No wonder I am getting memory errors. PF8 is using over 30GB of memory on a 16GB system. I've already turned off colorize syntax in preview settings and calculate all sizes was already off.

System info: 2017 15-inch MacBook Pro, 3.1 GHz i7, 16 GB RAM, Radeon Pro 560 + integrated Intel HD 630 graphics, 1 TB SSD, macOS Mojave 10.14.2.

    Hi Steven, 

    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,

    I think it may have been related to the photo browser module. Once I stopped using that and rebooted, it seems to have settled down.
