We are in the process of migrating a bunch of our different Act 6 databases over to a single Act 11 (premium) instance. Our original databases have usually between 100 and 300 custom fields. We have already started the process and have been bit by the issue where we can't map fields into our import (know issue, which I understand 11.1 is supposed to address).
My present issue is that when I go into Layout Designer it behaves glacially slow. Selecting single text boxes takes 5-15 seconds. And deselecting objects can take 5 seconds. When I have to manipulate and align 50 objects into rows and columns this adds up to significant amount of time. Items lag significantly when I try to drag them around; if I use the arrow key to nudge objects there's a qtr-to-half second delay between each incremental nudge. However, when I use the various Format options (Align, etc.) they work snappily--its just manipulating the individual objects on the layout which is the problem.
I'm remoting into ACT server throuh Terminal Services and the machine is decent (4GB RAM) and RAID 5 drive array--its our Act 11 server. The machine is not being hammered with any other apps (it is a file server--but low volume).
Any ideas/suggestions on why this is happening and what I can do to move things along--its very frustrating.

I just created a new database in Premium v11.
I am using the standard Company Layout and modifying it. I am also experiencing signficant performance issues - whether it is opening or closing it. It is not happening all of the time - but enough times so it becomes a real time waster as I sit there waiting for it to close.
I fear doing anything else on the laptop.
