I have been having issues with L6 and processor usage. Until now I had assumed that the problem was with L6 in general. If I open L6 my processor use would spike to 200% and then after 10 seconds or so drop down to a 68%-80% fluctuating. Previously with L5 It usually hovered around 20%-30%. I decided to rebuild my layout in case the problem was a corrupt layout. While doing this I discovered that opening a note file takes L6 from a resting state of 0%-3% up to 70%. This is the same whether opening a very large note file (several hundred sub-notes) or simply opening a brand new unnamed note file with no data whatsoever. As soon as I close the note file, the processor drops back down to a much more normal rate.

Can anybody else verify this?

I don't see this on Windows running the beta of 6.0b

Opening a Notesfile takes processor utilisation up to around 7% and then it drops back to zero with the notesfile still open

I have a similar setup, but can't replicate your CPU issues. Note files do nothing to increase CPU utilization on my machine. I am running OS X 10.10, though.

@Graham - Thank you for checking, I am not surprised to hear that it is working on windows, but glad for your sake!

@JH - I have been delaying upgrading to 10.10 for what I believe are good reasons, but may have to revisit that in the near future.

Hopefully one of the Mac developers will catch this issue and take care of it!

Hi Tim

I am running 10.10 and have no problems with CPU usage.

Unlikely - the heading doesn't mark it as a bug.

I would take a side bet that if they did come along this way the first request would be for you to provide some logs.

That is a series:

1. archived logs (after turning logging on)

2. Sample blank layout

3. Sample note open

4. Sample blank layout (after closing note)

5. Archived logs again

It looks like I have one more than I have listed and explanation for, but that should help more or less explain what I was trying to do.

I'm on the same, and I don't see it either.

@fgh - I have been working with Faithlife tech support on this specific issue and we have identified that this occurs only when notes are in the split view. If you have not upgraded to 10.10, would you mind checking to see if having a note open in split view spikes your processor use?
