Improve design speed on databases with lots of tables attached
On some clients site I have been working, it's quite frequent to have 200 more linked tables pointing to 2 or 3 different servers (MS or Oracle). In such databases, switching forms/reports to design mode can take a minute or more, clicking in design view in a subform (or back to the main form) takes enough time to grab a coffee. It's often faster to close and reopen in the desired mode than to switch modes.This should be really improved.

Have you tried opening the table from the Navigation Pane and leaving it open while you do your design work. That may help.
