Preview loading

Even though I have a reasonably fast (but not superfast) DSL connection, my book previews take a long time to load. During this time, there is no status messsage, no "loading..." bar, just a blank and nonresponsive window. That's disconcerting!

If I accidentally click outside the preview, it doesn't just change the focus-- it closes the preview! And I have to start the load all over again.

Also, one of my previews was OK, but now fails to load (window opens, 2,3 minutes go by, nothing). I'm now recreating it, just in case... we'll see! It's taking really long to generate the new preview...

And is the load time due to heavy graphics? Each page is 5 or 6 MB in the original file... I hope they are being compressed for the preview!


Any improvements here are appreciated

They do behave odd at times. Let's hope the changes have cured that, and other site slowness.
