Scribus 1.5.8 on windows10 very slow.

Previous topic - Next topic



I am using Scribus for years now.
I have a "sensation" that he is very slow. I use some scripts also, they could work for "some" minutes, second before.
Is it possible that a Windows Update could be the explination ?

It is probably more an issue of the performance of your PC, especially how much RAM you have.


I agree with Nermander.
The OS version is unlikely to be critical

I suggest you update your profile with your hardware spec
- CPU, RAM and Disk type (SSD or HDD)

I've just bought a desktop with 12th Gen Core i5-12400, 8GB RAM + SSD
The difference from my laptop AMD A8-6410, 16GB RAM, + SATA SSD is HUGE
The old AMD CPU scored a PassMark of 1,760
The new Intel CPU score a PassMark of 19,492
