    Hello! Fairly new to GameMaker and the GameMaker community, hoping this is the best place to reach out (and apologies if a common solution is already posted somewhere, I did give a look first.)

    The program is freezing up on me quite often, I'd say on average every 20 minutes. It typically seems to occur when I command+tab to a different window/program, or when I run my game, but has happened in the middle of typing out code. What happens is the entire program becomes unresponsive. Clicking anywhere has no response. I can still minimize/maximize the window, or hide/pull up the GM2 window, but it is still unresponsive. I'm required to force quit the program and re-open. I notice that when I open the force quit panel, it doesn't state that the program is unresponsive, which is unusual when a program becomes unresponsive.

    Here's what I'm running:
    IDE Version: 2.2.5.481
    Current Runtime: 2.2.5.378

    macOS Catalina 10.15.2
    MacBook Air (13-inch, 2017)
    1.8 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5
    8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
    Intel HD Graphics 6000 1536 MB

    I believe everything is up to date. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Odd. I’m running similar hardware (i7) and don’t remember it ever freezing.
