I've been using Dropbox Paper to take notes while working through a textbook. Currently, my document is at 31 pages and 6,681 words. At this point, working in my document is extremely sluggish. There is almost 1sec of lag time between pressing a key and having that keypress registered.
As a stop-gap measure I've broken up my notes and created a new document for each chapter. This helps, but it's much more convenient to quickly jump between chapters in one document rather than having to back out of the current doc and track down a chapter in a folder.
Is this a known-issue? Are there any plans in the works to address performance issues?
I'm using Chrome Version 65.0.3325.162 (Official Build) (64-bit) on an early 2015 Macbook Pro (El Capitan, 2.7GHz Core i5 w/ 8GB RAM).
Solved! Go to Solution.
I am having the same issue. My document is 12k words. The workflow I like to use is having one single document where everyone can collaborate on, especially customers, so it makes maintaing just a single URL much easier.
However, now, typing has become extremely slow - I will type a sentence fragment, and need to wait what seems like 30 seconds for it to show up.
I will see which parts of the document can be moved off into a separate "archive" document, but the ability to navigate to any section within the current page is quite handy.
