I am using Julia 1.1.0 on ubuntu 18.04 LTS. I have notices that the by checking the checkbox " Fallback Renderer", the response of julia terminal get improved. However, If I close and reopen Atom, the response rate of julia terminal again slows down. The checkbox remains selected in this case.
if I need to repeat the process i.e. uncheck and recheck the " Fallback Renderer" check box, the response rate improves.
