It seems to happen randomly and I can't tell what triggers it. Everytime I regen or autosave/save the status shows "displaying contours" and a load bar that takes way too long and slows me down... very frustrating and would appreciate any help regarding this problem! Thanks
it's at a typical 1' interval. I've had contours at 0.4' intervals and it didn't have this problem. I can be working in the drawing and everything is fine and then out of left field it will start doing this to me. Thanks for the input!
Sooo, I changed the surface label view to "false" so it wouldn't show my minor and major contour labels and now it's lightning fast again...
I've found it easier to create a "No Show" style so everything is turned off, this makes it quicker than changing visibility from true to false each time you don't want to see the surface.
Thanks for the advice. That's what I ended up doing and I still haven't figured out how to find the labels I turned to false since I had the label line turned off also... any ideas how I can relocate those labels so I can change their styles. Thanks!
Yeah, go to your Toolspace, Settings Tab, hit the plus next to Surface, then hit plus next to Surface Styles and Label Styles. You will notice this lists all the styles in this drawing. Here you can select one, right click and then click on Edit. Just find the ones you changed to false.
Hopefully this helps.
I think I'm SOL. I manually changed the label lines to false, instead of changing their style views to false (hind-sights 20/20). Their styles are still set to true. Thanks for the help, those labels will just have to be space junk floating around in my drawing.
Use QuickSelect, Choose to only select Object Type: Surface Contour Label Group, for the Operator select Choose All. This will then select all of the ContourLabelLines which you can then change the Label Style visibility in the Properties Palette (or delete if you so desire to start over).
