Editting MXML files

So I've been using IDEA for quite some time now, a year I think. The thing that bugs me the most is the speed concerning editting mxml files.
When you have like 200+ lines of code in mxml, it is totally unusable. Not even to mention when you have 500+ !

For instance, just a few minutes ago, I wanted to wrap some big (285 files to be exact) block of code in VGroup. What I did was, selected the lot, and wanted to use Surround with tag live template. After I selected this, the whole thing froze for about 30 seconds.

Now, maybe my PC is not the high end, I mean 1 SSD drive, 4 GB of RAM and 3,00 AMD X4 is not the most expensive machine money could buy today, but still?

Don't get me wrong here - I love, no - I adore IDEA for how it supports my way of thinking and how you don't have to melt your keyboard to write simple `for` statement, but there are still ways to improove this IDE.
Keep up the good work!

Hi Konrad,

Please capture CPU snapshot for the problem use-case, create dedicated ticket at the tracker and attach the snapshot to it.

Assigned to the responsible developer.

Can I ask you to try the same use-case under IJ 10.5 EAP build?

well, I've been using 10.5 for an hour or so now, and I must say - the performance isn't any better than in 10.0.3 :\
