I’m sorry you’re having some trouble. Could you describe a bit more what specifically you’re doing when the problem occurs? Is this a freeze when trying to import an RTF document a certain way? Have you loaded a lengthy Scrivenings session in the editor and are seeing lag when trying to type in it? Knowing the particulars will help us figure out what’s causing the problem and how to solve it.
