Hi Greg

I used Activity monitor and don’t think it is a memory issue - I have 28GB RAM installed and it is using ~ 3GB

However, watching CPU usage was very interesting. If I select a page (beachball appears) the usage goes from ~ 0.2 - 35% / 60% - if I then try and move one of the arrows annotating a photograph it shoots up to 98%

There is a 5-10 sec delay whilst the beachball spins at this point

Hope all this helps - sure would be good to get a more useable base
kind regards
