I am not sure if this is a bug or something else. If this has been covered elsewhere, please direct me there.
I am using Ubuntu 11.04 on a Lenovo laptop.
If I delete a long block of text by holding down the backspace key or hold down the arrow key for about 5 or more seconds, everything gets slow. I mean I type at normal speed and only 1/2 the characters will appear on the screen and the cursor seems to get stuck. “This is a pen” will be “Th sp.” It happens in editor and full screen mode.
I have to quit and restart Scrivener to get it to stop.
Any help anyone can give me would be very much appreciated.
