Here is the problem when opening a simple 3D model file:
Has anyone seen something like this? Would you have some suggestions how to debug this?
Once the files are cached, it shouldn't take as long the second time open. Unless of course you click the Free button from the first check in dialog that appears. This button is different than all other methods of checking files in, as it not only frees the active file, but also all of the other references copied out. Why this behavior? IDK, we have been trying to get Bentley to address this and make it consistent with other methods for more than a decade with no success.
We call this "the Dastardly Free" button.
