    Scribus hogging resources

    Scribus 1.4.1

    I've been spending the day learning how to use Scribus. Sometimes, however, such as when I change color profiles or want to check out print previews, the program ramps up to 100% CPU usage and it freezes until it's finished. It's not crashing entirely, but it is annoying. Is it something I'm doing, or is there something I can do to avoid this?

    Sadly the application is known for that. With the old 1.3.x versioning there was a horrible xorg memory leak. They may or may not have ever fixed that.

    Apparently not, LOL. That's not good news, but at least I know what's going on. It's not the first quirk I've had with Scribus, but maybe once I know what to expect I'll be able to take it all in stride.

    Thanks for that Compiledkernel. It helps to know.
