21331RE: [NTB] Performance issues with large files
- Aug 17, 2009Try copying the document to the clipboard, and paste it into a new document, save the new document, and see if it also
has this problem. This often clears unnoticed characters that might be causing a problem.
Your RAM memory is pretty small, which could easily lead to the computer using its swap file. Swap files can become
fragmented, just like hard drives. Try deleting your swap file, reboot, then create a new one, using at least the
recommended size. Set the minimum size and the maximum size the same - large. That way, Windows isn't busy resizing the
swap file. Also, try placing your swap file on a drive that is different than your work drive, so it doesn't have to
reseek to swap. Upgrading the RAM would be highly recommended, 1G minimum, 2G better (assuming XP).
If you're using Vista, there can be other issues.

reopened it, opened a 700kb file I haven't been editing in a long time,
jumped to the end of the file and... there it is, slow again. As I
mentioned, it seems to have something to do with updating the screen,
and it has to be far from the beginning of the file.
