QT Edit takes longer to save to network volumes

You may notice that QT Edit takes longer to save a file to a network volume than to a local volume. If you save to a local volume, QT Edit updates the file in-place which is extremely fast. However, if you save to a non-local volume, updating in-place is dangerous and can potentially cause corruption, so QT Edit rewrites the entire file which takes longer.

Therefore the overall file size makes a difference to how long it takes to save on a network volume, where it doesn't on a local one. Our recommendation is to wait for the save operation to finish but some users may prefer to copy large files locally first.
