Have you found that some templates made as separate png files in programs other than DIP/DIS run S L O W L Y when filling with paper in DIP/DIS??
I have found a solution that seems to be working well so far (touch wood.)

Open a new canvas in DIP.
Drag the first png layer onto the canvas and centre.'s the trick!
FLATTEN this layer.
Now drag the next layer onto the canvas, centre and FLATTEN.
Notice how the marching ants are now only around the shape and not
the whole canvas.
Repeat with each layer.
You can now close the png files from the Files Palette.
Now fill each layer with papers/photos.

I have used this method with several templates and it seems to be working well.

Another tip: If the bottom layer that comes with the separate png files is just a
full 12x12 to act as the background, don't use that layer. Just drag a digi paper
onto your pieced together template and drag it to the bottom. I have also
found this to be of help because it takes less memory to do that than filling a
12x12 shape with paper.

Let me know if you find the same difference as I did.
