Frustrating or not opening up and working on real projects and getting feedback on that is precisely what a DP is for. Particularly DP 1. We would have to invent real projects to work on and it probably still wouldn’t cut it in terms of coverage.

Anyway, the good news is thanks to your report a potentially long standing issue on the windows event queue has been fixed and I’ve refactored out something which was slowing things down in the main command that updates the text of the script editor. It’s still quite slow for long scripts on Windows when applying a completion or tabbing to the next placeholder. We will work on that as there seems to be some things that are dirtying the rect of the entire field rather than just the changed area, however, it’s obviously much less critical than regular typing. I’d also like to improve the default font for the SE and present a warning if someone chooses a font that isn’t monospace as monospace fonts make a big difference.

Cheers
