The editor in Dreamweaver 20.2s so slow that I can regularly type ahead.
The editor in Dreamweaver 20.2 Build 15263 is so slow that I can regularly type ahead of the response on the screen, and I sometimes get a “not responding” message.
I am editing an HTML file that is 28KB, but has 20 images of approximately 25 KB each. In addition to the source code there is also the following: bootstrap-4.2.1.css file, custom.css, jquery.fancybox.min.css, nav.inc. footer.inc.
Other open applications include MS Word, Firefox, and Outlook.
All files reside on the my desktop PC, which is an Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-6300 CPU @ 3.80GHz, with 16.0 GB Installed RAM, running a 64-bit OS and Windows 10 Pro, Build 18362.959. No processor has more than a trivial amount of usage and no disk is much more than half used.
BTW, the Dreamweaver editor is slowest when backspacing.
