Everything is fast on my system, except for this new "refresh" problem in the File Preview window in version 4.0 and later. This doesn't happen in 3.48. I have a hard time believing that the code was written to first look at default HTML styles and then refresh the preview window using the ebook's stylesheet.css codes after every edit.
It very well could be a lack of memory as 32-bit Windows are limited to 3GB. Calibre 4.x is a total under-the-hood change from previous Calibre. Calibre 4.x now uses QT webengine because the other QT Calibre was using was rather buggy and is not really supported. So a change had to be made.
