After a recent crash I had to reinstall elements 6. Now the keyword and album pallette controls are really slow. Dragging icons onto one or one hundred selected images isn't a problem, but if I attempt to expand or collapse the keyword window it takes forever and puts an enormous load on the cpu. Any ideas?
Yes, I tied that to no avail. To be more specific: not only do the keyword and album windows (or whatever you call them) take a long time to expand or collapse...the same is true of the individual keyword categories, i.e. 'people', 'places' etc. Also the entire organizer takes longer than it should to open. I think this is because it's opening the keywords etc. as part of starting up. In the windows task manager elements cpu usage jumps to 50% or more as it's laboring away at these malfunctioning operations.
Thanks for your interest,
