I like Abiword a lot but my Powerbook G4 keyboard behaves strangely. When I move the cursor with the arrow keys it leaves either black bars wherever the cursor passes or partially wipes out the passed over characters. What is that?

I have had similar problems with abiword in 9.04 on a PC, so it is probably not just the apple ppc architecture, but an abiword problem. I also find that large documents with many pages are completely un-navigable and tend to freeze completely. It's a great shame as it would be great to have a simpler wordprocessor than OOo when all you need is a very short doc. or letter.

At least OOo 3.1 is much faster than the older versions.

Thank you. That's what I thought because when composing an email in Evolution for example it does not do that.
