(I’m really hesitant to make this topic – this is my third attempt in as many days – because it’s so hard to replicate or measure the following. I make this topic primarily to get help, not to blame, because the behaviour described below is annoying to me.)
Steps to reproduce
When I type in a note, I every now and then experience lag (every 20 seconds or so). This is a noticeable lag (where I pressed the 2nd or 3rd key and the first hasn’t shown yet). I guess it to be one or two seconds.
On Obsidian 0.9.22, the CPU never goes below 10% as long as I type. It frequently spikes to 40% when I’m typing in a note (without me doing something ‘special’ like searching, creating a note, or even switching to a different note). Those spikes seem to coincidence with the lag I experience.
- Spell check disabled.
- No Markdown preview panel open for the same file I work on.
- No editor panel open for the same file I work on.
- No MathJax or tables in my notes.
- No block references or code (iframe) in my notes.
I could not connect this behaviour to specific notes.
I think this behaviour started around 0.9.18 or 0.9.19. I’m not entirely sure due to the frequent releases during that time.
I would expect a relatively smooth typing experience.
A noticeable input lag every now and then. This latter seems to coincidence with the CPU spikes.
