Catia is slow when I select or move an object around


New member
Hi, I while ago Catia started acting weird, everytime I move my cursor over an edge, surface or similar, selecting someting or move around my model the program freezes for a couple of seconds and then resumes and I can spin the object freely or do whatever I want. Doing an actual command, like making a pad from a sketch or similar seems to be working just fine.

I'm using a pretty crappy notebook(student) but it used to work alright then all of the sudden it changed. I have tried to reset the catia settings, update my graphic card drivers and done a complete reinstall of windows. The problem is still there. Any ideas?

Try this first:

Go to Tools + Options, and look in the General, Display page. Go to the Performance tab and use the lower-left icon to reset all the options back to default values.
