when I want to find in files in a large file, the cancel button does not work or holds for a long time when I press it
And this program doesn’t do it all the time, it does it every now and then
Thanks.January 27, 2023 at 1:14 pm #29155
The more frequently EmEditor checks the user input, the slower EmEditor becomes.
To reproduce the issue, how big is a typical file? How many lines in the file, and how many files in a folder?
What is the search string and options (regex or not)?
How many seconds or minutes do you have to wait?
Do you search a local hard drive, SSD, or network drive?
Please also make sure that your hard drive is healthy by using “chkdsk” command.January 27, 2023 at 1:44 pm #29156John SnowParticipant
The file is very large, estimated at 50 million lines, but it does this error occasionally, so sometimes I can cancel immediately when searching at 50 million, sometimes the cancel button disappears and I wait for an estimated 20 secondsJanuary 28, 2023 at 9:40 am #29158
I think 20 seconds is within the range of acceptable cancelling time without sacrificing the speed. If you need faster cancellation, please answer all my other questions. Thank you.May 9, 2023 at 9:20 am #29222
v22.3.907 addressed this issue. It also improved the speed of Find in Files while improving the response time when you cancel.
