Can you repeat the problem? If so, what are the steps?

Doing anything that requires loading.

I’ve used shotcut for a while and this problem started today I’ll just click something and shotcut will stop responding and take much longer than normal to load things.

I have no idea what I did maybe it just needed time but my problem is gone it lasted for about 2 hours.

Sometimes Shotcut runs a background task - for example generating audio waveforms - that may bog down the computer. Some users find that they have lower performance while the background tasks are running. Or perhaps another application was consuming resources.
