Smooth Scrolling

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 134.174.149.186] on April 09, 2008 11:00 PM
I like AbiWord, but on my old laptop it was so slow that it was basically unusable. It took ages to figure out that this is because of the smooth scrolling "feature", and quite a while to figure out how to turn it off (no option in the GUI, you have to edit the profile file manually). I do hope this was fixed in this release.
