And wow ! It's a lot quicker at navigating around the document !  That's 
a big improvement.

It still seems to have the problem that if you go into the story editor 
and out again, on screen at least, the font used to render the story is 
bigger than it should be. Not show stopping and fixable, but certainly 

I also seem to have a problem copying (Alt-E C) blocks of text from the 
document view. When I paste them I only get one line of the block. I 
have the impression that this only happens where I've applied a style.

I assume the above are known bugs ?

And still no support for the spelling checker under windows ??  Any news 
on that ?
