Object properties takes long time to appear

Not sure if it’s my system, but when I click on object properties (the concentric circles) it takes forever to dropdown, sometimes giving me the spinning beachball. When it does drop, it’s sluggish like it’s really taxing system resources. Specs: MBP 2015 15" Retina, 2.5Ghz i7, 16GB, AMD Radeon R9 M370X 2 GB, Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB.

Any ideas what might be causing this?


pls run the systeminfo command in rhino and post the results.

if you temporarily disable plugins does it help? I’m wondering if the keyshot plugin has a lag in it…
