Often, IntelliJ is slow when typing, and sometimes, IntelliJ hangs when doing something simple.
Today IntelliJ hung by pasting the name of a class after the word "extends" in a java file.
Very often it takes more than 5 seconds to see letters that I typed, appearing on screen.
Are there any plans to ever fix this? I can't really give many details of what I'm doing, I mean, it just happens often in various situations, I've used IntelliJ on several completely different projects on different computers in the meantime. I'm working on a large codebase, but that's what IntelliJ is for, right?
I'm probably oversimplifying things here, but whatever IntelliJ is doing in the background, shouldn't there at least be a thread giving high priority to responding immediatly to the text the user is typing and drawing it on screen? And shouldn't things that can hang at least not hang the main GUI and typing thread?
I can imagine constantly parsing all the source code everything takes a long time, and can wait for information about jumping to class definitions etc... to be updated in the background. But I see no reason why editing the text of the single file now in view, as well as saving it to disk (another notiously slow operation) should not go fast.
