I am using Sketchup 2021, latest Version SketchUpPro-2021-1-279-89-de on a Win10 HP Envy NB with 8GB of RAM adn a CPU Intel Core i7 5500U @ 2.4GHz.
I find, that Sketchup becomes a bit slower with every version.
Currently, when Sketchup is opened and an empty model (with Sumele only) is loaded and I do not touch the keyboard, mouse or Space mouse, Sketchup uses roughly 5% CPU all the time. ( I also removed all Plugins for this test)
What is Sketchup doing in the background when I am not doing anything?
In addition, if I load a 35MB large model, then Sketchup uses constantly 11% CPU.
When having the select tool active and I am moving the mouse, but not clicking anywhere, Sketchup uses 30% CPU.
I understand, that the mouse positioning triggers processing, but the idle CPU usage of 5-11% is not a good sign to me.
