Devonthink keeps hanging on me, using 80% cpu for about a minute before unfreezing. I think it is saving a PDF I’m working on.
I don’t remember Devonthink doing this before. I imported a PDF+Text (17 MB) yesterday. I’m reading and highlighting it.
As I got I’m taking notes in an Annotation document, and copying and pasting choice quotes from the highlighted PDF.
Frequently when I switch to my Annotation document Devonthink freezes, for less than a minute, but quite annoying. Then it unfreezes and seems fine.
If I do a “Save” while in the PDF it does a similar freeze, so I think it is trying to save the PDF before I can switch to the other document. Is this behaviour expected and necessary?
Is there something about this PDF that’s causing this? I note that I have other 17MB and bigger documents, but this one has 300 pages compressed in there. Others with the same file-size but far fewer pages must have bigger file-size/page?
Any way to tame this many-paged pdf? Or, I could just realize it’s unusually needy.
