I'm having the same problem. It's impossible to work with in this state. I logged on hoping to find a newer build.
What have you been doing when it starts to act this way. Is there a certain thing or has it been just random. Can you provide more info?
You can count me in too
I just updated my Mac OS perhaps that is why we are having this issue?
it's pretty intolerable cannot work at all
No I do not use a mac. Though after some tweaking some settings for the last week I was able to get mine so it performs a lot better. All I did that improved the performance greatly was turn off the auto quotes for attributes and the pairing of characters. Since I did this I haven't had a time where it has froze or crashed. Give it a try and we can see if it helps much
For me it's just random, on XP. I haven't messed with default settings. Program starts running painfully slow to the point where I can't even enter keystrokes, then eventually locks up. I will try turning of the auto-quotes to see if that helps. It's annoying anyway.
