Lag working with points

I am experiencing a noticable lag (probably 30 seconds) when I go to Point Group properties (to change the display order of the point groups) and in the properties of individual point groups (to change point or label styles). I started noticing the problem around the time I installed a trial version of AutoDesk Vehicle Tracking. Anyone else having similar problems or possible fixes?

What version are you using? 


If you are running 2011 with Raster Design, there is a bug with rollover tooltips and points.  Type ROLLOVERTIPS and set it to 0 and the delay should stop.

I'm running Civil 3D 2014.

Checked the ROLLOVERTIPS but it was already set to 0.

Check your hardware acceleration and try tuning your settings. Also you may want to try and borrow your license if you're on a network license and see if that helps. I've heard of some network licensing lag issues and things have improved with a "Borrowed license".
