I have updated both my macbook pro and pixelmator's software but the software is really laggy when trying to use my files.

OS X El Capitan10.11.2 (15C50)

MacBook Pro (13-inch, Early 2011)
2.3 GHz Intel Core i5
16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB

Version 3.4.2 Twist (51215)

Thanks for your help.

Sorry to hear this is happening. Can you tell us the size (width and height in pixels) of the images you're trying to edit?

Having the very slow problem as well.

Any change I make takes about 5-10 seconds to come through. During this time I get the spinning wheel.

Pixelmator Version 3.4.2 Twist (51215)

MacBook Pro (13-inch, Early 2011)
Processor: 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7Memory: 8 GB 1333 MHz DDR3SSD drive
Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB
Image size (overall): 3508 x 2480
Resolution: 300
Canvas size is A4

I've added the pxmfile.

Hope you have an answer of fix.

In addition to my previous post,

When doing something simple like save or switch a layer on or off, Pixelmater takes up all of my cpu resources. Up to 100%. After performing the action (e.g. the save) it takes about5-10 seconds to switch back to a normal level.

Even opening the previous mentiondfile takes 5-10 secs.
This file has 31 layers with either text or a simple image or color block.

When I open a simpler file, with only 2 or 3 layers I don't experience the delays.

Hope this helps.
