Processing paused when changing Desktop
On my machine (MacBook Pro 2016, 16GB RAM, macOS Catalina) I have the weird behavior that APP pauses the processing when I switch the active desktop. Is that accidentally or is that a wanted behaviour? It´s a bit a pitty that I can´t switch the desktop while APP is running a calibration, or integration.
It is not wanted, but does happen it seems. Same thing when your Mac goes to sleep or activates the screensaver. We have no good idea why, but hopefully when we switch from Java 8 to 11, things like this will be solved.
