After fixing a hard-drive failure, I am installing GVIM on my Thinkpad X230T laptop running Windows 10. Things are working well except for the rending speed of buffers for
*.tex files. The problem is: with
syntax on, the buffer of latex renders exceptionally slow. Here goes a list of "features":
- It takes seconds to refresh a buffer of size 1920*1080 (in pixels) when I press
- If I shrink the size of the buffer, the rendering gets faster. Still, I shall experience a second lag at minimum. During the lag, I can only see a blank buffer.
- Text operations are also slow. Simply starting a new line below by pressing
oshall also end up with a one-second-lag. This is largely due to the rendering of the whole buffer after adding that single line: all the lines that follows shall be refreshed for their "new" position.
I have applied all the suggested options mentioned in this post (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/8300982/vim-slow-running-latex-files), yet I still get the same slow rendering speed.
I was only experiencing this exceptional slowdown on my X230T. With exactly the same
_vimrc on the other two desktop machines, I don't even experience a tiny lag in the rendering speed. Nor did I experience the rendering problem with previous installation of Windows 7 and 8 on the same X230T laptop.
Lastly, for hard drive, I am having a SSD on my X230T, which worked pretty well so far; and I have HDD on both the other two desktop machines.
Any advice would be very helpful!
Thanks a lot!
All the best,
