slow power filter

When I use the Power Filter (Topic Text), it takes over a minute for Mindjet to complete the action. The map has about 2000 topics.  A minute seems very long. Excel can search a 1 MB file in a fraction of a second. Is it just me, or is there some underlying coding error that's make Mindjet so slow. 

By way of comparison, a simple Find in Mindjet is almost instantaneous.

I have a "ToDo" file that I have been using for years.  Now running MM2017.  My power filter has always seemed sort of slow.

The stats on my file follow. . .

Did you notice any difference when codifying the information in your map in a different way, for example when using Icons instead of Topic Text for the filtering?

I've only used Topic Text. It's the primary parameter for our map.

OK, I think it might make a big change when trying to filter on Topic Markers instead of text as technically filtering on Topic Markers is something that could be done a lot easier and faster.

Is there any way you could restructure your map to make more use of Topic Markers?

I tried filtering on Topic Markers, which we do use.  Still 1:08 minutes, the same as Topic Text.  BTW, simply clearing the filter takes 1:05.

Somehing else could be wrong.
Have you tried a repair or re-install of MindManager?
This has solved some problems in my systems.
