[NTO] Re: Problem: 30 seconds to open txt file
- View Source[ some networked text file take 30 seconds to open in Notetab. ]
Wild shot in the dark: Win XP have indexing service for files turned
on by default (I think). I wonder if Win XP trys to index such file
(perhaps somehow XP not knows that it's a networked file).
Is your delay occur when use the Notetab file open dialog?
Instead of that method, have you tried using the Win XP file explorer
to drag and drop the file into Notetab to see if this makes any
(speed) difference? (not as a solution but just for troubleshooting
- View SourceHi Dave,
Unfortunately NTP behaves the same with or without:
* other programs operating,
* libraries opened or installed,
* antivirus on or off,
* beta 5 same problem,
* clicking on a txt file or opening it with in NTP.
It doesn't happen with any other file type, only txt and html opened
with NTP, and they are no larger than 20 KB.
* I'm using Win XP Home sp2,
* on a 1 year old computer,
* with RAM to spare,
* with a LAN that serves everything else up including my music
without a hitch,
* all virus and spyware free.
So it would appear to be specific to NTP and not my computer.
Possibly the fact that I have to resort to using the rrNotepad.clb to
force the replacing of Notepad with NoteTab may have something to do
with it? But, even when I turn this off it still takes the same time
to open a file.
I love NTP, but this behavior is a real show stopper. My work demands
that I am able to get into files in a timely manner.
Any ideas besides OS transplant are welcome. I really don't want to
leave NTP, but I'm getting anxious as a mega project is looming, and
need some text editing program as simple and easy to work with as
NTP. All suggestions will be welcomed with open arms.
