Memory use

Is it normal for PF8 to be using a large amount of memory? It increases significantly when using the dual browser but does not drop back when dual browser mode is closed.
At present it is using 1.69Gb, before using the dual browser it was about 700Mb. If I quit PF and relaunch it drops back to the 700 area.

Model: iMac15,1
OS Version: macOS 10.14.1 (18B75)
Processor: 4 GHz Intel Core i7
Memory: 24 GB

    Hi Pat, 

    Please choose a .txt file, open Preview module preferences (gear button next to its header) and uncheck "Colorize syntax". 

    Also, it may be worth trying to restore defaults for View Settings (cmd+J).
    Make sure to have "Calculate all sizes" unchecked here. 

    Sorry for the inconvenience. Please feel free to write us back and we will be happy to assist you.

    Best Regards,

    Hi
    I did as you suggested and then relaunched PF8. It is again at 1.24Gb.

    I had hoped that v8.5 would fix this but after a couple of hours of use it is using 3.7Gb RAM. Uninstalled and back to finder.
