abiword 2.8.6 in 11.10 was fine for me. After a 12.04 fresh install, abiword 2.9.2 is now available... and I definitly can't use it!
- scrolling the text with the mousewheel is impossible. It only works in the lift at the very right of the screen.
- everything is very slow. e.g. Ctrl + G (Go to page...) needs several seconds to display. It then needs a few more seconds before I can type the page number I want to reach
- the rule at the top of the text no more exists. A black line is dsplayed
- when going down in the texte, display briefly disapears (1 or 2 tenth of a second) between each new line
Since I definitly can't work with it, I restored 11.10.
Abiword website tell version 2.9.2 is unstable and should not be used
I think about a compatibility problem with GTK
Do you know more about that ?
