1.4 gets REALLY slow!

Post by Kate »

I am not that fast a typist (50-60 wpm) but Nisus Pro 1.4 often runs so slow that I have to sit back and wait for 30 seconds or more to wait for the word processing to catch up with me. When it bogs down like this, deleting a word with the backspace key also goes VERY slowly. I am running Nisus Pro on an iMac (1.25 GHz PPC G4 with 1 GB DDR SDRAM) running 10.5.8). I will be grateful for any tips y'all might have for how I can persuade Nisus to behave more sprightly.

I am running on a similar system (PPC but 1.8 Ghz, 1.5 GB ram) & suddenly had the same problem and remembered this post. It turned out I had a Find window open in the background with text in it. As soon as I closed the Find window, typing speed went back to normal.

Thanks for the reply. I don't think that has been the case in my slow-downs, but I will be alert for that possibility (the open find window) the next time this happens. Thanks again, and Happy 2010!
