Is it supposed to take 1 minute to change repo tabs?

v1.9.6.1 on Windows 10

It takes forever to change tabs in the UI. The tabs are already open and cloned, I'm just talking about clicking from one tab to another. The entire UI freezes while I sit waiting. Reproduced on other colleagues machines.

Known issue? Working on a fix? Problem with our Bitbucket repository?

We believe this is a problem due to the Windows Spell Checker. It s described here

We have just released a new beta 1.9.7-beta-2 which incudes a check to clear the invalid dictionary files.

you can access the beta program here

We hope to get the fix out to General Availability before the end of the month.

As a temporary workaround please try disabling the spell checker in the Tools/Options/General tab


Thanks for using SourceTree
