Heavy memory usage: any suggestions how to avoid it?

Hi folks,


it's been a while, I think with the two last updates, that Bridge has become a little bit of a vampire on memory usage. It literally consume all 16Gb RAM in a matter of few minutes.


I suppose there must be a way to intervene on this, but I am really not sure what I can do except limiting the apps working on the background.


More often than not, though, I need PS open at the same time, but while PS does not attempt to the RAM (if I have it open and let's say I have Acrobat, Safari, Amazon Music and Pages running, no major issues happen to the memory usage), the combination Bridge and whatever else becomes unbearable for my Mac


Processor: 2.7 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5

Memory:16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

Graphic: Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB

MacOs Catalina 10.15.7

aer the specifics


Any advices on this? Are there things in the preferences that I can touch to make Bridge smoother and less Memory needy?


Thanks in advance!
