Hello,

I have a pretty big notes app (I take all of my notes for work and personal, probably a total of 1000 notes w/ attached images and long text) and it's lagging really hard on both my Macbook Pro 2017, and iMac 5K 2015, both pretty strong machines. It's freezing, taking up to a minute to complete a search, and crashing sometimes.

Is there any solutions outside of deleting notes?

Best,

I have about 1300 notes and about 10% have attachments. It runs fine on my 2012 iMac i5. Have you tried switching iCloud sync off and switching on again?

Do you have enough space on your iCloud account? I wonder if it is trying to juggle all of the notes with the amount of storage you have.
Yes - half of the space available.

Trying this and will report back if it works.

EDIT: IT WORKED! Thank you Lexvo.
