I am in dire need of help with this problem as its becoming extremely painful to work. The issue I'm having is every time I try to type something in the IDE, it hangs for 1 to 4 seconds. I tried turning off code completion, I tried upgrading to the latest version 5.29(i'm currently using 5.25.2). nothing has helped. I tried contacting Keil and even sent them a copy of my project but they could not produce the issue on their side. my laptop is a Lenovo P51 with a Xion Prcoessor so its far from slow. Also, what I noticed in the Task Manager Status column when the IDE hangs, the status will show as "Not Responding" while its hung up. Please, any help will be greatly appreciated.
- Do you see this delay with any project, i.e. the example projects offered by the Pack Installer?
- to what folder do you have installed MDK?
- Do you see this issue on a different PC with your project also?
thank you for your reply! my MDK is installed in my C:\keil_v5 folder. I just installed the heart rate example from the packInstaller and I do NOT experience the issue. other people with the same project are not experiencing this issue at my company. I also frequently push my updates to Github. the few other engineers that use Keil do not upload to Github. I am not sure if that may be causing and/or contributing to this issue. all my personal projects have this issue. but they are some version of my latest project. Also, I do not think its a Github issue because I have always been using it and never had this issue before. Your help is greatly appreciated.
At the moment my focus is not on Git. I consider your project is stored locally. Also, I doubt that a license communication is pending during the delays as obviously other projects are fine.You may however, compare with a Lite-installation in use...Well, tough to comment on, especially as we can't trigger a replication. To be honest - I haven't heart about such delays during editing before - the probably fastest solution at this stage is to exchange your PC.
my PC is new. I dont think going to my supervisor and asking for a new PC is the answer here.
Do you have the Functions Window open (View > Functions Window), visible, and with the option Scan Project Files enabled? (Right click in the functions window to access the context menu and enable/disable that setting.) I've found that the editor can appear to hang while typing as the list of functions is scanned and updated. If the functions window is enabled but hidden or closed then I don't experience a delay.
Thanks Adam, that solved the issue for me.
I to have been experiencing these long delays when editing. I was getting so frustrated I was beginning to consider switching compilers as you can't afford this problem when developing and thinking as you type, it creates havoc for your thought process.
I can't remember now if it began happening with the last update to version 5.29. I do know that I did not change any settings and have never had this issue previously.
Thank you Adam!!!
this solved my problem that i have been chasing for weeks. I cant thank you enough.
