Big note file loading error

I have a plain txt note file, full size is 517 MB (542,342,193 byte). The software interface gets stuck when you open it. When it’s not open, it’s simply stored in the notes directory, and some of the functions can be quite unusual.

Custom theme and snippets: for cosmetic issues, please first try updating your theme and disabling your snippets. If still not fixed, please try to make the issue happen in the Sandbox Vault or disable community theme and snippets.
Community plugins: for bugs, please first try updating all your plugins to latest. If still not fixed, please try to make the issue happen in the Sandbox Vault or disable community plugins.

Can you try copying the note into the Sandbox vault, or a fresh test vault? Or at least test with default theme and no community plugins.

Try to isolate whether it is the note, or something in your vault, like a plugin.

That is a pretty huge note though. Maybe it is just struggling to load it. It might depend on your computer’s memory too. And you might ultimately have to consider splitting this note into multiple separate chunks. (I’m not speaking for the devs. Maybe there is a bug or a solution here.)

we are not going to support file of that size and perhaps we should block you from opening in them.
