Large Actions in QTP causing IDE slowdown
QTP 9.5 with Web-addin loaded.
Tried to search for posts related to large actions but couldn't find anything relevant
We're using a framework which uses a QTP action to store a library of Function definitions. The Action receives a string as an argument which is then parsed and the appropriate function from within the action is executed. The size of this action has recently crossed the 4000 lines mark and we've started to experience a big slowdown in the QTP IDE, to the point of pressing [return] several times will cause a lag of 5-10seconds. This obviously makes editing code much more time-consuming and very frustrating.
Has anyone else encountered this / what are other peoples experiences with using large actions. I'm still investigating this issue but believe it is related to the size of the action since when editing other actions within the same Test I do not see the same lag issues.
All help is greatly appreciated and thanks in advance :-)

Try using QTP Script Editor instead. It is a external editor from HP only.
