Hi. I use Layout as a part of my architectural drawing workflow. I model in Sketchup and produce drawings in Layout. As part of my workflow I make detail scaled drawings overlayed over model viewport sections. My problem is that Layout and the drawing process gets very slow and laggy, screen response becomes very slow and it’s a generally very frustrating experience. I have “Groups” turned to “darker” in Document Settings. I have tried tracing over raster rendered viewports but this doesn’t change performance in the scaled groups in which I am drawing.
I would welcome any general performance tips people might have. In particular I would also like advice on where the performance bottleneck is; I am planning to buy a new Mac and need to know whether to focus on single processor speed, multi-core speed, RAM or graphics card performance. Currently I am using a 2015 MacBook Pro, 2.7GHZ Dual core i5, 16GB RAM, Intel Iris 6100 integrated graphics. I display on a pair of 4k Dell monitors.
Any advice welcome!
