Fix a BBEdit slow-down when editing multiple files
Authored by: philipu on Sep 02, '05 10:49:59AM

i've definitely noticed the slowdown described above on my 1.67 powerbook g4 with 1.5gb ram and tens of gigs of free space on the drive.

hopefully flushing the undo history will do the trick. my firm believe that bbedit doesn't suck was beginning to weaken. it gets seriously slow. i usually notice it when i'm trying to select multiple lines of text.

seriously though, a modern text editor should not have problems like this. Nedit is blazingly fast under similar conditions, but i tend not to use it because it doesn't fit in my work flow the same way bbedit does.
