I am working on a very simple document consisting mostly of rectangles. I have maybe only 200 or 300 objects in my artboard so far, but copy/pasting, then dragging the duplicated objects into position is almost impossible because the snapping guides are slow to calculate. I have by no means a sluggish machine (i7 with 32GB RAM and SSD drive). Any suggestions on improving performance of snapping guides?

What Snapping Manager settings are you using? Can you open it from the View menu & post a screenshot of its window so we can see what they are? It may be that you have snapping set to try to snap to too many different things for the calculations to occur quickly.
