Since upgrading to PHPStorm 2018.1, running on the latest 64-bit JVM from Jetbrains, I'm finding the UI to become very slow when the Version Control Log tab is open. The entire UI slows a little and scrolling the log list is extremely slow.
Edit: I discovered this is only an issue on my secondary displays. On my Macbook Pro's pro's built-in laptop monitor there is no UI slowdown.
I'm wondering if there's a way to limit the length of the version control log when integrated with git. I've set the Version Control -> Limit history to 200 and the Version Control -> Background -> Changelists to cache initially to 200 but I still get the complete git history. Any way to limit the displayed list or improve performance of this tab?
