I'm using CLion on a very C++ project (a C++ wrapper for libwebsockets with ~1000loc). CLion is noticeably sluggish in a variety of ways. For example:
- Typed keys and cursor movement has ~250-500ms lag (i.e. I type a lettter and it appears on screen a quarter to a half second later).
- Scrolling through code window is choppy.
- Error and warning highlights are slow to catch up (i.e. I write an erroneuos statement and get a red squiggle. I fix the error and the squiggle stays around - even a minute later).
I'm running CLion 1.03 on a retina iMac with OSX 10.10 which has 4ghz i7, an SSD and 16 gigs of RAM. Is it expected for performance to be so poor on my platform?
