    Hi !
    I am developing a java desktop application that can be used as a text editor
    (among other things). It works fine on windows and linux, but there is one
    problem when it runs on mac os x: the text scrolling is very slow.
    Everything else works fine (it is an awt/swing app).

    I have tried to put at the start of the main() method - the statement:
    Code:
    System.setProperty("apple.awt.graphics.UseQuartz","true"); 
    But there is no result. The scrolling is equally slow with and without this command.
    Is there a way to make scrolling of the text normal (as it is on windows and linux) ?

    The mac platform is: mac os x - snow leopard 10.6.8.
    The java used: java - 1.7.0_21 (64 bit).
