Impress does not seem to be made for large card sets.
Opening a 530 cards file takes 18 seconds, saving it with just an additional space inserted takes 10 seconds. Since the program is blocked and unusable during the operations, this makes autosave very annoying.
It would be great if the load and save time could be decreased and (auto)save be moved into a seperate thread in order not to interfere with ongoing work.

This is an old test file.
This file has just over 1000 slides and takes just over 20 seconds to save on my computer. It looks like the time scales with the number of slides.
Also, editing itself slows down the more cards there are. This seems to happen in steps of roughly 50-100 cards.
