Hold off on the regen

Using FMD 7.1
I'm adding 40 rooms due to a renovation. Is there a way to hold off regenerating the drawing until I'm done with each room. I takes nearly a minute for each room.

TIA

I found the regen option on the Space Data form. All set.

This really takes a minute per room? That is brutally slow. What version of FMD / AutoCAD / etc?

FMD 7.1 ACAD 2008

The slowness was partly due to the excessive amount of shared spaces on the floor (cross hatch generation) and being a large floor (around 45K). By a minute per room, it was recreating the whole floor everytime I finished with data entry for a new space. As I mentioned in a previous post, I found the option to turn-off the automatic redraw, so I could create the spaces THEN redraw the floor.

Thanks.
