Would I be correct in guessing that you end up with a large set of
linked text frames? I've definitely noticed performance issues with
linked frames, and I would expect columns of classified ads to use them.


If this is the problem you are seeing, Scribus should be much faster
when you're working on the _end_ of your document than the beginning.

Unfortunately, the only work-around I could find was to un-link the
frames. After that, everything was back to normal. This required copying
the text out of a frame, unlinking it, and pasting the text back in as
there does not appear to be any option to unlink a frame without
clearing its contents.
