OK, so I have a feeling what may be causing this, but first let me explain the symptoms:
When typing/editing text inside KM, from typing/editing a macro name to editing text inside a macro, for example a simple 'display text' macro, the responsiveness is HORRIBLE and error-prone. Letters are missed, delays are really bad.
It was not always like this though, and please bear in mind I am using this on an M2 Macbook Air with 24gb RAM. It's not short of resources. I get similar results on an M1 iMac.
What I think might be happening: I have a lot of typed string macros (for work I reference a lot of W3C documents that I have shortcuts for - around 900). I was wondering whether having so many of these was causing it issues? I have temporarily disabled them, but still having responsiveness issues.
Is there any way that I can diagnose what is causing this issue? Any likely culprits I should hunt down?
Make sure you don’t have any other Editor windows open at the time... especially if the second Editor window is open to the same macro you’re currently modifying. Anytime I run into that same sluggishness you’re describing, it’s because I opened another editor window and forgot about it, and it’s almost always open to the same macro which means KM has to update two windows in real-time.
