I’m finishing up a novel written 100% in Dynalist, and I’m quickly becoming a fangirl of this app!
But I’m having a weird problem now that I’m in the editing phase. I do my edits with an apple pencil and scribble handwriting input on the iPad. For some reason this makes me much more efficient in my edits, so I’d like to stick with it.
I do have the entire novel in one list, with about 2000 items and 65,000 words. I only have one chapter expanded or isolated at one time, usually. At the top of the page with about 150 items and 2000 words, the input works like a dream. But near the bottom of the page, it lags pretty badly and drops most of my words.
Why would this happen, if the entire page is loaded into memory and if the display is full of text in both instances? I’m trying to figure out how to work around it, but I’m not familiar enough with web programming and iOS to figure out why this is happening. It occurs in the app as well as in Safari, chrome, and Firefox.
I don’t want to start chopping up my novel into sub-chapter pieces unless absolutely necessary, so any input or ideas about possible alternative workarounds would be greatly appreciated.
