There is still some optimising to be done in the View beta. The speed of a large editable area is one one of them. Currently, if you reduce the area e.g halve the height, you will get a more reasonable edit speed. This might be an indicator of the improvement to come, in the experimental version of BeOS I find that a large screen edit is faster than std native BeOS editor. So I'm waiting to see if this improvement will be the same across all platforms with the next beta release. Cheers, Allen K
