I'm about to finish up a project in which I've used Railclone (sidewalks, curbs, streets and blinds) and Forestpack (large grass area, trees, a large garden with 1000s of flowers). These scenes got pretty heavy so when finished I inserted them into the file which contains my building as XRefs. There are a total of 4 XRefs ranging from 7Mb to 1,5GB. As far as I know this is the best way to lessen the load and make the files as workable as possible.
When trying to open the file my laptop often freezes or takes 10-20min to open the file. I'm sure it has something to do with the XRefs, since it opens really quick when I delink them. Is there anything to be done to make it wore workable? Even turning the XRefs on/off takes forever.
Laptop shouldn't be the problem and I'm not using a virtual environment nor am I on a network.
