Hi Al,

first of all, I cannot reproduce the fact that drawers have such
a major influence on time, wit a test file that I created to
be similar to what you describe.

There is a way to speed up drawer handling, by using text properties
instead of overlays. How have some vague plans to do this, but nothing concrete or soon.

My .org file contains ~5000 entries, organized in a tree like this:

The problem is that with the drawers activated, it's *very* slow. Cycling the
visibility mode takes more than 10 seconds.
If I remove the drawers configuration line (#+DRAWERS: MYDATA), speed comes back
to reasonable levels, but obviously I lose the drawer effect.

Is there a solution to improve the speed and using the drawers ?

Thanks in advance.
