PI takes minutes to quit on Mac
« on: 2017 July 08 07:03:48 »
This came up in a workshop I went to a little while ago.  Most Mac users there had noticed that PI can take multiple minutes to quit.  The application seems to quit, but the little dot in the Dock stays active for quite a while, then eventually quits entirely. 

I can only assume this has come up before?   Is this a known issue or is there a fix?

Hi Mike,

Yes, this is a known issue with the current 1.8.4 version. This problem has been completely fixed in version 1.8.5, which will be released very soon. So I ask for a bit of patience.

A workaround is to perform a reset of application settings. right-click (or Ctrl-click) the application bundle (or the corresponding icon on the dock), then keep the Ctrl key pressed while you select Open from the context menu. Accept the confirmation dialog. This will clear all application settings and quitting the application will be much faster. As I've said, this won't happen with version 1.8.5. Sorry for the trouble.
