Search & Replace - long pause then rebuild tag file
« on: September 28, 2010, 09:08:30 pm »
This is something I've never seen before.  But then I've not been using this workspace with 4 large projects in it for long.

I run a simple search & replace.  After pressing 'y' to replace the last item, the UI freezes - for no more than 15-30 seconds.  Shortly after that, the progress dialog appears and tagging begins.  The tagging takes about 5-10 seconds.

I have the default options which allow background tagging and updating tags whenever possible.  It's just odd that this always fires immediately after the last replace.

Could you run the profiler on this and send us the results? That will help us figure out what's going on.

Here's what to do:
1) Open SlickEdit and get ready to do the kind of search and replace that triggers this behavior.
2) Run the following command from the SlickEdit command line: profile on.
3) Do the search and replace and wait for the tagging to finish.
4) Run the following command: profile save "<filename>", where <filename> is the name of a file to save it to, like "profile.txt".

Then post the results here so we can see what's going on.  Thanks!
