after I updated Visual Studio for Mac 2017 to Version 7.4 (build 1033) the performance gets worse the longer I work. After working for two hours the performance is so bad that working is no longer possible and I have to reboot the system. Restarting Visual Studio alone does not solve the problem.
Example of extreme bad performance behaviour:
The activity monitor shows CPU usage of up to 300% while the system is stuck after hitting a key (see screenshot)
After writing some code (and the delay mentioned above) all text is displayed white (instead of blue, green white etc. of the dark theme). It then takes several seconds before the code is in the correct color again.
I'm using an MacBook Air with Mac OS Sierra (Version 10.12.6). Before the update, everything was smooth, letters appeard instantly after pressing the key, Intelli-sense never took more than maybe half a second to create suggestions.
Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance for your time.
