Personal Historian 3 (MacOS High Sierra) goes crazy sending and receiving packets. It has caused our ISP to threaten to up our plan because of the upload and download bandwidth. When I start the program, here's what the activity monitor shows (https://drive.google...iew?usp=sharing


Even if I unplug/turn off Internet access, I still get the same packet blowup. 


If I create a new .phist file, things look fine, but as soon as I add 1 story, the sent and received packets blow up.

Personal Historian should only access the internet when the program first opens, checking for updates, or when importing from Facebook. If you're doing neither than it won't access the internet and send any packets. What I wonder is where your PH database file is stored on the computer that your editing. Is it inside of any folder being synced to cloud storage like Dropbox, GoogleDrive or OneDrive?
