Tes hanging on occasion

Hi David
Over the past few weeks, Tes has on occasion been hanging. When I look in the Activity Monitor, Tes is using a considerable amount of CPU. If I try to open the clipboard, spinning beach ball appears. Happens on occasion. Usually no issue. Here’s the report via Console. There are a few similar to this one. Thanks for your help

There’s more to this report, but too lengthy to post.

After you restart Tes does it work correctly? I will look into this. Thank you for the detailed report.


First I need to quit Tes via Activity Monitor, then restart. Tes works without issue until the next time it hangs. Haven’t been able to figure out the trigger.

I’d send the entire related console info but I get an error
prompt here…too many characters

I’m working on reproducing this problem. I will let you know when I have a solution.


Thank you. Let me know if there’s anything else I can do from this end to assist you.

Did you discover the cause of the infrequent hang?

I think so. I getting a release together that should be out soon.
