Interaction with Script Editor really laggy on Windows


Whenever I open a script in studio I experience lag when moving my mouse or typing, but it only occurs in the script editor. I normally experience no lag when using studio’s script editor, but now it is occurring every time. It makes it extremely difficult to write code to the point where I’m just pasting the code from another text editor.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open any game in Studio (Could even be an empty baseplate)
  2. Create a Script object in any Explorer section i.e. Workspace, ServerScriptService, etc
  3. Double click to open the script
  4. Attempt to move the mouse or type while the script’s tab is open

I’m using a PC running Windows 10 (Not the Mac issues that had previously occurred) and I’ve tried reinstalling several times.

System specs:
CPU: i7-8700K @ 3.7 GHz
GPU: Nvidia 1080-Ti
OS: Windows 10 Pro

I uninstalled ROBLOX Studio last week and just reinstalled it yesterday and this issue started happening.

  • Does this happen with all plugins uninstalled?
  • Does this happen with autocomplete disabled?


Yes, it occurs in both cases.
