I am having huge performance problems with FM17. As soon as I enter layout mode, the screen does no seem to refresh and ultimately filemaker becomes completely unresponsive, up to the point where I have to kill it through task manager. I attached a short vid to show what happens when i switch to Layout mode


It happens with both local and server hosted apps,  these apps behave absolutely fine in FM16 but are completely unworkable in FM17.
