2013.1 Vivado - The Vivado IDE appears to hang when opening the Timing Constraints view

Description

After opening the synthesis design, I open the Timing Constraints view (Window -> Timing Constraints). The GUI appears to be locked with the pull-down menu still displayed.

Solution

In many instances the Vivado IDE appeared to hang due to length of time taken to open up the design and evaluate the constraints.
In 2013.2, Vivado preserves the scope/current instance information for constraints and does not expand those while showing in timing editor window or during checkpoint writing. This makes the Timing Editor window more responsive.
