Description DeepFlight5 2017-07-04 07:46:34 UTC
When double clicking the "copy style tool" (the paint brush icon) one can add styles to different texts in one step. So far so good. But when this tool is selected the computer CPU goes up to 100 %. I selected this tool, did some work, did not deselect it, because I wanted to continue the style changes, and went for a short brake. When I came back the fans were running loudly and the CPU was at 100 %. The moment I deselected the tool, the CPU went down to 5 %.
