ToolTips and rollover ToolTips significantly impact performance when running AutoCAD on Citrix XenApp. We recommend that you disable ToolTips and rollover ToolTips. To disable ToolTips and rollover ToolTips, click Application menu button > Options. On the Display tab of the Options dialog box, clear the checkmarks for Show ToolTips and Show rollover ToolTips. You can also reset the TOOLTIPS and ROLLOVERTIPS sysvars to 0 at the command line.

Dynamic Input

Dynamic Input significantly impacts performance when running AutoCAD on Citrix XenApp. We recommend that you disable Dynamic Input. To disable Dynamic Input, right-click the Dynamic Input icon on the Map Status Bar or enter DSETTINGS at the command prompt. On the Dynamic Input tab of the Drafting Settings dialog box, clear the checkmarks for Enable Pointer Input, Enable Dimension Input where possible, and Show command prompting and command input near the crosshairs. You can also hide the Dynamic Input icon by right clicking on it and clearing the check next to Display > Dynamic Input.

Selection Preview

Selection Preview significantly impacts performance when running AutoCAD on Citrix XenApp. We recommend that you disable Selection Preview when no command is active. To disable Selection Preview when no command is active, click Application menu button > Options. On the Selection tab of the Options dialog box, clear the checkmark for When no command is active. You can also reset the SELECTIONPREVIEW sysvar to 2 at the command line.
