Slow to add characters/creators

I recently upgraded to Windows 7, so I also upgraded to the newest version of Comicster. However, now, when I am adding characters or creators to a particular issue, I am experiencing a long delay between clicking on the 'add a...' link and having the window appear for me to actually add the character. When I first launch Comicster it seems to be quite quick... but it gets progressively slower as I use the program until I am looking at almost a 10 second lag.

Any idea what might be causing this?

    Wow. This is new to me. Can you email me your collection (cmxx) file? mabster -at- madprops.org. I'll try opening it and adding some appearances to an issue and see if I can see the same behaviour.

    This was solved offline. It came down to the size of Jeremy's collection. The "add appearance" dialog sorts the list of characters, and the sorting was taking a long time. Doing the sorting up front before showing the dialog has sped this up immensely.
