BUG: Hang when network-based documents open



  • This is now to the point of wasting probably a full hour or more by the end of the day combined from the 30+ second unresponsive hangs anytime NPP has network docs open which apparently because of it’s constant need to check if the document is “still there” when regaining focus.

    How it should behave is how other apps do - a background non-blocking refresh. No need to change the checks, prompts, or anything else - simply make these calls Asynchronous instead of Synchronous.

    Is there a better place to post this?



  • This was discussed many times. 2 examples are here and there.

    Background, asynchronous and non-blocking are not simple for a legacy single threaded GUI application that was not designed for them.
    Just turn the detection off.
