(Archived) BUG: Typing speed gets very slow in notes with large PDFs



Hello users,

When I attache a bit heavy PDF files in a note, the typing speed gets very slow. I guess this is due to the CPU cost to preview the PDF images inline the note, and it may be due to the OS X API. But I think the rendering engine should not redraw the preview pictures which should be kept in memory, during I am typing keys.

I attached an example PDF which makes the typing speed very slow. Please put the file in a note and then type some text.

I would like to know if there is a workaround for this problem (bug ? feature?). Of course, I would appreciate it if the developer team could solve the issue.

I am using the Evernote 1.10.1 (93489) and OS X 10.6.4.

I've reproduced this behavior and filed a bug. It looks like this PDF is fairly complicated, and I imagine there is something that is redrawing the whole thing after every note change.

Hello Dave,

Thanks a lot.

I suppose you already have an idea on the issue. But I tried the same using TextEdit.app with RTF mode. The typing speed is not affected by the PDF (see the attached screen shot). Just for your information.
