I agree with @Steve Adobe Illustrator does seem to be under-performing compared to other programs I run that also deal with large files. While the tips & tricks some have posted are useful in many use cases they do not address all use cases and do not fix the problem of an under-performing application that user pay for year after year.

This will be a useful time-saving feature that will also aid in providing consistency for branded art & design works.
@Luis and @Anonymous I also purchased all three Serif/Affinity apps during their half off sale. I cut my personal Adobe subscription. I still use Adobe at work but have found there are some high complexity vector files that cannot handle and that Affinity Designer handles with ease. I will say though that the biggest leg up Adobe Illustrator has over Designer is the shape builder tool. For logos and character illustrations it is a huge time saver... but when it comes to uber complex vector files like large Open Street vector maps, Designer thrives while Adobe derps. With that said, I enjoy both sets of software. They both have their strengths and weaknesses... and one costs far less.
