TechDraw workbench is stalling.
1) When adding new views to the drawing (Insert multiple Views of a single part in the active drawing) SOMETIMES FreeCAD hangs for 30+ seconds, after the hang it recovers and continues working as usual. When working normally, adding the view takes just a split second.
2) When adding a new detail to the drawing (Insert a new detail view of a part in the active drawing) FreeCAD ALWAYS hangs, usually for well over 30 seconds, a few times over a minute. I timed one attempt at 70+ seconds. It also hangs when I try to change the anchor point for a detail. You don't even have to change the anchor point value of X/Y/Z or the Radius, if you click the field and then try to click away it will start applying the "change" and hang for a while.
3) When starting FreeCAD from fresh and opening said file containing the TechDrawing, the program hangs for a solid while, usually well over a minute. In the report view I get:
Code: Select all
Rebuilding Views for: Page/Page DVP::extractFaces - input is not planar graph. No face detection
I have monitored the processor usage during these hangs and one core is maxed, FreeCAD.exe shows 25% CPU usage and about 200MB RAM usage.
Some other strange things that have occurred: by default the TechDraw preferences for font size were set to 0.2mm and the arrow size was set to 16um (that's micro). Also, the installer seems to hang a while on the Visual Studio library installation, which is optional but I choose to do it anyway. It took a few minutes to install and it completed successfully, however on a previous install I think I ended up killing the installer because it hanged for a good while.
Thanks for any suggestions.
