I’ve changed the way the GEDCOMs are read in. They used to be loaded into a RichEdit that was shown in the GEDCOMs and Input Log window. Then they would be read from the RichEdit to load the data. Now I load the data directly from the GEDCOM files. This saves about 25% of the file loading time, so another small improvement.
But more importantly, Behold is now loading the file piece by piece, so it can show the progress and allow the Stop button to work during the GEDCOM loading.
I also changed the GEDCOM button to now load the GEDCOMs with a Text Viewer. By default it uses Wordpad which should be available in every version of Windows. Then I added a “Text Viewer” menu item, where you can change the viewer if you want to a text viewer or editor of your choice.
