Import of Gedcom takes forever.

I have the demo version.

I imported my gedcomfile that contains around 10000 families and 30000 persons.
Now it is on "Arranging new families" it has reached 100% but has been staying there for several hours, the hourglass is moving.

Kith and Kin Pro does examine the incoming GEDCOM tree several times whilst attempting to arrange the new family rectangles. In a very large tree it is possible that this could take a long time.

However, it is also possible that there is something in the GEDCOM data which is causing K&KPro to loop. Would you be able to re-export your GEDCOM as smaller files and import each one into K&KPro?
