I would like to use AppCode to develop a modest C++ codebase. I have been doing this with partial success (I like AppCode), but I find that it is sometimes prone to user interface lag and crashes. For example, when using the editor, the interface can repeatedly become unresponsive for order seconds to minutes. Sometimes it never recovers at all, and I must use Force Quit before beginning a new session. The behaviour is inconsistent: sometimes I can go for a few days without encountering it; sometimes it happens after nearly every keypress.
I am currently using AppCode 2.5.2, but I have been observing this behaviour for several months since at least 2.1.1 over various versions of OS X 10.8 and 10.9. It seems to have become worse after upgrading to 2.5.2, which has prompted this post.
Can I ask if anyone has encountered similar behaviour, and, if so, whether it was possible to fix it?
