Is it possible to force idea to treat the editor content as an raw text?

Sometimes when i work with a huge markup sql/xml/cvs files idea trying to parse it and works slowly. On other hand i do not want to treat all sql files as a plain text. So, it will be convinient to me to open a huge file in a resource cheap manner. Is it possible? This is because i need to switch to a notepad++ to edit sql. it provides basic highlightning and runs very fast even on a huge files.
P.S. Also, consider a user who ocassinously click a huge file in idea - it could freeze it for a minutes and even crash it.  If idea can estimate file complexity and open it in a resource safe mode, it will be nice feature.

You can suppress all inspections for a class via a quick fix action. (see http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/webhelp/suppressing-inspections.html) You could also create a basic inspection profile, and then switch back and forth between it an a more robust one. (This of course would limit inspections for all files). In both cases, IDEA would still provide syntax highlighting and linking. I do not believe there is a way to tell IDEA to simply treat a file as raw text. A hack would be to temporarily rename the file to a .txt extension so IDEA treats it as raw text.

This is use case is already handled. IDEA will not parse files over a specified size. The size is set via the idea.max.intellisense.filesize property in the idea.properties file. It's default value is 2500KB.

Hi Mark, thanks for your brilliant answer. idea.max.intellisense.filesize works fine for me. sql files making idea hangs is about ~2mb, thus before treshold. With treshold lower - everything runs
