I'm trying to create a set of polygons off of lines I have already drawn. The project file size isn't very big (3 mb I think) yet each time I try to switch over to the "snap to lines" setting the program stalls and there is a message that says "Auto-Draw is being turned off cause it has taken too long to generate a route map".

Iv'e tried It with multiple browsers and on 2 devices with the same results. Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you!!

    What's the map ID? I can take a look.

    Normally this happens if you have polygons or lines with overlapping edges. The routing system is mostly designed around handling imperfect OpenStreetMap road / trail data, and tries to split the lines every place they touch - if you have two lines that touch each other for an extended distance, this can grind it to a halt.
