Hello,

I run a MAC OS X-based computer laboratory. My machines are running ELAN 4.8.1 in a MAC OS X High Sierra environment, and this configuration is stable. I am testing MAC OS X Mohave on one machine and installed ELAN 5.7, and the two don’t seem compatible. ELAN Freezes when Transcription mode is being used. Just prior to freezing, sound playback gets stuck “on” and we can no longer type in the annotation fields. No selections can be made to checkboxes, no scrolling is possible, selection of text, or even pause the recording (with mouse or tab key). I cannot open files that had been in progress on the High sierra/ELAN 4.8.1 machines (although these files still open and may be edited with the stable setup). Please advise! Thank you.

Does this concern the AVFX version of ELAN 5.7?
And are there any clear error messages in the log after switching to the Transcription mode (in View->View Log… or otherwise in the log file in the ELAN preferences/data folder)?

Hello, Yes, we are running ELAN 5.7 AVFX.

Here’s what my lab assistant says: What I found was that for the first several lines of annotation, everything behaved as expected (meaning, I was able to start/stop sound with TAB and type/navigate while sound was playing) but after the five or so minutes I got the issue again, which isn’t an error message but just prohibitive lag. I’m including log files text below for you, and I really don’t see anything in it that suggests a crash/error – it just notes when I’ve saved the file several times. 

The logs don’t really say anything that suggests a crash/error PER SE, but what I notice is that the lag seems to only start after I’ve either manually saved my work or when ELAN has auto-saved for me. In the first file (the 10:19AM start) I manually saved a few times out of habit, and I think the lag didn’t start until after either the first autosave or manual save but I wasn’t sure if that’s what was the issue. I closed the thing, opened the same eaf file again (speaker90), and this time did NOT manually save at all while transcribing. I noticed that again the first few minutes were fine before the prohibitive lag started kicking in. My theory is that it is happening after a file autosaves, but I don’t know how to turn autosaving off so I can’t test that directly. 

I did try closing and opening the file for a third time, and this time worked with Activity Monitoring turned on. The next log is that activity log, and in this instance it wasn’t until several minutes that I encountered the lag – the last annotation I could change while sound was playing was cell 29, which the activity log recorded as: 
1562865843053 2019/07/11 10:24:03.053 24:03.053 03.053 053 annotation_value_changed
After that, the lag didn’t let me change anything when sound was playing, so I saved and closed the file. Based on this activity log, the lag doesn’t seem to start RIGHT after I save the file

Ok, that’s still mysterious then.
You can turn off automatic backup via File->Automatic Backup->Never
Although I wouldn’t expect that to make a difference, it is worth trying whether it has any effect at all.

In ELAN 5.6-FX some changes were made to fix some problems with Loop Mode and Automatic Playback in Transcription mode. I’m wondering whether this is related somehow. I’ll try to do some more testing next week.
