Maps with JSON output cards are building very slowly

I have some maps in the design studio.  They take 15 minutes each to build.  While the build is occurring you can see exactly what is being checked in each map - that's how slow the build is.  I have never come across this before.  Normally you can't see any details at all while the map is building as it happens so fast.  I have tried many things, but the one thing that I notice is that the output card is JSON.  When I switch the output card to a regular type tree, it compiles very quickly.  We really need this addressed as 15 minutes of compilation is really impacting our development abilities.

What is your industry? Non-Industry Specific
How will this idea be used?

As a heavy user of TX, I build maps in the Design Studio all the time.  Addressing this issue will really make all of us more productive.
