Major performance problems when running PhpStorm on a scaled resolution

Link –

It's very frustrating I can't use a scaled resolution on my Mac because of PhpStorm.

PhpStorm has had performance issues on OSX for a very long time now, sometimes to the point of being unusable. I've written about these issues before, but it's good to keep a regularly updated list of what's going on. So without further ado: if you're on OSX (Sierra, High Sierra or Mojave); if you're experiencing PhpStorm performance issues, this post might help you.

Follow me on Twitter. I regularly tweet out programming tips, and what I myself have learned in ongoing projects.

Every two weeks I send out a newsletter containing lots of interesting stuff for the modern PHP developer.

Expect quick tips & tricks, interesting tutorials, opinions and packages. Because I work with Laravel every day there is an emphasis on that framework.

Rest assured that I will only use your email address to send you the newsletter and will not use it for any other purposes.
