I have updated my Android Studio to
Android Studio Electric Eel | 2022.1.1 Canary 8 Build #AI-221.5921.22.2211.8786657, built on June 30, 2022 Runtime version: 11.0.13+0-b1751.21-8125866 x86_64 VM: OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM by JetBrains s.r.o. macOS 10.15.7 GC: G1 Young Generation, G1 Old Generation Memory: 4096M Cores: 12 Registry: external.system.auto.import.disabled=true ide.text.editor.with.preview.show.floating.toolbar=false ide.images.show.chessboard=true Non-Bundled Plugins: com.android.aas (3.5.1)
and now it is extremely slow to respond to any code change, e.g. it takes minutes to properly highlight any code following the simplest of refactors.
i have also noticed that it is showing git information within all my code files.
I do not know how i have configured this change, however i have a feeling its because of this git integration that my development is now painfully slow.
has anybody else experienced a degradation in responsiveness since updating to this latest version of android studio?
how can i get back to being able to be productive?
Beacuse this is a Canary Build of Android Studio, the perfomance can not be expected to be on par with the other versions. The best thing you can do is to consider downgrading to Android Studio Dolphin until the new version is in stable release.
Also the sluggish performance can come from the new Live Code feature:
that makes building obsolete. Due to the feature not being finished, it might be that the coding experience you have might be bad.
