Related to text and slowing computer

I got a P4 1.7 w/512 ddr
why does my computer gets all slow when i put text boxes with more than 5 lines of text?

I’m sure LA had a problem with text a while back, perhaps he can help :slight_smile:

Is the text constantly updating itself… like in a loop? I know this will bog down the processor… other than that I’m not too sure why it would do that. Text is hardly processor intensive.
