I have noticed that Inventor 2013 is very slow to close out of a file. I just opened an iam that had less than 50 parts. Rotated it to see the other side, then closed it. Took 1min-21 seconds for the swirley circle to go away and I could open my next file.
Is this expected behaviour?
Just tried it on a different iam. This time it took 2min-43secs to get to where I could open another document. I noticed that when I exited the file, the total occurance went to zero rather quickly, but the Open document number just sat there.
Yes, exactly. This was a problem at a customer of mine and was related to local windows settings and read / write rights on local computer. We detected that when we turned off the search for unique filenames in the project file the "slowness" disappeared and we could find the real problem which was windows settings.
If this dont help..
Do a defragmentation on your machine
Are you reindexing and purging the vault ? Even if you run local adms and need to service the databases.
Are your files in content center and libraries migrated ? 2013 is a bit slow with old files it seems.
