    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,

    Are they local or iCloud synced? You could try the other. Also, try rebuilding your Spotlight database.

    Rebuilding the Database didn't seem to help.

    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.

    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?

    Yes - half of the space available.
    Trying this and will report back if it works.

    EDIT: IT WORKED! Thank you Lexvo.
