Typing text / text entry is slow and lagging in new Mac 10.3.6 version

Recommended Posts

When I am typing at the end a longer note, my typing is faster than the software can display my typing. Performance in keeping up with typing / text entry is much slower in this new Mac version. I am not an especially fast typist; but the Evernote typing responsiveness in the new version is noticeably much slower than the old version. While I am typing, the characters I am typing do not appear until several seconds after I type them. If I pause in my typing, the app does catch up in a few seconds, but this is annoying to the point of "note typing not  being usable". This problem is intermittent but happens often. It definitely seems to be associated with text entry in larger notes rather than in smaller notes. I do NOT have lots of other apps or Windows open on my Mac when the problem occurs. In fact, when I tried running Evernote as the ONLY app open on my Mac, this problem recurred in the same way. Also, Evernote is the only Mac app that is experiencing this typing / performance slowdown. All my other Mac apps are performing at full speed. The old Evernote for Mac version did have this happen sometimes, but rarely. It happens every few lines of text entry in this version.

Specific example: Today I experienced significant typing lag in a text only note where "info box" says  is "Size 557 KB - 84,682 words - 472,390 characters".

I upgraded to the new Mac version yesterday. So far it is (otherwise) working OK and I generally like the improvements so far. But this typing lag in long notes is a deal killer for me.
