Just one thing about the new "sorting lines" feature introduced in v6.5.2:
it takes a lot of time and causes high cpu usage to sort lines
(currently using Notepad++ v6.5.5 in win8.1 x64)
- open eg. a .srt file which ~10000 lines (160 KB),
- press Edit>Line Operations>Sort lines on a file,
- it takes (even with latest npp 6.5.5 with both Edit>Document Map/Function List and "word wrap" unticked) near 2 minutes to complete with cpu staying to 60% in a dual-core Intel @2GHz cpu.
- pressing Undo afterwards, takes another ~15 seconds for the text to appear
To have a reference,
I tried sorting that file in another Scintilla-based editor: Notepad2 v5.0.26-beta4
(Edit>Block>Sort Lines: Sort ascending)
and it finishes instantly.
Also, in portable gVim.7.4
for the same file
completes instantly, in less than 1 second.
I agree, sorting even 200 lines of "1" causes noticeable lag on my computer.
I hope it will be fixed.
I looked at the sorting code briefly back in April and it was difficult to understand what was going on, but appeared to have quadratic performance.
