Robert,
        the other productivity enhancement in PCB is to hide your large
nets, typically GND. To do this select nets in the explorer pane, double
click on the net (GND), select hide. This will remove those delays where the
status bar at the bottom of the page reads "analyzing net GND". Similarly
you can do the same for large Vcc or Vdd nets.

Sincerely,
Brad Velander.
