Search very slow on typing after adding and deleing sql document



I had a few GB sql file in my code base for about 5 mins.

I searched in sublime text with this file in there and the sublime text search was very slow.

I have 100% deleted this file now, restarted the app, restart my machine and sublime text search is still painfully slow. Take a few seconds per key press. This file and all large files are 100% gone and deleted.

Any help on speeding it up would be much appricated. Is there a search cache to delete somewhere?

Can you be more specific as to what search you’re using? Does it happen in safe mode?



hi, thanks for your reply, it’s the search when I open this in the corner to be spsific:

The search is not slow in safe mode.

I think it’s worth noting that the search has never been slow before, only until I added and then removed this large file.

I’ve googled “remove sublime search cache” and similar things but I can’t find any help.

It’s made the app near unusable, really appciate any help with fixing this thanks. :slight_smile:



To be clear it’s typing into the search bar that’s laggy? Is typing anywhere else also slow?



It actually seems to be the whole UI, animations and typing in doucments too, I hadn’t just done that yet, as I was reviewing code.



Do you have the find-results tab still open? Does closing that fix the problem?
