    Getting some logs would be helpful.

    In Terminal, run the following command:

    kill -QUIT pid

    where pid is the process id for Visual Studio for Mac. You can get the process ID for VS for Mac in Activity Monitor app/ Look for Visual Studio in the Process Name column and get the pid from the pid column. This should cause Visual Studio to dump a stack trace to the logs. After running that command, get the ide logs which you can find with the Help-> Open Log Directory in VS for Mac.

    Also note that while executing the kill -QUIT pid command does not actually kill the VS for Mac process, it does leave it in an unstable state so it should be restarted before continuing work.
