I often have text files with 100k+ lines. While "Search and replace" pspad scrolls through the file and shows what happens. It works find but notepad++ does the job much faster. The same thing with "insert text into lines"

I recently see another long time running thing. I search for a string and want to generate a list of the finds. This takes minutes for a 1,600,000 lines file. Isnt this done in memory? Why do the lines scroll through the window and the graphics card needs to show what happens? My PC isnt a weak on. 128GB RAM, 8core, 3.7GHz+, Nvidia P5000

Thank you for info. You are right, redraw slow down whole process. I disabled redraw for List and Copy. It should be much faster now.

Hello Jan, I noticed unnecessary redraws while opening a bunch of files at once and while closing the files too. It seams as if every file coming to the top is redrawn.
I hope you can fix the chines letter thing.

Actually 5.0.4 (539) but I noticed this in all newer versions up to 731. Just drop a bunch of text files in the pspad window and You will see.
