The IDE has been getting slower with each release. The 2018r4 release borders on not usable. I have a very large app but still.... Anyone else experiencing this?
MacPro, 6 core, 64GB, 1TB SSD, MacOS Mojave.
@Dave S I had read other topics where people complained of this... and I had not really seen it myself.... until now. and I have a top end iMac
what did you change in your configuration to have this appear ? only update to r4 ?
It would be nice if you could describe the tasks in the IDE you're seeing that are slow. And what your IDE has open at the time. Are you showing search results? Are you showing all breakpoints or bookmarks?
The more detail you can give us the more likely it is we can isolate some specific causes. "The IDE is slow" isn't detailed enough to know what to even go looking for.
We do know that there are some specific things, like groupboxes in dark mode, that we are looking into. At this time it's unclear what we can do as this specific issue also affects Xcode in dark mode.
Similar for me. Not a lot of windows but it's a tabbed interface with subtabs on several pages. Project size is only ~15MB but there are many, many controls. Several control arrays (labels). Clicking on a control takes averages 5+ sec before it becomes active. Adding a control takes 5+ seconds. Moving a control is hard because there is so much lag I have to use the cursor keys to get it into the final position. No dark mode; very few groupboxes. The delay when loading the project in r4 is far longer than previous releases - takes so long I initially thought it may have hung - ~65 seconds.
If anyone sees this happen again, do me a favour and just check if you have Breakpoints or Bookmarks currently visible in the bottom nav. If you do, try closing the bottom nav by clicking the magnifying glass at the bottom in the middle and see if that instantly speeds up your typing. It just did here, totally related to Feedback Case #54507 but its been changed to a feature request so /shrug

Yes, I am aware of this quite some time already. (Win10) Having the bottom pane open with items in it, especially the Find-pane, slows down everything. I keep it shut while typing code.
@Joost R I keep it shut while typing code.
Check it, but I think there is a preference to keep it closed… in Xojo 2018r4. (I do not found the RN entry).
Check in the Preferences: Debugging --> Hide Search / Warning / Message Pane on run and change its settings, eventually.
