Spinning beachball every action

Since the most recent update, I get a spinning beachball for five to ten seconds every time I do anything.

It worked fine prior to the update. Nothing has changed on my Mac except that Fusion 360 update.

Version: 2.0.17457 arm64 [Native]

@barney15e The update yesterday was a small update to should not have any fixes that could negatively impact performance. Can you please restart your machine and use this article and launch the service utility to do a repair Fusion? See if this could help?

I had already tried repair and it didn't work.

After reading your suggestion, I had an OS update to install, so that generated a restart. 

It seems to be working fine. I'll see what happens after it stays open for a while.

The beachballs were caused by a spindump being spawned. If I left Fusion open but using another app, no spindumps were generated.

I can, but I opened several other designs to see if it was limited to that one. Even with that design closed, it happened with any other design I tried.
