Tony, have you tried it in an alternative browser? Some Firefox add-ons can have a big effect on performance...Harry
I will try it today in Chrome and Safari to see what the experience is like.
I'm still not digging the inability to deal with text in the way I would like. There is no ability to align, bold, underline or italicize text. And the text object sets it so that you have to remove the border and fill. Drives me crazy.
