The Archive (Preview): testing loading time, responsiveness when typing & external editors open
I stumbled upon a solution to prevent file saving conflicts with some external editors that had the same file open. It boils down to letting macOS know before anything is done to a file so that other apps are prevented from simultaneous access.
On my machine, this increased the loading time from 2 to 28 seconds, though, as all my notes are read from disk
Otherwise, typing and auto-saving seems unchanged, except when an external editor is open that seems to be especially greedy with regards to file access and interferes. (e.g. iA Writer) When auto-saving takes place every couple heartbeats, I do notice a slight sub-second delay between 2 characters while I type. You know, the classic "hit keys on the keyboard but they appear with a delay" thing.
Could y'all give it a spin, especially if you're on MacBook Airs or older Macs? Might also be worth noting if you have FileVault enabled or not (System Prefs > Security & Privacy)
