Hi I've noticed at times that moving the cursor around in a Frame 8 file can be rather sluggish. This is when I'm using the arrow key to move the cursor along a line of text. I've also noticed that using the shift+arrow keys to select text can be really slow as well. However, at other times the cursor moves at what I consider to be a normal speed.
The other day I think I found out why. The movement of the cursor slows right down when I have Paragraph Designer open. I did a timed test on a random line of text. With PD closed, it took 4 seconds to run the cursor from one end of the line to the other, but with PD open it took 14 seconds. If I selected the line using Shift+arrow, the times were about the same. I repeated the test with PD closed and Character Designer open, but this time it took about 5 seconds. I've duplicated the test in Frame 6, and both PD and CD have no noticeable effect on the speed of the cursor movement. Has anyone else noticed this behaviour? It's not a big problem, just a nuisance. I'm on Frame 8.0p277 and Win XP.
