Default Splitting database - terrible performance

I split my database recently and now I am experience terrible performance
when designing my forms. It can take 10 seconds just to select a field and
delete it. Or when I go into the design view of a form it may take a minute.
I realize that it might add a little time because of splitting but something
is obviously wrong when I have to sit and wait every time I click the mouse.
Help!!

Default Splitting database - terrible performance

What I do is to have a copy of the back-end on my local drive.
When I make updates I link to this local copy.
When deploying the changes, I just redo the links to point to the production
database.

Default Splitting database - terrible performance

We experienced a similar massive slowdown after moving the data from our
apps to a back-end server. It turned out that the network antivirus was
newly-updated and misbehaving.

You might want to check Tony T's website for several possibilities for poor
performance ...
