Snapping causes ArcMap to crash

ArcMap 10.4


When drawing a new shape or re-drawing an existing shape using the trace tool, ArcMap will sometimes crash if snapping is enabled.

These are the options I have enabled:


Perhaps when moving my cursor around the map as I trace, it puts my PC resources under too much load. It's like the amount of nodes/verticies available to snap to is TOO **** HIGH! So ArcMap just gives up and dies.


So far it's only crashed when drawing/re-shaping polygons.

If I trace with snapping turned off, it doesn't crash.


Has anyone else experienced this?

I'll send a crash report next time it happens (but does anyone look at those anyway?)


(side question: when writing a question on this forum, you are required to publish it in a location. however, there are no suitable locations for ArcMap related queries. Any ideas why this is?)
