subscription library seems to have disappeared from resources with SP2? or just me? 

 

It works for me,  you don't by chance have the cloud de-selected in the resource browser do you?

SP2 installed fine but I got this message? Not sure what the effects are so FYI only. I did correct my files where the origin marker in the screen rulers was not available.

It's ok to click ok.   There was a post somewhere that said basically there is a new preference setting that didn't exist previously which triggered that warning.

The zooming lags,

in crowded files where it seemed that selection detection blocked view changes

seem to work much better now.

 

 

And want to point out that generally VW'S capability to handle complex files in OpenGL

and its support of Symbols works really really well !

Space objects are now joy enriched with many many beach balls of death.

 

Any change double beach ball about 8-10 secs each. so 20secs inactive per change.

Even in new files, or this is a specific file behaving this way? I was not able to replicate this on a few upgraded files or in a new blank one.

New files a still get a clear stutter like it has returned control but then grabs it back. Neither pause is a enough to beach ball, both are worse if object has transparency.

 

Problem gets distinctly worse as the you work with files with more geometry on another visible layer. Even if I add a space for the first time to a reasonably complex file. I get a clear stutter. Testing a number of files that had spaces pre service pack 2 and stutter becomes greater to the point of beach balling.

Before that, I'd recommend resetting preferences. I have a couple Space-heavy files here that myself and a few QA members can't replicate the slowness in and they suspect it might be an issue with your user plugin prefs.
