Hi Terence,

On my even older MacBook, I need to wait about .5 second for each dialog 
to appear as sheet. If I print one single card, it is opened in Preview 
almost instantly. I'm using Mac OS X 10.6.8 today. Which version of OSX 
do you use?

I do notice that sheets slightly slower than normal dialogs. I don't 
know if this has to do with Carbon/Cocoa. How much of a delay do you 
observe?
