Not sure if you realized that loading the drawing also loads the model. Depending on the complexity of the model, subassemblies, family tables, ...... this may take a while to load (and hence the "blinking").
If this is not what is going on, we may need more information.
Yes I am aware that the assembly opens also. This is only happening on 1 of 5 users that are connected to the same network. My first thought was to reconfigure the software, but I am currently having some issues with that.
