Hello fellow DV users,

I have DV2 Pro (8.0.641). Yes antiquated (I'm eagerly waiting for the X4 to come out before upgrading). Does anyone experience any delays/stalling of the system when pressing Ctrl-A *and* the segment/sentence is quite long. This happens quite often in my machine. Shorter and medium-sized segments are ok.

Is this related to the size of the TM and lexicon? My TMs are quite large (+70,000 segments and more). When I place the cursor on a particular long segment for example, it takes at least 8-10 seconds for the Autosearch terms to appear on the right column. Or maybe related to the processing power of my laptop?

Thanks for any insights in advance,

You don't need more processing power, but a faster disk drive. Either get a good SSD or wait for new laptops with 8th Gen Intel processors and Intel Optane memory, which will offer SSD-like speeds using regular HDDs. I think I will go for the latter approach.
