That is great information, I will look into these work arounds but I am
still very disappointed with Inkscape.
After reading lots of positives about the program I thought that it
would be very good.
When I reach my final image with the filter effects applied I can no
longer edit anything and converting to a bitmap image is like crashing
your head into a brick wall:(
Sad to hear you're having so much trouble. Have you tried the current
development version (0.49)? It has a different renderer and can be quite
a bit faster in certain cases (among other things, the cache has been
improved). There are "nightly" builds available from the site (although
the link seems to be down at the moment, if you have trouble accessing
it, feel free to ask on the list for a build and I or someone else with
Windows will provide it).
If you still have problems with the development version, I'd love to see
an example of a really bad performing image, to see where the problem lies.
