Quark 6.5 very slow

Running Quark 6.5 on Mac OS X 10.4.10.  Having problems when working on larger files.  One file is 60MB.  When I try to type something in a new text box it goes extremely slow and the text only shows up in chuck, for instance if I typed "this is a test" I might only see the text pop up once I typed "test"

Smaller documents work fine.  I also had no problems with even larger files than that with quark 6.1.

My guess is you need more RAM, but you might see what people on the Quark specific forum linked above say.

Maybe you don't have enough RAM or in the alternative, are running out of disk space for the scratch files?
