I am having this bug most of the time. Scene is loaded into Layout and Layout is idle. I then switch to some other app (windows explorer) and then switch back to Layout. I can't interact with the interface for cca 5-10 seconds. This is very frustrating when switching from Modeler and Layout often. I deliberately pointed out that this happens when switching to apps other then modeler so it is not a thing with Layout->Modeler communication.

Without system specs, OS, what virus software, etc, it would be hard to even guess. I would start with using the task manager and look at how much cpu loading you have and how much free memory. How busy are your disk drive(s)?

I have plenty of ram, 64 GB, nothing else is going on so no disk activity, Windows 10, Bitdefender antivirus.

I additionally found out that if I kill Modeler there is no delay between LW and other apps.
