Opening Large Text Files

    Hi, whenever I open large text files (> 500K), the program freezes for several seconds before finishing the loading.  This doesn't happen in other text editors (i.e. wordpad, editpad), so I was wondering if Notepad++ did some sort of complete file parsing before loading.  Do you know of any settings I can tweak to improve performance?  These are plain text files (.TXT), not source code, so they do not need any sort of highlighting.

    Thanks for a wonderful program; it's replaced my 'general purpose text editor' and 'source code editor'

      EDIT:  I found out that my problem was having word wrap enabled - disabling it fixed my problem.

      Notepad++ seems to take longer to do word wrap for large text files than wordpad does, at least on my system.  I will look into this some more.
