Joplin on Windows slows down?

I am using Joplin for Windows. I feel that ever since the release late last year or early this year (sorry I cannot recall the exact release), Joplin has slowed down a lot. When I am typing, especially typing Latex, it often takes a few seconds lag for the rendered version to show up. Does anyone else experience the same thing?

There was this, but they didn’t put much detail.

That was exactly my issue!

More details are helpful, even if no one can help you straight away.

Some ideas might be

  • version numbers of Joplin,
  • log files,
  • does it happen 100% of the time,
  • how big your database file is,
  • what version of windows are you using,
  • info about your computer (eg how much RAM do you have, CPU, hard disk size and space left)?
  • Version: 1.0.179 (but it happened on earlier versions starting late December or early Jan. I cannot remember from which exact version the problem start happening.
  • It happens 100% of the time
  • Database is not very big. About 300-400 items
  • Latest version of Windows 10
  • 16GB ram; Intel i7-2600; 1TB with 200 GB left

Looks OK, so next thing is to check the logs and console for unusual error messages:

The log files are here c:\Users\YOUR_NAME\.config\joplin-desktop

The console can be accessed like this

There are three logs. I checked all of them. Nothing unusual seems to pop up. The only thing a bit strange is below. I don’t think that is a big deal.
