    I don’t know if anyone else has experienced this – but with this release, any time I type even a single character into a build.gradle file, the memory usage and cpu usage spike, and the IDE becomes frozen for about 15-30 seconds. No error messages are recorded. After the wait, the IDE returns to normal (unless I write a single character into build.gradle again). Any idea for troubleshooting?

    2018.2.1 has major problems (Mac OS version). How to I downgrade to 2018.2?

    2018.2.1 keeps locking up (buttons stop responding, can still move dialog windows but no interface elements respond). I have to Force Quit the app, then when I restart I have to import my project like it is brand new even though the intellij .idea directory is there.
