Summary

Bug or Not, Something has changed in a big way when changing structure.

Description of the issue

Whether this is a bug or not, I cannot seem to find anything relating to it anywhere, so either its not documented (probably) or I dont know the correct terms to search for in the KB.. When changing something via Manage Database, such as renaming a field or deleting a field, Filemaker 11 will start on a very slow journey updating layouts.... when I say slow... Im talking 1 hour before I can get back to work. One example is changing the name of one field in one table, which exists on only 1 of my layouts... On the dialog, there is of course a skip button, but I really don't fancy introducing problems into my solution, especially ones which I may never find until its too late, as a consequence of skipping the updating of layouts. Can anybody point me to documentation which explains the behaviour change, or at least explain here why it now takes so long to do what previously took seconds.
