I am using LR4 on a Mac with 8 gb ram, I7 processor and OSX.
I have been using LR since LR1. LR4 is terribly slow. Trying to move photos from one folder to another takes about 20-30 seconds per folder on file sizes of about 6 to 12 mb. Is Adobe aware of this? If they are, I'll be patient. If not, it will force me to consider changing programs.

Hi Lance,

This issue is improved in the second Lightroom 4.1 public Release Candidate, available for download here:

Note that it is still slow, it's not yet as fast as it should be, and we're working on that. But it is much faster than it was before.

Thanks,
Ben
