Typing lyrics slowly
S4 - Minor
This appears only in projects of larger size, but I've found the program typically delays in typing lyrics for about a second or so for some reason. I've tried updating and reinstalling the app, and restarting my computer but nothing is solving this problem. I use a 2013 Macbook Pro, so it may just be my computer getting old. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?
Hard to say without the score - can you attach it?
In general, bigger scores will be somewhat slower, although we normally try to only layout the portion that has changed, so small changes should always be fast. I guess if you're in continuous view, the automatic alignment of lyrics could slow things down.
Here's my file:
I suggest that when it starts slowing down like that, start using page view. It's faster than continuous view and slows down slower.
That score responds quite quickly for me, and my hardware isn't anything special. Probably indeed yours is on the old side. Do try switching to page view to see if it helps.

That fixes the problem, thanks!
(also, I just realized that I was using software version 3.0 and didn't realize there was an update lol. I've updated my software)
Ah, in 3.2.3, continuous view is a lot faster than in 3.0, so you may well find you don't need to switch to page view after all if you don't want. I can believe 3.0 would have been noticeably slower in continuous view.
