I've not seen sluggishness in this way. Having said that, if you're
working with a lot of text that links many many frames, then there might
be some sluggishness. Remember that you can press Ctrl-U to update the
text without exiting Story Editor. It's also worth mentioning that some
Scribus users avoid Story Editor because it's a bit clunky. You can edit
right on the workspace with Edit Contents mode.

All of these No Style labels relate to the fact that you can change the
style paragraph by paragraph, so you can see which ones you might have
applied some style to. Story Editor, of course, doesn't show the text in
any style other than its own (which is changeable).

Scribus has its own balderdash, but the layout should be pretty stable
on saving and reopening.
