I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled Android Studio but I’m still seeing some weirdness. Basically, whenever I try and create a new resource file AS freezes up and dramatically slows down. I can’t exit out (except by forcing AS to quit) and clicking on any buttons is unresponsive. Any tips around this?

Only things I can think of are to increase AS’s memory or after uninstalling, making sure all of it’s settings files are deleted (On Mac there are several folders in the Library directory)

I may try the second option as increasing the max heap size also involves opening up the preferences menu, which again, freezes up… sigh.
Oh weird. So if I exit from a full-screen, everything seems to work normally and quickly. However, upon entering full-screen again, AS slows down when creating anything new or anything that would appear in a new project tab, such as opening up system preferences.

I’m kind of fed up with AS and all it’s bugs. They really need to fix the basic functionality before they add new features
