Subject: Logbook drawer entries make editing very slow
Date: Wed, 20 Feb 2013 09:03:13 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <87wqu3xvi6.fsf@hsdev.com> (raw)


I'm using habit-style items a lot in my 'org' routine. A typical entry
would look like this:

*** TODO Do something daily                                                     
SCHEDULED: <2013-02-20 wo .+1d>
- State "DONE"       from "TODO"       [2013-02-19 di 14:01]
- State "DONE"       from "TODO"       [2013-02-17 zo 12:39]
[lots of entries here]
- State "DONE"       from "TODO"       [2010-02-25 Thu 13:51]
- State "DONE"       from "TODO"       [2010-02-10 Wed 15:19]

...Some description...

I have all habits in a file habits.org which is part of the
'org-agenda-files' list.

When editing entries in the habits.org file, for example changing the
header, emacs CPU using goes to 100% and every keystroke takes 5-10

Apparently the long list of logbook entries is making
org-mode do a lot of work.  If I remove the logbook entries from a
header, editing it becomes fast again 

I've run elp-instrument-package and the top lines in the results were:
(while entering some text in the heading)

Is there anything I can do to improve performance. If possible I'd
like to keep the logbook entries in the same file as the habits.
