Cubit Estimating: Slowness/lag when using Cubit


If you are experiencing any slowness/lagging when working with Cubit plans, we suggest you first make sure the computer meets the recommended system requirement to run Cubit. 


System Requirements


If the computer meets the system requirements, but still faces slowness, this may have to do with the Graphics preference, Antivirus Scans, or low disk space on your computer.

You may also need to consult with your IT team, for possible hard drive fragmentation/performance or a faulty hard drive,

We suggest the steps below.


Graphics Settings:
