This was raised a fair while back. From memory, it was a Qt related
problem and not much we could do about it.

The main factors which influence the speed of redraw are the usual
candidates (processor, memory and wot not) as well as which version of
Qt you're using. The render speed has been greatly improved with Qt 3.2
and KDE 3.1

Erm, have a look at the Help ... About Scribus... While Franz is the
main chap for Scribus, he is by no means alone ;-p


(one of the contributors, admin of the anoncvs server, code validator
and quite a few other bits)

One OS to fool them all
One browser to find them
One email client to bring them all
And through security holes, blind them...
