Recently bought the Concise Oxford English Dictionary 11 (COED11.) If I open it in Logos 4 and start typing a word into its search box, there are pauses lasting seconds between characters. Any suggestions on speeding this up?

The associated index file (LLS_COED11_2009_10_27T17_44_36Z.mstidx) is huge (13MB.) In case it was corrupt, I tried deleting it and restarting L4, but it made no difference.

Most other resources respond instantly -- even large one like 4-Vol ISBE.

Hardware=Core 2 Duo laptop with 4GB RAM. OS=Win7 62-bit.

Allen I just tried this, and I confirm that there is a slow down as well.

Thanks, Thomas. At least I know now that it's not something I have done, or can address easily. Appreciated.

Webster's 11th edition has the same slow response issue.

Webster's 10th edition is a better but also is sluggish.

Yes, very sluggish even in 4.0a beta.
