Have recently upgraded to FM9 and applied the patches. Files that took a few seconds to load into FM6 are now taking up to 10 minutes to load into FM9. These files are not massive but do have cross-references, conditional text, text insets and eps and jpg graphics. I have also tried importing eps graphics into new FM9 files and this either slows the machine to nearly a full stop or crashes. JPGs are not a problem. We have tried loading the same files to FM9 on a similar spec machine on the same network connection and that loads the files OK. The PC in question is: HP Compaq DX2200MT; Intel Pentium 4, 3.2 GHz; 768 Mb RAM, 80 Gig HD of which 20 Gig is free; Windows XP Pro, Version 2002, SP3. ATi Fire GL 3100, latest driver from their web-site. Any input on this issue is very welcome.
