You need to provide more information.
- Which version of Xmind are you using? The newest, Xmind 8 update 5?
- How much memory you have on your Mac?
- Where you encounter the lag? What are you doing? How big is your map?

Search this forum for memory issues that have plagued a couple of recent versions. One reason for lag might be big editing history, search also this forum how to purge it.

I have the same issue here.
Xmind types really slow in latest pro-version. (only 2 weeks ago acquired)
On my win-laptop it works perfect and quick.

The mindmaps are not that big.

Its unusable on my Macbook Pro with latest High Sierra 10.13.1

Version: XMind 8 Update 4 (R3.7.4.201709040350)

In a map it takes almost a full second between each keystroke! Its completely unusable.

This is a common error: I eventually had to purchase SimpleMind so that I could get a functional mind mapping app. However, there is a beta of a new version for download here:

It works well, and offers promise for the future, but I hope it will be a free upgrade for this of us who paid for Mind 8 but can't use it.
