I don’t mean that my development is slowing down, but the Makecode application on my laptop screen gets slow. For example, I may have 10 groups of Makecode block instructions on my screen. I move them about (all at once) by dragging the screen background with the mouse, and they move quite responsively. However, after a few hours of working on the project, I find that if I try to move things around the screen, I click the mouse then move it a couple of inches - and nothing happens. I hold the position and wait, then after a few seconds (up to 5 or 6 sec), the objects on the screen move. Similarly, resizing the screen is slow.
If I exit the application, then restart it and reload my project, it all works quickly again.
It always follows the same pattern - fast at first, but gets slower and slower as time goes by, until it is almost unusable and I am forced to restart it.
A gradual slowing like this looks like running out of resources due to a memory leak, but it’s really slow at the moment, and I have just checked the PC memory, and it is using 2.8GB out of 8GB, so it’s not the PC running low on memory. Also, other applications (web browser, etc) seem to be working normally. However - 9i notice that if I look at the memory graph after I have moved objects, the procedure is very memory-intensive. I would include a picture, but this forum doesn’t seem to have that possibility.
For reference, I’m writing diddies for the Maqueen robotic car, which uses a Micro:bit V2.
Any thoughts? Having to restart is a pain, as I have to reload extensions each time a well.
