Troubleshooting

CPU usage is high

In the appearance settings, you can try disabling the blur effect and should reduce the CPU usage.

Everything looks janky and is overlaying on top of each other

In rare cases, this can be caused by the navigation function not being activated in time during the startup of the software. Simply select a tab in the sidebar or reload/restart the app and the issue should be fixed. The code behind this is being improved in FalixNodes Desktop v4 to prevent this from happening.
