Really slow to open variables
13 views (last 30 days)
Hi, Checking at the value of variables using ctrl-D has become extremely slow e.g. up to half a minute. Running of the programme is still OK but debugging has become almost impossible. I've been running the same programme (which is long and complicated) for years without this experience. The following may have something to do with it:
- Just upgraded from 2018a to 2020b
- New laptop
- Now working remotely
I'm thinking something to do with network or the path on the new implementation. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

R2020b has some updates. The most recent one was updates 3.
You should update your MATLAB then see if it mitigates the problem.

As per my understanding, It looks like caches are too big and have to be cleared.
As a workaround, You can perform the following
1) You can open command prompt and execute the following command
2) You can also try the "brute force" way, execute the command in MATLAB command prompt
And clear everything inside.
As an alternative, the clean way is to rename the opened directory, by appending a _old for instance
Then restart MATLAB.

Hope this Helps!
