Thank you for your feedback. We thought we would release this earlier, but have now reverted status back to "Under Review" as we assess our use of such rich-text controls. We are still considering adding it to our (longer term) roadmap.

Thank you for your feedback. We are continuously trying to optimize the VS Code performance when authoring and deploying AL extensions. The most significant impact is to limit working with large monolithic solutions, avoiding loading and compiling all objects in memory. This require componentization of the base application as well as custom solutions over the coming years.
