I am not personally using Bug Sur but if you make a standalone does it leak memory too or is this only with the development system? JB > On Mar 26, 2021, at 7:29 PM, scott--- via use-livecode > wrote: > > I’m running Big Sur and just got a warning from the OS that I was out of >

I’m running Big Sur and just got a warning from the OS that I was out of application memory. Livecode was using 133.52 GB of memory. It had been open for a couple days but it wasn’t doing anything. -- Scott Morrow Elementary Software (Now with 20% less chalk dust!) web

Sean, The stack was not running anything. It was simply opened. I don’t believe it would leak like that. Anyway, I’m monitoring to see if it happens again. A > On 26 Mar 2021, at 13:01, Sean Cole (Pi) via use-livecode > wrote: > > Wow, Andre, that's impressive. That amounts to about 34MB

Wow, Andre, that's impressive. That amounts to about 34MB per minute over 48hrs. I've had a pretty massive stack (226MB file at the moment) on my Mac sitting here over the last week. Looking in the activity monitor, LC has 987MB associated with it. and watching it over a period of time it remains
