We installed Autocad LT 2014 on our new computer and I noticed that it is unusually slow to switch between layouts.
The bottom bar (where the paper/model space button is) kept flashing/switching as if its thinking whenever i click from one layout to another. Even when Im zooming in and out, the bottom bar kept flashing slowly.
I was hoping that a new computer+new cad will make our work more efficient and faster, but i noticed theres a lot of lagging and general slowness in loading files. please help! thanks
I found that the solution shown in the thread "AutoCAD LT 2014 Flickering Issue" did the trick. Handled a couple problems. You replace the file "AecCore.crx" with a 2013 version.
It worked for an LT 2014 installation on a Dell laptop with Win7 64 & a desktop with Win8 64.
No undesirable side effects so far from that solution.
For me, turning off hardware acceleration did not help anything.
Sorry, I don't know how to paste in a link like Mr. Pendean does.
After trying out the 3DCONFIG / enabling hardware acceleration, I noticed that the problem starts again when I have a few drawings open at the same time.
I click' check for updates' to see if there are any updates for the graphics hardware. but it says that its uptodate
