Double buffered internal Text Editor

I know that its possible to set any other external text editor.
But it would be nice if the internal text editor could be made a little more fluent in scrolling.
When scrolling trough large configuration files it sometimes feels a little clumsy.
Also the leftclick + scrollwheel operates the zoom factor. This makes it difficult to select and scroll at the same time.

I realize that there are much more important things to implement, but it would be nice if the internal text editor could get some refurbishing.

Re: Double buffered internal Text Editor

It might be something specific about your devices.

For example, for me the Ctrl+Scroll does not zoom.

What system/devices do you have?

It is LeftClick + Scroll that zooms, but that is a side matter.

My main point was that the text editor doesnt feel smooth and feels like its having difficulty scrolling trough large files.

For example, open a text file with a lot of lines in it.
And use the scrollwheel to scroll down fast.
Now do the same with windows notepad or notepad++ it is a lot smoother.
Sometimes the internal text editor is not done scrolling while i already stopped moving my mousewheel

So do you actually want to make the internal editor to scroll by lines, instead of the fluent scroll?
Because I read your first post to say the opposite.

I am trying to find how i can explain what i mean.

The fluent scroll, is not fluent enough when fast scrolling with the mousewheel.
