Re: EmEditor 16.5.0.
Pressing left and right arrow keys leads to fast navigation across text, but pressing up and down arrow keys leads to slow navigation: a significant delay occurs before the cursor moves to the next line.

If I understand correctly, this is just because EmEditor needs to scroll UP and DOWN and redraw some part of text everytime it scrolls. It also depends on your computer speed.
To work around, you might want to try clearing the “Use Double Buffering” check box in the View page of the Customize dialog box, although this might increase some refreshing / flashing of the screen.

1. I have a fast computer.
Computer: TOSHIBA PORTEGE R930
Operating system: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Version 6.1.7601
Service pack: 1.0
Total physical memory (MB): 16262
Available physical memory (MB): 7766
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3320M CPU @ 2.60GHz 64-bit
Processor type: Intel64 Family 6 Model 58 Stepping 9

2. This problem did not previously occur.
3. The problem is unaffected by “Use Double Buffering”.
4. This is a problem, serious enough to switch to a faster editor. Please rectify!

Can you make sure “Smooth Scroll” is NOT set in the Scroll page of configuration properties?
Which version of EmEditor did NOT have this problem?
Does the problem appear only with a certain file, or very large files?
If you still see the issue, I am not sure if I understand exactly what the issue is.
Can you send me a sample file (after zipped) at tech @ emurasoft.com as well as REG files (or INI files if you use EmEditor as portable version)? If you decide to send me REG files, you can export them at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\EmSoft in the RegEdit.exe, and zip before you attach the reg file.
Also, screenshots or screencast would help too.

Smooth scroll is not set.
I believe that the previous versions of EmEditor did not have this problem.
The problem appears with all files. Pressing the UP or DOWN arrow key simply leads to slow vertical movement of the cursor.
I have sent you the files via e-mail.
