I have noticed that after an extended period of time that Code Writer starts to slow down. For example, opening a document takes several seconds rather than a fraction of a second, despite the fact that I use a solid state drive. Switching between documents also slows down.
Under extreme circumstances I also start having problems with other applications. For example, I start losing my internet connection.
My work habit is to leave Code Writer running all of the time so that it's ready to go when I am, so the only time it restarts is when I am rebooting.
I started keeping a log of the number of open files and the amount of memory in use as shown by Task Manager. Even after a relatively short period I started noticing memory usage creeping upward.
1/10/2013 7:33 PM - 3 open files, 66.1 MB
1/10/2013 9:13 PM - 14 open files, 105.9 MB
1/11/2013 9:39 AM - 6 open files, 147.1 MB
I had planned to keep a longer history, but this seems to be enough evidence that there's a problem.
FYI, the amount of disk space consumed by the last 6 open files is about 100 KB. I mention this just to indicate I don't think it is the size of the files that is causing the large amount of memory usage.
Although I am on the latest release, I did notice the slowdowns in v1.3. I believe it isn't something that just started with the latest release. It just took me a while to figure out why my computer was acting wacky.
Please let me know if there is any way I can help track this down.
