first to say I love this project as I am "native"java coder.
Second, sadly I have problems trying to use RSyntaxTextArea. The highlighting can get very, very slow with large files + highlighting words which are abundant.
I tried this operation in other text editors (Sublime3, PsPad) and couldn't reproduce similar results.
To be through, I do understand difference between native code/interpreted code. But having 400megs to highlight some word in a 1MB file seems quite a lot.
Also after going to no highlight, the memory consumption stays.
Some hints on what I may have been doing wrong?
