Outline using massive amounts of RAM

Hannah Pennington Jan 31, 2018 12:49PM PST

I'm running Outline (3.21.2) on my Mac (High Sierra - 10.13.1). The last few times I've used it the app has caused my computer to use up all the RAM (16gb) and force quit programs.
I've started running activity monitor and notice that the app starts at high memory usage upon startup (3gb), and continues to increase even when open in the background.

Is there some setting I can change so that I don't have to keep quitting outline?

This is happening to me too. Constantly.

Me three. And in the past day, I've had to force-reboot my Mac twice because even when force-quitting Outline, Force Quit still registers Outline as running, which blocks the reboot process.

Is there a ticket number we can track in some fashion?

I am facing high memory consumption too. I have to quit Outline to free memory.
