    every time when i start up the xcode it takes at least one minute to load. For example when I opened my c project and xcode starts and all windows shows up but then it start to load and load and load... yesterday everything worked great.

    I already reinstalled the xcode...

    What could be wrong?

    Try not keeping so many windows open, or change the preferences to not remember open windows. It could be one large complex file that taking a long time to render.

    I don't think that's the problem, because when i just open the xcode and try to open the xcode preference panel it starts to load again...

    What version O/S are you running ? Are you sure you are using the newest XCode?

    There was a thread just recently with a very non-obvious solution. Since it's not my Mac, you can look for the thread yourself. :D

    What i meant was deleting ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Xcode.plist

    or at least renaming it.

    Maybe it is just indexing all the symbols in your program?

    One way to find out would be to go in to Code Sense in the preferences and uncheck "enable for all projects" and see if it stops the disk access.

    I deleted the com.apple.Xcode.plist, but it didn't help. I also did what aLoC suggest, but no effect :/ Damn! What could be wrong?

    could it be a ram full issue? Are you running a lot of other things at the same time without much actually memory?

    Take a look in the Console - are any log entries from Xcode showing up while it's launching?

    No, it can't be ran issue either :/

    I don't see anything special when I check the log...

    There's no problem to start the Xcode, but if I try to do something like to open the preference panel it starts load...

    xcode is slow

    Don't make excuses for xcode, and don't blame the user.

    Xcode is slow. The editor is slow, the compiler is slow, the debugger is slow.

    I completely disagree. This is only perceived performance, I know, but I've recently had to go back to Visual Studio 2010 on Windows 7. I'm finding Visual Studio 2010 to be sluggish. While XCode, for me, zips along. But I do have the latest and greatest iMac. ;)

    Please don't revive threads that are 4 years old on a whim.

    He just joined Macrumors today to post, and has only one post so far. Even better it was to comment on, and revive a 4 year old thread. I see a lot of android/windows trolls coming to Macrumors lately. They usually cause trouble for a few days then they get bored and leave, back to engadget and gizmodo I guess.

    So slow that some of its users have time to go on MacRumors and revive four year old threads.
