Featured articleStoryTeller performance reflections
StoryTeller is a complex document composition engine with lots of flexibility. While the aim is to provide a tool as intuitive as possible, the user still has to know (or labor to find out) how to accomplish certain behavior. Even though the satisfaction of having the work done is pleasing, just visual perfection might not be enough. Especially with large data the design may take too long to process. In some cases there is no help, as the work just has to be done, but sometimes another approach may lead to significantly better result.
