With a large package opened in an Editor and with the Navigator also opened (which has enough items in it so that it has a scroll bar to view them all). Whenever something is typed in the Editor, the Navigator looks like it rebuilds the Navigator list, which causes a delay in the Editor. The scroll bar seems to get large, taking up the whole slide bar, and then shrinks down, like more items are being added to the list. This causes a pause while typing in the Editor, which is an annoyance and breaks up user momentum.
This is a result of the Editor parsing each time something is typed, which in turn is due to the many features of the Editor.
This is not really a defect and there is not an option that can speed this process up.
Note: Closing the Navigator will not help. The parsing occurs even when the Navigator is closed.
Close the Navigator completely.
Unpin the Navigator so that it auto hides when focus is lost.
