Input slowdown as notes get larger
I know the standard response to "larger" notes is "Split them up", but there are times where I'm just trying to write stuff out without trying to think about how to split things up, or I don't know where the seams are yet, etc. When this happens I notice a slowdown when typing that is not present in smaller notes. (relatedly there is also slowdown when loading/scrolling notes that are longer than I might normally write, but are something like copying an article into The Archive to process later. If they get long enough, there is a visible "screen refresh" as smaller chunks of the note part of the UI load in)
Is there any ongoing work to improve general performance of the note editor part of the UI? I can certainly use an external editor, but I generally prefer to keep in the same application when trying to work on something.
Also out of curiosity: what's causing the slowdown? (I find it particularly interesting that this area is slow when you've talked about how rigorously you test on huge Zettelkastens to make sure The Archive performs well even on 45k large notes) If you don't have proprietary stuff you can't talk about in the editor, I'd be happy to hear about the nitty gritty since I'm a programmer. I've even worked a bit on making my own markdown editor inspired by the Zettelkasten method and figured out ways to handle large notes, so I'm happy to bounce ideas off you if that would be helpful.
