I have downloaded an eval copy of the EmEditor to compare against other editors (I am looking for a good fast replacement for notepad). Whilst I can see great potential in the program, I am finding it a bit slow when compared to other products that I have tried such as textpad, notepad++, etc. for things like paging through large text files, search and replace etc. For example textpad is 2 x to 3 x faster at search and replace and much faster at paging.
My question is do you guys aim to address this in the near future?
First, a few simple questions: What is the typical size of text file you are trying to page or search/replace? Have you changed any settings on the Advanced tab of the Customize dialog box (on the Tools menu)? We certainly want to optimize the speed in all cases.
