When selecting SQL files in pathfinder the activity goes really up on my Macbook Pro, even when I deselect it after a short time. The only thing which solves the performance issue is to close pathfinder and open it again.
I mean of course if a SQL files from an CMS has 100 MB or so, this needs power. But when deselecting this file, performance consume should go back and not remain.

    Hi Florian, 

    Thanks for reporting this!

    How large are the files you are accessing? What would be the steps to reproduce this issue?

    Could you send us a sample (a snapshot) of Path Finder process in a separate file? This will enable us to analyze what happens with the application. Here's how to get it:

    1. Open Path Finder and reproduce the problem.
    2. Open Activity Monitor from the /Applications/Utilities folder.
    3. Select Path Finder in the process list. To help making a selection, type "Path Finder" in the Filter field.
    4. Click the Sample Process button in the toolbar - this will open a new window entitled "Sample of Path Finder" and a sample of the process is collected.
    5. Click Save and save the sample file.
    6. Close (Command-W) the Sample window opened in step 2.
    7. Send the sample file saved in step 5 to us.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Best Regards,
    Path Finder Support Team
