Hi Tim, hi Chris,

Shout uses a background process only for texts larger than 4095 characters. See PluggableTextMorphPlus >> #setText:. In all other cases, text styling is synchronuous. Counting local Trunk image, that's - for example - for only 153 out of 61043 methods. So 0.003%.

I have no idea, where this character threshold comes from. :-) Maybe that should be reduced for slow machines?

OK, but I can say from experience that it didn't do a very good job of that on a slow machine (e.g. the original Pi with the non-cog vm) where the only way to get tolerable typing response was to uninstall it!
