Downgrading Visual Studio For Mac Rating: 5,8/10 7949 reviews

Jan 27, 2020  I recently upgraded to Visual Studio for Mac 2019 via Unity Hub. At least to me, it seems like there is a significant amount of performance regressions when editing codes; the editor becomes unresponsive for 2 to 3 seconds every time I hit cmd+s to save files, and intellisense popup feels a lot more sluggish compared to the way it used to be with VS 2017.


To start developing native, cross-platform .NET apps on macOS, install Visual Studio 2019 for Mac following the steps below.


  • A Mac with macOS High Sierra 10.12 or above.
