We have several drawings that seem to cause an extremely long lag time
before saving. What I mean by this is that we issue the "save" or
command, and the computer sits for about 20 to 50 seconds (depending
speed of the computer), then it saves the drawing quickly.
The problem doesn't seem to be the computers settings because some
are fine. Also, if I start with a "good" drawing and copy anything
just a line) from the bad drawing to the good drawing, the good
be corrupted and start doing the same thing. Even if I delete the
line, the file is still corrupted. When the entity is copied from the
file to the good file, the good file jumps in size from 24kb to 598kb.
I have recovered, purged, and WBlock-ed the entire drawing (-wblock *)
avail. I have also done these remedies with the files in AutoCAD R14.
Saving in AutoCAD R14 works fine (fast), but the file is still in the
range, and when opened/saved in 2002, the problem remains.
