I haven't got chrome but tested in FF, IE11 and NW and haven't noticed anything adverse in either the latest build of C2 or in previewing.

Have you installed any chrome addons recently?

What does Task manager say for cpu/memory utilization?

Can't reproduce here. The attached .capx is running the first layout within about 2 seconds of pressing preview on Chrome, Firefox and IE11. I'm on Windows 8.1 64-bit here.

AFTER previewing the capx, CONSTRUCT 2 runs slower, not the preview. The preview runs with no issues, it's construct 2 that runs slowly.

I'll just put this here...

"Steps to Reproduce Bug
Step 1: load .capx
Step 2: preview in browser (Chrome) then close preview
Step 3 etc. You can best see the problem in the event sheet, scroll up and down, and try to change some events, everything is a lot slower and unresponsive"

As I said before, no issue observed in editor after running multiple previews to different browsers.

Thanks Zenox, I just wanted to clarify to ashley, as I think he may have only checked the preview and not gone back to the editor.

I've spent a few hours clearing out my computer & defragged my hard drive, I've also moves construct 2 over to my 32gb ssd, which I recommend to everyone, everything feels much sharper to use :)

There is still some noticeable slowdown after I've closed down the preview, but it is only happening with this Capx, which I'm pretty much finished with anyways. @imothep85 , are you only having the problem with one capx, or all new projects?
