That's interesting.  I posited in one bug report that I thought that
the look up to the documentation might be the cause of the impossibly
slow movement via arrow keys in the Script Editor.

There are other issues with dramatic loss of performance in Rev on

I tried to use MetaCard on Linux late last year, but just couldn't get
used to it.  I guess I'm dependent on the added value that Runrev have
provided.
