I have the unfortuante weight on my shoulders of having to constantly opening files based on levels and waiting for a slow network, my question pertains to opening saving file speeds. What have you found that works in RAC2012? Someone recently mentioned drafting views by setting the opening view in the manage tab. Does anyone have any suggestions, other than switching off worksets, thin starting views?

The best option is to upgrade your computer. However, this isn't always an available options. Here is what I was doing to speed up opening times:

 

Create a 'Save Here' drafting view. It's not quite blank, it has our company logo, the job number and name, and some short save/synchronize instructions.

 

Set the project to always open that view (as described in your other thread).

 

Put all linked files on a different workset. The size of the files and their location in the building is what drives the decision to have one linked files workset for all files, or a workset for each.

 

Open the central file. Go to Save As|Project, then click Options. Make sure 'Make this a central file' is checked, and under 'Open workset default' change it to 'Specify'. This will force you to pick the worksets to open when you open a file, that way you don't forget and end up opening them all.

 

This won't speed up opening by a huge amount, but it will break the process up into several steps that seems to help slower computers.
