It is entirely possible that English is the
OP's  second or maybe third language. Scribus
is after all an international project. How is
your Dutch these days? Mine is nonexistent,
despite having a grandfather named Rowse. I am
grateful that posters from other lands take pity
on monoglots like me and converse in my birth

As for his problem, I don't know the disease but
upgrading to 1.4.3 would be the first therapy I
would apply. If his file is book length I would
break it up into chapter segments as a second

If you want lightning speed in processing a long
complex book at one shot then TeX plus a good
text editor comes closer than Scribus. But Scribus
has many other virtues.
