Joplin has a great markdown parsing / rendering feaeture. It higlights text in the editor and shows a rendered markdown in the preview window, but it comes at a cost.
I have a text document which is 20kb in size.
Each time I edit / cut / paste a big chunk of that document (20+ lines) it freezes for half a minute.
I suspect that it’s because of Markdown parsing / rendering.
After the edit, I can scroll for ~0.1 seconds and there is no markdown highligt on the text.
But after the said ~0.1 seconds, Joplin freezes for half a minute and then shows the text highlights.
Also other note taking apps (Standard Notes, CherryTree) and text editors (Notepad++, Kate) have no trouble handling that document.
I suggest to add a on/off switch in the Joplin settings to completely disable markdown support.
Or an individual switch to every individual note.
Can this be easily implemented?
What do you think?
