Sublime Text freezes Mac OSX 10.11.6 every 10-15 min

#1

I am using sublime Text 3 on my Mac OSX 10.11.6 and it freezes every 10-15 minutes. After approximately 30 seconds it returns to its normal state. It even happens with projects with few files.
I have tried all possible solutions, including returning to a fresh state.
It is very frustrating to work like this.
Has anyone managed to solve the problem in some other way?

Dear Manuel,
I do not have any trouble with Sublime Text 3 (Build 3211) under OSX 10.11.6 ,
with proviso, I use this Sublime Text 3.app only for LaTeX compiling.

Might I suggest that turning OFF your “show_definitions” ??
It seems worth a try !!

Sublime Text > Preferences >
SettingsPreferences.sublime-settings - User

Preferences.sublime-settings
{
“show_definitions”: false
}

Another possibility.
To delete the installed latest Package.

I hope you find it informative from [https://packagecontrol.io/installation].
(Example is better than precept.)
I hope it will comes in useful for you.
Good luck!
With kind regards, WAKAMATSU kunimitsu from Japan.

Have you tried using "index_files": false? Are you using a network drive? Which version of Sublime Text are you using?

Thanks bschaaf,

I’ve tried all.
I’m not using any network drive. My version is 3.2.2 build 3211. Purchased, registered…

This are my definitions:
{
“font_size”: 13,
“ignored_packages”:
[
“Vintage”
],

"show_definitions": false,
"index_files": false

}

Are you seeing high CPU usage when Sublime Text freezes?

Thanks bschaaf,
With the OSX activity monitor I can see that there is no CPU consumption, there is no memory consumption, there is no disk usage, there is no network data transfer …
Simply in the Sublime text task it indicates “not responding”
After about 20 seconds it responds again. It happens every 5-10 minutes …

Are you able to provide a process sample when this is happening? A process sample can be taken through the Activity Monitor.

Looks like it’s getting stuck waiting for a plugin to respond. Are you sure you tried reverting to a freshly installed state? Reinstalling does not revert to a freshly installed state.
