It takes between 8-10 seconds to respond to a single character deletion and around 15 seconds to respond to a carriage return in the middle of a paragraph, displaying the Mac rotating beachball each time.
There have been some reports of issues like this. From what I can gather, it is very rare.

Tell me, does this happen with all epub books, or just this one? If it's just this one, then create the issue and attach the epub... otherwise I don't know how to help you. If it happens with all epub books, then it must be your system.

This is unrelated, and not a Sigil issue, but a Sony PRS-505 issue. The Mobile Digital Editions version on the 505's always displays books left justified, even if the markup in them specifies full justification. So your book is probably fully justified.

They fixed this in later versions of Mobile DE, hopefully we'll get it in the firmware update that's coming at the end of this month.
