A fix for Pages issues with some Word diagram imports Apps
After struggling for a few hours with Pages crashing all the time, and taking about 30 seconds to figure out I had hit any given key, I came up with a fix.

What I had been doing at the time was compiling a master document using information from a colleague who had used Word to create his document. I had been copying Word diagrams across to Pages, and Pages had started running really, really slowly. It was taking approximately a minute to copy the figures across, and everything was generally very slow. I restarted Pages, and the same thing was happening, with it starting to take longer and longer as more diagrams were added. In the end, Pages would only remain stable for about 30 seconds.

Then I realized, once I scrolled down to the bottom of the page, that the thumbnails were not loading as fast as I had just scrolled -- I had just restarted Pages, so I could scroll. I figured out that Pages was getting hung up and taking ages because it was rendering those thumbnails. It was evidently having a problem with the Word diagram thumbnails (there were about 30 pages of them). When I closed the thumbnails drawer, Pages returned to normal speed.
