This can't be helped at the moment, I imagine that the parsing system has
been left to allow for alterations and additions before the final
optimisations will be made to bring it up to speed.

I have forked the avian latex bundle on github, and corrected quite a few
issues, including the preferences problem you mention, that have arisen in

Yes, though you need to use .tm_properties and favourites.

I have been using the TM2 alpha since its release, and I'm currently
writing my PhD thesis - lots of teeing.  All in all, it is a great
improvement on TM1 in lots of different ways (which far outweigh the slow
parse speed when opening documents, at least for me!).

Congrats to Allan and all others involved!  Very much looking forward to
the official release.
