PowerLanguage Editor Far Too Slow, needs multi-threading

Go to the next issue (open or closed)
Go to the next open issue

When entering text into the powerlanguage editor on a fairly long bit of code (a few hundred lines or so of indicator, signal, etc), it is extremely difficult to use because it often takes 5 to 10 seconds for the keyboard input to show up in the editor and frequently takes over one second (on a 2GHz dual-core system). I believe this is due to the various parsing, error-checking, and tip window processes that are going on apparently on the same thread. The editor needs to be brought up to modern standards with this sort of processing going on in a separate thread or at least with keyboard processing having priority because this speed is painful when coding.

Steps to reproduce this issue

Create or open an indicator or signal with lots of inputs and variables that is fairly long, like a few hundred lines.  Add additional code to the indicator, like new inputs and variables and logic and observe how extremely long the editor frequently takes to respond to keyboard and mouse input.
