Reduce disk access

Reduce disk access

Postby jason on Wed Feb 03, 2010 5:30 am

I edit a lot of files over webdav via a slow vpn. This means that I have very high latency to access files.

I can live with this for opening & saving files, however I find that when I tab back and forth between windows, I find that Sublime Text locks up completely, sometimes for 2 or 3 seconds, while it's waiting for disk access.

I'm not sure if it's checking for file updates or something, but it would be nice if this could be done in the background in a way that doesn't lock my text editor process - it's very jarring when I'm switching back and forth quickly.

This is indeed Sublime Text checking to see if the file has changed. It's on the todo list to make this asynchronous, but in the mean time you can disable the checking altogether (provided you're using a beta version anyway) by adding the line:

Code: Select all
ignoreChanged true

to Preferences/User File Preferences
