Non-Responsive Design View

The design view in Visual Studio has become so slow as to be almost obsolete.
Originally I was bewildered by the inevitable 'Not Responding' message, as I'm working on a top range Surface Pro 3.

Killing every other process not required has made no difference.

I even briefly installed Visual Studio on a research PC for high performance computing, with 920 I7 processors, and even it hangs!

I've now spent days researching how to resolve this, and have made one very interesting discovery: I am one of the very few people who still use Design Mode in Visual Studio, as everyone else has already abandoned it due to the appalling responsiveness! Instead they use a browser to view the design.

So I am, with much regret, going to probably become one of those developers who pretends that the designer doesn't exist. I just can't stand wasting hours each week looking at the 'Not Responding' message at the top of the screen.

Please improve the Design View so that we can use it again!
