Using editor for extended periods results in performance drop
Build a vehicle, delete and undo a lot of stuff.
Test the vehicle and revert to VAB multiple times.
Create subassemblies. Switch to another craft and use the subassemblies.
Use the new structural panels from Making History.
After 20-30 minutes the editor gets slower and slower.
Attaching parts takes 5 seconds to register, RAM shoots up to use >12GB (!), Offset/Rotation tools have considerable lag to them.
This makes building complex vehicles not fun anymore and has been getting worse ever since 1.4.x

This issue is confirmed on Build 126.96.36.1999. When creating a large vessel with multiple engines, fairings, subassemblies, and structural panels, the editor ran more slowly. Copying, pasting, undoing, and switching editors took several seconds longer than usual. Saving the craft, leaving the VAB, and re-entering caused the game to slow and the Windows spinning icon to appear. No crash occurred. Attached is a DxDiag for specifications of the PC and the complicated craft which eventually slowed things down.
