Paste from history is kinda laggy

Hey,

the last two days I had to perform a really boring task. Lucky the "Copy and paste from history" feature made it a lot faster. But I noticed that the "Paste from history" dialog is very laggy. When you press Ctrl+Shif+V the dialog popup immediatly - but if you hit the up or down key several times it gets laggy and does not update itself in time. Thats kinda annoying because often you hit up or down one to often because of that.

This is actually the first time I really use that feature so I don't know if this lag is knew or or has been there for a while.
A quick search showed nothing in youtrack or this forum. So am I the only one who has this lag?

I'm using Idea 12.1.4 under Ubuntu 13.04 and JDK 1.7.0u21

PS: I increased the number of elements in the history from 5 to 10 - but I had the lag also when it was just 5.
EDIT: And I use the old default Skin - not the new Dracula Skin. Not sure if that makes a difference.

Regards,
Stefan

Hi Stefan,

The behavior you described is not normal and I don't observe it at local environment.

Please record a cpu snapshot for a situation when everything is laggy when you press up/down and provide it for further analysis.

Murphys law strikes again: of course it works perfectely when I tried to make the the snapshot and demontrate the issue. ;-)

Well, I still have some stupid copy and paste work to do. So when it becomes laggy again I will do the snapshot and upload it.

Thanks for the quick response.

Alright, I can reproduce the lag and it seems it has something to do with the content of the history. If I only have a single word for each history entry it works perfectly. If I have a entry with multiple lines it starts to lag. I attached two screenshot to illustrade what I mean.

In the seconds image the content of the first entry is:

---
} catch (InsufficientRightsException ex) {
            return getInsufficientRightsView();
        }
---

Each time the cursor comes to that item it lags.

I will try to create and upload the CPU snapshot anyways.

EDIT: I uploaded the CPU snapshot. The file is "IU-129.713_skerkewitz_19.06.2013_14.52.32.zip". I hope it is usefull, it's the first time I done it. But I hope you are able to recreate the behavior if you copy multiple lines into the history yourself now - should make it easier to find the issue.

Thanks, Stefan, the problem is clear now - it occurs when paste entries are too wide for the current 'paste from history' dialog.

I've created corresponding ticket for that - IDEA-109246
