Outline using high CPU

Brett Dec 01, 2016 03:37PM PST

Hello! I noticed my MacBook Pro's fans kicking on frequently, and found that Outline is using nearly 100% of a CPU almost all the time, and frequently spikes to ~150%.

I have only a couple of notebooks with a few pages, and maybe three imported images.

Is this a known issue, or an anomaly on my end?

Hi Brett,

We apologise for this situation.

We're investigating it.
It can be the new branch we've just merged to the live version of the app.
Or - there might be some corrupted section that syncs and tries to get merged constantly.

Do you have any abnormalities in any section?

And we plan to start working with CPU improvements next year - from January.

I am seeing this same problem and am using version 3.21.1

I haven't even touched outline in a few days, just have it open...and yet it is consuming 150%+ CPU doing _nothing_. I have to close it and restart it to fix this, until it happens again for no cause.

This is REALLY getting annoying.
