Please show me that energeezer that type something every second and even have time to inspect tags while doing it. :) It is quite unrealistic to me. On other hand if someone is just typing parse delay can be annoying if his file is HUGE.

Actually I was happy with Geany performance even before any related changes, so it is not very important to me, but I think it can be usefull to topic starter.

No, I suspected this first and disabled UI update during research (delay seemed the same), but maybe it is worth to make smart update. Parser report that some tags were actually changed and you call UI update only then (if it is not done already)
