New file window takes too long to load

When I press Control+N to create a new file, it takes more than 4-5 seconds to load the New File window depending upon the Clipboard data. It used it be super quick but after the last CC update, it became like this. Also the title of the New File window looks corrupted. Please check the screenshot attached for the same.

This has been a pretty big complaint with 2017. I think I saw a post where they said they were aware of the issue and were in the process of dealing with it, but I can't be sure. I would have to look for it.

That beings said, it seems to me that this 2017 update sacrificed efficiency and usability for novelty. Yeah, the new file dialog is pretty slick, but it's extremely inefficient and completely unnecessary. The cost far outweighs the benefit. I think people hear "3-4" seconds and they brush it off, but we live in a very fast-paced industry and when you're creating 10s to 100s of documents a day, those seconds add up.

Anyhow, that's just my opinion on the matter. I would like to see the speed improved as well, as it is an issue. I know the engineers and coders have a very difficult job working on a program that is so complex, but it's still frustrating from an end-user standpoint.
