Speed differences in real-time saving to database

I have this workflow here where I watch changes to the Rich Text Editor, and save them to database (RTE’s autosave option is ON so it saves every few seconds).

When I had a simpler looking editor, the saving was very smooth. The browser didn’t have this progress bar when it was saving.

However, when I changed to a more complicated UI (more elements on the page that have nothing to do with the RTE) - even though the above workflow and database structure remains the same, the saving was choppy and there’s a progress bar every time it saves.

Any idea why the difference? How do I find out what exactly is the browser or app busy with?

Oops, I think I got it.

There’s a 2nd workflow with the opposite condition “and Current document not empty”, and apparently simply checking this additional condition makes it slow down considerably!
