I've been using WebStorm, trouble free, for years and love it! I recently installed the latest version of WebStorm (2018.2.4) and my IDE constantly freezes up when I do a variety of tasks. I'll be typing some code and it will lock up. I'll be selecting an area to copy and it will freeze up. I will try to copy and paste and it won't. In addition to installing the latest version of WebStorm, I'm also working on a 'new' (not new new, but new to me) project - which could somehow also be the cause.
I've scoured the web and can find no solution that works for me. I tried excluding the ng-modules directories in my project, thinking that perhaps indexing was causing the problem. That seemed to work at first, but that is a bit problematic as I missed out on things like type ahead. I've tried Power Save mode, and that too seemed to help a bit, but that too has its issues.
Is there some simple solution to my problem? Please Help. As it stands, I'm going to have to move to a different IDE.
