What happens when you turn off Grouped by Type? In the new file dialog, select the pulldown from the upper right corner, deselect the checkmark (assuming it's checked).
Sorry I got side tracked after your reply back when this thread was started and forgot all about it.
Vinod, I'm not sure what option here you're suggesting I change.
Sam/Brian, my templates are stored in a network location. I'll try to find time to test local templates later (I don't want to unload what I'm working on right now). I also didn't/don't have any problem with 2012. I tried the grouping option, but I didn't see any noticble change.
Gs, the delay I was and am now still seeing is around 3 seconds. I blame my problem on fancy interface changes trumping performance; your problem sounds like it may be more severe.
Is there an update on this issue? or Solution? I just have "Upgraded" to 2013 from 2011 and we are experiencing this same issue. Accept some of the time it freezes. It is so annoying that i've been reverting to using 2011 instead.
They are located on our network so if there is any changes we all get the updated file.
