STM32CubeMX Performance on Mac OS X, sluggish

ST,
My team has recently started using the OS X version of CubeMX after using the Windows version for the last couple years.  Our current project uses an STM32F429NGH6, which has lots of pins.  CubeMX is very slow when configuring an MCU with so many pins.  On Windows it is slow but tolerable, however on OS X it is nearly unusable.  A simple click on a pin to set it via the drop down menu can take 5+ seconds for the dropdown menu to appear and another 5+ seconds for the click on the option to be recognized and menu dismissed.

Is there anything you guys can do to improve the performance?  I realize that's not necessary an easy thing to do, but it's probably time to focus some efforts on it.

We have now moved our embedded development entirely to the Mac and I'm sure many others studios out there are doing the same.  I'm sure your other users migrating to the Mac will appreciate any speed improvements you can make with CubeMX.

Thanks,
Craig
