Hope for improved Battery life with Big Sur

Hey guys,

I love Scrivener (!) but my MacBook gets really hot and loud when using it. Batter life is drained so fast which is annoying as I like working in coffee shops. Is there a chance that with the switch to ARM Macs Scrivener is going to become more efficient?

If you launch Activity Monitor from your Utilities folder in Applications you can get info on what is using all the juice. Leave it running for a while in the background. Scrivener isn’t normally a very heavy resource user, but if your project is stored in Dropbox or another cloud system then the way that Scrivener keeps saving whenever you pause as you write might be causing some network traffic.
