Slow-Opening DDR via FMP Advanced

I'm using FMP Advanced 15.0.3.305 on an iMac running Mac OS Sierra 10.12.3 using Safari 10.0.3 as my browser. If not 100% up to date, they're all damn close to it, so I don't think my problem's due to software decrepitude.

 

Lately my Database Design Reports have been taking much longer than usual to open. It still takes a couple of minutes to create them, but heretofore, whenever I clicked on a file name in the Report Overview, I got the full display within 5-10 seconds. Now one of my files (14 tables, 150 layouts) takes close to 3 minutes to show up, and another one (20 tables, 100 layouts) on a different iMac (same software, tho) takes over 5. Each time there's only 1 file in the DDR, and I'm only looking at 5 quantities (tables, relationships, layouts, value lists, and scripts) for it.

 

This seems way too slow. Has anyone else had this problem, or is it just me? Or maybe just those files in particular? Other, smaller files display just as quickly as always.
