    The new Editor > Font settings page gets a huge scrollbar when clicked and slows down the entire IDE tremendously. If left open for a little while I think it eats all the memory and the IDE stops responding completely. macOS 10.12.5. Had the same issue before the RC.

      Please try to remove your settings from the corresponding directory ( ) and check if you will be able to reproduce this.

        I just did a fresh install, both the Application Support and the Preferences folder removed and I chose not to import any settings on first start.

        It was fine initially, but then I changed a few settings and it was back. I did not install any plugins. Just changes in Appearance and Editor settings. Not sure how to debug this further?

          Same for me, fresh install on Mac, allocated 3gb memory but it just keeps eating it until it doesn’t respond. Have reverted back to 2017.1.4 for now
