But the biggest thing for me is that when you are manipulating
text (typing, deleting, moving your cursor) everything freezes.
You have to "guess" when you've deleted the text you wanted to
delete or you have to hit the delete key one time for each
character to be deleted. Same with typing. If you type fast,
MadCap goes into freeze mode until it catches up to your strokes.

This used to happen to me with DreamWeaver's HTML editor.

No useful comments here, just chuckling at the memory ;) I
think I learned to hold down SHIFT, use the arrow keys to highlight
the text that I wanted to delete, then hit DELETE. At least that
way I wouldn't be deleting a random amount of text ...
