Prevent Autocompleting, Type Argument Changing, and Syntax Validation

Currently, when using UiPath Studio, especially with larger projects, making small, incremental changes can be glacial when they should take milliseconds. Changing a type seemingly causes UiPath to do syntax validation on the entire workflow, taking forever to complete. Is it possible to configure this to run when the file is saved only or when manually invoked (such as using Validate File or running the project)?

Also, for example, changing expressions in a For Each loop changing the type argument of the loop, which then causes cascading effects. Couples with the syntax validation, this is extremely slow. It would be nice if we could disable this, since it causes glacial project creation.

Finally, autocompletion is nice most of the time, but some of us also like more lightweight solutions, where type deduction (either via an LSP or otherwise) isn’t done to avoid any overhead when we know exactly what we will input.

Thanks. If I could access these features, or if these features could be implemented, I could finish most automations in some cases 3x faster, which would be a major productivity win for our organization.
