Poor TextArea performance
I'm trying to use an TextArea-item to edit large amounts of text. Unfortunately, the performance is quite bad :) In my use case, the text property is initialised from an expression that calls an Q_INVOKABLE which then returns a large block of text as a QString. Even with a few thousand lines of 50 characters each, the application main thread freezes: the text area cannot receive focus and the cursor position takes long to update.
Is this a known issue? Does anyone know of alternative controls - possibly third party - for text editing with QML?
