Text Editing is Becoming Painfully Slow

 I have been working on a drawing and as I add pages to this drawing, the text editing has become so slow that I am waiting sometimes 30 seconds for the cursor to catch up to what I have typed.  I have already closed Visio and reopened.  Ideas?

What type of diagram is it?
Approximately how many pages, how many shapes?
Have you added any images to the document?
How large is the file (KB or MB)?

I felt a same problem, when I was trying preview version of Visio 2013 at first.

Approximately 20 pages (30MB).  At least a dozen shapes per page.  Two embedded excel spreadsheets per page.  Overall a pretty busy diagram.

Take a copy of the diagram, remove the embedded spreadsheets, save and close the file. Then reopen it and see if that makes a difference. That will determine whether it's the spreadsheets causing the problem.

I removed all of the spreadsheets and this did not make a difference.  It is definitely related to the size of the file.  I split my file to create a continuation of my drawings but as this file started increasing in size the editing speed began to slow down.  Could be related to number of shapes as well but either way the results are the same.

Being the pedant that I am ... did you perform all the steps I suggested above? Just removing the spreadsheets is not sufficient.

Ok, sorry, I hope you realise why I had to ask!

@Paul, aren't there other things that can (should) be cleaned up to increase speed?
... unused masters, ... ?

@ Kadrian,
How complex are your shapes. Is there a lot of background "shapesheet smartness" involved. Could simpler shapes decrease the amount of calculations involved?

An additional thought: waiting times are often caused by background routines trying to achieve something without success. Can you check your drawings on a other system?

What version do you run anyway? Could you try saving the drawing as older version drawing, re-load and test?

Just some thoughts. Paul is the forum's master of debugging.
