Very slow desktop model - Unresponsive

I have a desktop shared power bi data model (no reports or visuals) which has become very slow, for example,  when clicking add new measure, it shows "working on it" for a few minutes (before the measure has even been typed), its so slow it is impossible to add a measure without going through tabular editor, which instantly adds the measure.  The model is all import - but not doing a refresh, just opening the model on desktop causes the issue.

 

Are there any suggestions as to what can be causing this and what settings I can adjust to fix the issue?

 

Auto data/time is off, as is Q&A, cache and Data load settings are default.

Using DAX Studio, the Total size in Memory is only 246 MB. I have the latest version of desktop, running off an intel core i7 laptop with 16GB of RAM on windows 11.

@amitchandak thank you so much for your reply and suggestions - I have tried all of these but the problem remains, are there any others that perhaps may solve it?

@Kletzy , 1. You can go and increase Data Cache (8-10 GB)  Under file -> Options & Settings -> Options.

2. Pause visual under optimize

Prefer to load fewer data on desktop and more on service. Refer these from GuyinaCube
