Hi, recently we upgraded OmegaT in our office to the 3.1.9 version and in the past week or two (not straight after the upgrade) several people in our office experienced significant slow-down of its processes, mainly loading while opening, creating translated files etc. It just doesn´t run as smooth as it used to. The strange thing is that it doesn´t influence everybody the same way. Has it happened to anyone? Any tips what it could be and what to do? Thank you in advance.

What was the previous version?

If it's a memory allocation issue, it can happen to anyone. Memory requirements change from one version to another (they generally increase, as new features are added). What was enough for a given version might not be enough for the next one.

Any tips what it could be and what to do? Thank you in advance.

If not enough memory is allocated to a Java program (such as OmegaT), unpredictable results (such as slowness) can occur.

Check the memory allocation on each machine.

It is generally a good idea to allocate as much memory as you can. The limit depends on the operating system and on the physical memory available. If too much memory is allocated, OmegaT won't start. In that case, simply decrease the memory allocated.
