Very slow typing in 'define fields'


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OSX 10.8.2/10.8.3

Description of the issue

When working for a while, typing is getting really sloow when entering (i.e) a new field name.

happens on a MacBook Air - but as well on a i7 brand new MacMini.

Can anybody confirm this?

Working with data is fast, just 'define fields', formula editor is affected. I have disabeled Typinator, mbs plugin, no change. The MacBook is just a vanilla testmachine, no Plugins, nothing like typinator et all

Steps to reproduce the problem

open a db with some fields, relationships, etc. Work for a while. happens on converted DB's as well as  under V12 new created db's

Expected result

typing fast, letters appear as they have been typed

Actual result

sloooow. Letters appear secons after typing. almost impossibe to work

Configuration information

OSX, MacBook, MacBook Air, MacMini i7
