but before a dialog can be programmed, we have to know what the "bad"
action is...

basically, scribus often goes in "idle" modus when start an action and
stops its "idle" modus when the whole action is over.

since you don't get a "real" error, there does not seem to be a full
action which is slow for you, but it's probably a part of it that in
certain circumstances misbehaves.

since this happens on your computer, and we can't see your monitor, we
can only guess the cause if you give exact details about what happens,
in which contest and at what time scribus get unresponsive.

the best case is when you can give exact steps (with a sample .sla
document) to reproduce the issue.

have a nice evening
