I'm using the FB 3 standalone beta 3. I'm in the process of
converting a rather large ActiveX control written in Delphi to
Flex. I've written my self a converter that does some basic syntax
conversion of the delphi source code and then I manually do the
rest. Now I've been doing this since before the FB 3 came out. All
of a sudden with beta 3 I'm noticing huge delays when moving the
cursor around an .as file that has lots of syntax errors. It's
awful. Basically, you do right->right->right>wait 5
seconds->right->right->right-wait 5 more seconds. It's
really slowing me down and only started after beta 3.
I tried to turn off various syntax highlighting stuff, but it
doesn't seem to help.
BTW, does anyone like the new "highlight every occurance of
the current symbol" feature. I thought maybe that was what was
slowing it down so I turned it off, but who knows, maybe it still
does it behind the scenes because it didn't help.
Also, when it's doing all this waiting, my CPU pegs at 50%. I
have hyperthreading so that a full virtual CPU.
If anyone has any ideas on a workaround I would love to hear
You could use the highlighter icon on the toolbar to turn the
"Mark Occurrences" off. Also, this feature will be turned off by
default in later builds. We have done some performance work for
specific cases, but if you have a case that is slow, please log a
bug in our public bug system
we can track it down or verify whether we've fixed it already.
