Ableton Live 9.2 Lags while scolling, opening tabs, etc.

Hi I've got a MacBook Pro 2,6 GHz Intel Core i5, Yosemite 10.10.2 with 8 Go 1600 MHz DDR3 and am using 32 bitrate Ableton Live 9.2. 

I've been using Live on this laptop for the past four or five months and it recently started to lag terribly, making anything and clearly everything I do on the app very slow and annoying (e.g. scrolling through the session/arrangement views; opening tabs and tracks; moving stuff around...)

I cleaned my laptop this morning leaving it 190 Go on the disk, by moving all my User Library, Packs and Plugins to an external hard drive.

CPU is fine and every other app on my laptop works fine.

Could anyone help?

Thanks a lot,

Nelson

    ok, think i might've have fixed it! For me, I had a "zoom display" preference of 120% (as I'm working on a big external monitor). Reducing back to 100% seems to have fixed it.

    I'm seeing this also. I initially thought it was a bloated project I was working previously on but today I started fresh. I only have one ten minute audio file with EQ, filter and limiter and the UI responsiveness is terrible. e.g scrolling through arrangement view, setting cue points, zoom around loops etc. There's a serious lag between moving my mouse and the response.

    Any suggestions? This is killing the editing project I'm working on today!

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm on Live 9.2, MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2012), OS X 10.10.3 (14D136)

    I have this problem. It seems to have occurred in tandem with 9.2. What's the point of having a zoom display feature if it doesn't really work?

    Agreed that it only seems to be an issue when display zoom is not 100%.

    If I set my zoom to 100%, 150%, or 200%, the lag disappears. I wonder what is special about these zoom levels. Maybe there's more zoom levels that work properly too???
