I’m running scrivener on a samsung n230 netbook (upgraded to 2Gb), and have run previous versions of scrivener fine.
1.7, though, I find extremely slow. It’s responsive in the menus and switching between part-screen to full-screen - but really slow when I type.
For example: I can clatter my fingers over the keys and not see anything appear, even after 20s or so. When I let my fingers up, scrivener thinks about it for about 5s, then all letters appear at once. I’ve tried this on word pad and the response is instant. Also, if I hold a key down, nothing happens for a while, then letters appear all in a bunch.
I type pretty fast (over 60wpm), so it’s a bit disconcerting to type for a while, and see nothing come up on the screen till I stop.
I’ve turned off all auto checking, spellchecks, etc and also upped the time between saves, but nothing seems to make a difference.
As I say, I had no issues with previous versions. This is, in fact, the first version I upgraded properly, by deleting everything before loading the new version - up to now I just clicked the exe.
Has anyone else had this issue? Or do you think its’ something to do with my netbook configuration?
