Text import?

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 195.50.35.4] on April 10, 2008 08:24 AM
How is importing text and copy/pasting large text bits now?
I found that Abiword would hang when I imported large text files - pure ASCII from gutenberg.org - and sometimes when I pasted large (100+ pages) texts into it.
That is actually my only problem with Abiword; otherwise, it has served me immensely well. I wrote quite a few university projects in Abiword, and that was very Unicode-focused - with me being Danish and writing with long excerpts in Russian.
