Super laggy script editor


Are you by any chance using a 2016+ MBP?


Yes sir


@alexnewtron had this exact same issue although I don’t know how/if he solved it. I pinged him but he isn’t online atm so I’ll drop a mention here.


The only solutions for now are:

  1. Use a 1080p monitor. This issue seems to be related to the DPI of the Macbook Pro built-in retina display, or any monitor with a high enough DPI. So 1080p is recommended.

  2. Lower the scaling of your Built-in retina display. Under macOS Settings -> Display -> Resolution: Scaled
    This solution isn’t perfect though, and there is still some lag but not as much.

or 3. Change your Color Profile

Known issue for Macbooks running macOS 10.12 (Sierra) and higher

Please see this thread:


unparenting works for me, thank you
at least it’s now usable
Still would be nice if ROBLOX actually fixed this…


Its been nearly 6 months :no_mouth:

High Sierra Issues Makes Studio Unusable

This was a tough problem to solve and went through multiple rounds of discussion within the company. We finally think we fixed some issues by backporting a patch from Qt 5.9. This will be going out early next year.

Team Create silently disconnected me for 2 days and erased my work

The fix for this should be out. Please let us know in this thread (Known issue for Macbooks running macOS 10.12 (Sierra) and higher) if you continue to have issues.


It appear to have remerged…
Script editor is super laggy again…


Oh no… :scream:

I will re-open the ticket internally.


It appears the old work around of changing the colour profile still works.
