I posted this question in another thread, but it was suggested to inquire here instead. I (and others I have spoken with) have noticed that the speed of scrolling in the main text editor is quite sluggish compared to other operating systems. I tried looking at bug reports, but the ones I found are a couple years old. If I hold the up/down key on a source file, the scrolling will continue for a few seconds after I release the key.
This behavior is not exclusive to the java editor, as it also happens when viewing source with the plain text editor in eclipse.
Most suggestions I have read when searching for this have indicated increasing the memory size, but this does not seem to help at all. The only thing that appears to help is reducing the size of the editor; if the visible area is small, the scrolling is very smooth. It gets progressively slower when the editor area is increased.
I should also note that I am seeing Eclipse use 60-70% of CPU (from activity monitor) when I am scrolling on OS X, which seems absurdly high. This is on a 2011 Core i7 2.2 Ghz.
