Why is it taking so long to generate plots when trying to print to scale using imperial units? I've seen it as high as 4 hours to generate a preview?

Also, how do I get the plotter to plot imperial units to scale. If I set the scale to anything other than 1mm = 1 I get the long generation times. 25.4 mm = 1, 1 inch = 1, 1 inch = 25.4. They all have the same issue with long generation times.

Does anyone have an idea why this is happening and a possible solution before I send in a support ticket?

Well I've certainly stumbled upon a bug with a significant memory leak. I had nanoCAD pushing 4gb's of ram while trying to plot, normal usage is around 650mb
as nanoCAD eats up memory, the time to generate a plot increases. See attached image ~7 hours
