Hi. I’ve looked for anyone else experiencing this and only happened upon one post made last year that no one was able to give any advice. Has anyone else having a problem with the software running slowly when put into Edit mode. Usually, right when I start Blender and go into edit mode it’s lightning fast. then as time goes on I start tabbing into edit mode and rotate or zoom and it’s slow as molasses. I updated my Nvidia Geforce 250 GTS drivers, went to the latest and then back to a previous version, but it still happens. I just got this computer and don’t remember this happening on my old one. I’m running an AMD hexacore with 8bg mem and Win7 Home Premium 64 bit.
I had this problem recently. I found that it was caused by the modifiers of other objects, for example my hair particle system was on a scalp attached to the head with a shrinkwrap, so when I edited the mesh it had to update the particles, even if they were hidden.
could you post your blend file? a computer with those specs shouldn’t be lagging
