vectorworks 2016 processor bog down when entering or exiting groups


I have been having an issue with vectorworks 2016 when dealing with grouped objects.  certain groups can be edited very quickly, but many are requiring the 

computer to think about it for several minutes when I attempt to enter or exit the group of parts.  This has been making me crazy for several months now.  

I am running VW on a 2013 mac pro 12 core 2.7 GHz processor with 64 GB of ram and an AMD fireproof d700 6144 MB graphic card.  

This is happening so often that it is wasting an hour or more a day waiting for the program to complete these operations.  Is anyone else having issues like this?


most of these files are quite large, 100+ Mb or more

If you save a copy of one of those files as a test, theb break apart the top 2-3 levels of groupings, does the delay stay afterwards or is it only present when the groups are whole?
