Memory behaving strangely

First let me say that QGIS 2.12 is probably the most stable QGIS version ever under MacOSX. I'm using it in the latest update of El Capitan and it's very stable. The only thing that worries me a bit is that, after some work done, if we edit a shapefile layer (attributes or geometry), QGIS will take a long time to save. This will happen even with very simple layers. There's possible something to be done here related with memory management. A restart in QGIS solve things but it would be better to avoid this. Despite this behavior, everything is working great.

Do you have any plugins enabled?

#2 Updated by Rhenriques Henriques over 8 years ago

Yes Nathan, a lot of them. I need most of them all :-)
It can be a plugin that is causing this issue, yes. The problem is that it takes some dozen of minutes of work to notice any slowdown. So it will be difficult to trace back the culprit by activate and deactivate sets of plug-ins. Do you have a possible suspect?

The "rectangles, ovals,..." plugin is one culprit I'm aware of

Hi Nyall

I've been working today without "rectangles, ovals..." installed. Did not work for too long but the problem did not show up again. In the next few days I'll be working harder with QGIS and I'll have a chance to test if this was the cause.
