This should only be a problem under Jaguar (10.2.x) and was corrected by Apple in Panther (10.3.x). Also, users with faster machines running Jaguar may not even notice the problem. The slowness is due to the time required to build all of the pop-up menus in the Story Engine window. Also, once you start selecting items the speed of opening and operating the Story Engine will get faster.
