At my work everyone who uses AutoCAD has their own copy installed on
their own computers and we access a single networked computer with all
our .dwg, blocks, lisp, plot styles, etc...
This has been working fine for years until recently about a month ago
random commands in AutoCAD only started to slow. The undo command
will take anywhere from 20 sec to 2 minutes to undo something as
simple as moving a line to the wrong location. Printing takes 2-3
minutes for AutoCAD to send the file to the printer where it use to be
instant. mstretch, mpedit and other such commands when used will say
Initializing... In the command line and take 15-20 sec before the
command is even ready to use then after seeing the command takes
another 15-20 sec to redraw the image with the changes. Some of our
lisps that were made in house to speed up our work have gone from
taking 10 seconds of automation (a combination of 8 steps of multiple
commands) to now taking a little over 2 minutes to complete.
Does anyone have an idea as to what is going wrong in my office? Our
IT guy has looked into everything network wise he can think of but we
believe this is a problem isolated to AutoCAD.
Thanks for any help you can give.
