It’s a funny question to ask, it might seem at first, but I was wondering if there was a way to increase the amount of memory ME dedicates to caching files for open editor windows. I have 2 GB of RAM (1GB seems to get used by Vista but that leaves me 1+GB for email, IM, and editing small text files with ME.
Is there a place where I can increase the amount of memory ME uses for caching files in memory? I am enjoying deleyd’s macro modification in the suggestion forums that will let me do a file compare on changed files (when a file changes on disk from some other person/process and it is open in ME too). I find that I quite often don’t have the entire original file in memory. Since I have plenty of RAM to spare and these text files are generally pretty small (less than 10K each, with no more than 10 open at a time) I’d like to try to adjust ME to keep most, if not all, open files completely in memory.
If you were to move to the end of a loaded file, it will then be fully loaded into memory until it is closed. The partial loading of files is used to speed up the startup of Multi-Edit when loading multiple files.
