My cursor sticks and freezes for like 2-3 seconds which is kinda annoying specially if I'm in a hurry. It happens everytime it passes an object specially when I am in 3d modelling workspace, it doesn't run smoothly at all.

 

Can sombedy help me out of this.  By the way my computer processor is intel core-i7, and 6 GB RAM.

In additon to DynamicUCS, you may try disabling QuickProperties, SELECTIONPREVIEW, and SELECTIONCYCLING

LAYER palette open? Close it and try again.

Turning off Win7's Aero theme helps a few folks as well.

This was happening like mad at my office to multiple users all working on 64 bit deployments (win 7).  BTW we have XP 32 bit deployments which did not have this problem.

 

These are the things that worked for us (There was no single solution):

 

1)   Update display adapter driver.

2)   turn off selection cycling, quick properties

3)   restart autocad

4)   go to options: drafting:  Auto Track Settings and uncheck the display Auto Track tooltip

 

it seemed like the one that really had an effect for us was # 4.

Thanks cstevens it worked perfectly. I did all four steps as you stated and it. I suspect that it may just be a matter of step #4 as you stated it, thats the one which seemed to make a real difference.

 

Cheers.

Go to Options (Command: op) then go to Drafting, then find the "AutoSnap Settings", so UNCHECK the box: Magnet.

Aplly the settings and restar your AutoCAD and be happy.
