour lines when passing over them. Why would snap be causing this?
I'm at my wit's end with this stupid problem.
I don't know if anyone is still looking at this, but this issue is getting really frustrating. I've restarted AutoCAD 3 times in the last 10 minutes all because of the same freeze problem. Sometimes I can barely get through three commands after rebooting before it freezes again.
