When I tab into my atom editor, I experience several seconds where there is no response to key presses. Once the editor catches up the key presses appear in the code. This lag also occurs when typing certain characters such as semi-colon ( ; )
I have an i5-6300U processor and 8GB of RAM, and when monitoring the task manager there is no notable spike in processing power or RAM usage. I also have tried disabling all community packages to no avail.
