Slow, laggy typing


I recently finished my demo of PHP Storm and paid for the license, and now I'm having serious problems with slow/laggy typing. The program hangs for half a second to a second every few characters. It's pretty intolerable. I have the problem on both verison 7.1.1 and 6.0.3. I didn't have this problem at all, previously. Java version is listed as Java HotSpot 1.6.0_65 (although I have 1.7 installed on my machine).

I've tried disabling all inspections and syntax highlighting and the problem still remains. I have plenty of memory and cpu cycles.

I'm on a Macbook Pro 2.53 Ghz Intel Core i5 with 8 GB memory running OSX 1.8.5.

Any suggestions? Anybody else having this problem? I was really enjoying PHP Storm until this started, and now it's basically unusable.

I have tried increaseing the heap size. I went up to 2048M. The IDE is using about 150-200M.

Try File | Invalidate caches.
If issue remains please provide cpu snapshots and thread dumps for the investigation as described in the document and
log files

Make sure you don't use network drives for storing settings or project files.

I have same issue for WebStorm 8.  I am looking for solution/answer here around.  But it is interesting to find out that in this forum it seems always advise for uploading CPU snapshot since 2010 or earlier post.  Could not find an solution till today, May, 2014.

Why you guys spend so many years and still doing analysis and still no clue?

I never nailed down the exact problem, but it had something to do with a clone of a GIT repo that I had imported (that had a lot of files in it). When I disconnected the repo, the lag went away.
