I know this has been posted before, but I was wondering how quick it would be to load a decent-sized (383kb) file with and without Fletchie's ConDrawOff and ConDrawOn code, so I modified the program a little bit

Just try both methods with the included text file - it is quite surprising

Yes, that's very impressive and what a speed difference!

It's the same method I am using in my editor when colouring text, turn off notification / messages first, colour the text and finally turn them back on again - speeds things up like you would not believe.

It really makes a difference even if speed is not an issue.

Day after day, day after day, we struck nor breath nor motion, as idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean.
