Too slow while comparing folder/text file

    I find window scrolling to be painfully slow (especially in text comparison windows.) I've been using Beyond Compare on the Mac since it came out (and on Windows for years before that) and only recently came to feel that scrolling is no longer a zippy as it used to be.

      and inline editing of text files is not excruciatingly slow. I'm running BC4 Version 4.2.4 (build 22795) on macOS Sierra 10.12.6 (16G1314)

        Thanks for the report. We have had a couple in this thread, but haven't narrowed down the exact causes yet. What hardware configuration are you running? What resolution are you running at; if you decrease it do you see a performance increase?

          I've tried disconnecting all external monitors and resetting the built-in retina display to its default resolution. After doing that I also tried quitting a restarting BC4. Nothing helped.

            First, back up your settings using the Tools menu -> Export wizard and export everything as a BCSettings.bcpkg. Then try Tools menu -> Restore to Factory Defaults. Fully reboot your machine, and then restart BC4 with a simple text comparison by loading BC4 first, loading a blank text compare, and then loading a pair of plain .txt files into the compare. How does this behave? We can then re-work in your previous workflow or settings a few at a time to try and find the offending culprit.
