I've just switched from one of your competitors' Syntax Editors to your control, and it works great for most things. However, I've found it's slow to load large pieces of text into the editor, which is a bit of an issue because it blocks the UI thread. Is there anyway to speed up this process, or load the text asynchronously. I'm simply setting the Text property on the control, which is where the delay occurs.

Hello, there is a "Large File Handling" topic that has some tips that might help.  In our newer WPF/Silverlight version design, we greatly improved large files though, and allow them to open nearly instantly.  We eventually would like to backport that design back to the WinForms version, since it's quite an improvement.
