Applescript performance under Lion Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hi all,

Anyone noticed a (dramatic) degradation in Applescript performance after upgrading to Lion?

I have a dozen or so OmniFocus workflow scripts that I use daily, and they're painfully slow since going to Lion. Some of them take a minute or more to run, they were much faster before, most of them instant.

I'm a little surprised that my searching around hasn't turned up more people that have experienced this, around here. I have seen other complaints about scripts being affected, (with no resolution).
If they are .scpt files which were originally compiled under a pre 10.7 version of the OS, it might just be worth recompiling. (Save to a text format [.applescript], and then Save As from text to compiled [.scpt] ).

Can't test this personally at the moment - I am staying well away from the unweaned 10.7 cub at the moment :-)

(but I notice that there are reports of 10.7 slowing scripts for apps like Mail and Bibdesk quite badly too).

Good luck !

Hey Rob - great suggestion, thanks. I recompiled most of my stuff earlier today - some stuff still lags (more than before) but I *think* I've noticed an improvement. I'll continue to keep an eye on it - if the difference seems decisive I'll report it back here.

Thanks again, cheers!
