ide slow to open cs files

I am running Xamarin studio on the latest MacBook pro with i5 and 8gb ram. I find open standard cs files is very slow. usually around 2/3 seconds which seems ridiculous considering i am using an SSD. Is there some settings i can tweak to speed up the editor or whatever mechanism is opening the files? I really can't go on like this. Every other app on the system runs very fast and i have tried the usual stuff like rebooting the machine and closing/reopening the app. The issues are there from startup.

    Is it all C# files in all projects types, or are there specific cases where it's worse? Are there any errors in the log file?

    Issue actually went away itself. I have had it a few times though. The project i was working with was a Tamarin.iOS project contained in a solution with multiple PCL projects.
