Title says it all, live scrips will randomly freeze for about 30 seconds at a time. Happens once every 10 minutes or so. Eventually it unfreezes, but it's so bad that I avoid live script altogether. Happens on all 3 of my different workstations.

Hi Everett,
This is a known issue that has been fixed in R2019b. Please see "stability" in this release note:

Hi Paul,
can you please answer few questions so we can understand your issue better?:
  • when it "freezes" what actually is frozen? is it just the Live Editor that is frozen? can you use command window? for example, can you run x=1 on the command window which would run?
  • is the "frozen" state *only* happens when you run the script? please describe what else gets you to frozen state. For example, does it freeze when you are just typing code? adding rich text? etc.
  • have you noticed that using any shortcut keys will get you in the frozen state? as oppose to using the toolstrip buttons on the UI?
Thanks again for your time.
