yes, i've noticed. but it's also just displaying that is slow. i was even
begining to think that it's not that bad and i can live with it, but than
after few minutes back to pagemaker... it's uncomparable.
and why it takes several seconds for pdfs (just text and picture) to display
in adobe...? while similar ones show instantly. i don't see how it could be
connected to hardware.
anyway, thank you for your suggestions!
ps. i also tried fedora yesterday and it's the same. please, tell me that it
is not just how this program works...
