Hi All, I am trying to debug a problem with very sluggish Saving of a notebook, as well as cutting and pasting of cells in a notebook, with around 10 GraphicsGrid's of 10x8 MatrixPlot's that are around 10x10 each. When I save the notebook, it takes quite a while, enough to make the notebook unusable. If I make a small change and save it again, it takes just as long (10+ minutes). But the CPU is idle during this time. It seems like Mathematica is either doing nothing or waiting on something. Was wondering if this is a bug and if there is a workaround. The notebook itself is about 1mb, so it's relatively small. The MatrixPlot's seem to be stored as GraphicsBox[RasterBox[CompressedData["<string>"]]]. I know very little about the internal format of Notebook's I'm using 6.0.2 on Linux 64-bit. Thanks, Art.
