    My 2018 Macbook pro currently running Mojave v 10.14.5. After the last update, I have experienced immense computer freezing and/or lag when working on PDFs (and only when working on PDFs). Actions that cause the problem include: downloading PDF (regardless of size), moving PDF from one folder to another, saving a PDF after editing in preview. My default PDF editor/viewer is preview. I'm unsure if the latest update caused the issue or the timing is merely coincidental.


    I hope someone can help. Thank you.

    What PDF application are you using? I'm not having any problems with Preview or PDF Expert on my 2018 15" on 10.14.5

    I use preview as my default editor/viewer. If the PDF requires more extensive editing, I use PDF Element 6 pro. However, the issue does not arise during PDF editing.
