Description pekarna 2013-06-07 20:23:27 UTC
Editing a .css file is a pain:
Every time a popup appears, which is after every each space or enter, the code completion dialog appears, with a help window.
But the help window appears gray and it takes 2-3 seconds to load.
During that time, the IDE UI is stuck.

Seems like it's the help content rendering which takes so long.

Maybe it could be wise to pre-render it in the background for all values  when the CSS file is opened?
Or show the help on second Ctrl+space?
Or maybe render in the background and show it when the rendering is done?

This started to work fine after restart of NetBeans.

BTW I'm curious whether this was caused by the browser rendering. If this happen again to you please take several threaddumps or take the ide thread snapshot and attach it here. Thanks in advance.
