Hey guys, so I’ve been using REAL Studio 2010 for a long time. Recently I’ve been updating some large projects to Xojo 2018R2 for Cocoa and 64 bit. But I’m having a very frustrating issue. The Xojo 2018R2 IDE is extremely slow. Between clicking on a control in the window layout editor and having the control selected, there’s 1-3 seconds of delay. Typing is slow, and has trouble keeping up with my fingers, dragging is non-responsive half the time, and many other things just feel incredibly slugish. I went back to RS 2010 to compare, and it is lightening fast. Everything I click responds instantly, and typing is also 100% responsive.
And finally, when compiling, it takes a very long time. I know 64 bit takes longer, but I can seriously click the Run button, walk away, get a drink, grab a snack, come back, check some websites, and maybe 3-5 minutes later it’s finally running. Even things like quitting a running debug application, and quitting Xojo itself, feel very unresponsive and delayed.
I’ve checked the standard things - monitor memory, restart Xojo regularly, restart my computer, but nothing seems to improve performance. As it is, I cannot work in any meaningful or efficient way like this. Has anyone had any similar experiences, or any suggestions for how to fix this?
I’m on a 2016 MacBook Pro Touch Bar 2.9GHz i7 with 16GB RAM, running on an SSD. I also experience the same performance issues on a 27" iMac 5K, 4GHz i7 with 32GB RAM.
I’m really looking forward to getting my projects updated, and renewing my Xojo subscription for 2018R2, but I need these performance issues resolved first.
Any insight would be extremely appreciated.
