Editing slows down. Why?

Post by ajperks » Sun Oct 21, 2018 10:21 am

I have the 9.1 win 10 for program development on the main screen and 9.0 for testing and cannibalising working scripts for use in the development.
I notice the 9.1 quickly becomes very slow in the editor. Typing or deleting characters can take a full second to appear or vanish. Saving the development on 9.1 and exiting the program (9.1 only), then restarting cures it temporarily.
Is there a cure for this?
Having the ability to copy and paste chunks of working code from 9.0 is a great time saver.

This question has come up a few times before.

9.1 or 9.0.1?
To have 9.1 you would need to build yourself since the first RC isn’t out yet.

9.01, my mistake, although the sense of the question/problem remains. Thank you for pointing it out.
