Slow with imported DayOne (long) note

edited October 2018 in The Archive

I imported a very large DayOne note at 300 KB which was 35,000 words. (It was actually many notes, but DayOne is lame and exports to plain text as one mega txt file.) Once it went into The Archive, I experienced significant slowdown while trying to type within that note. This brings up a few questions:

  • Should it just be expected that really long notes cause slowdown?
  • Maybe the slowdown was caused by the meta-data DayOne provides for each entry? It uses the " ``` " markdown and looks like the below:
Date:   June 13, 2014 at 1:01:14 PM PDT
Weather:    52°F Cloudy
Location:   50.7545° N, 83.9838° W
  • Does too much markdown cause slow down?
  • Does the " ``` " markdown specifically cause slow down?

I'm interested to hear what everyone has to say, thanks!
