Slow Typing Filemaker Pro 10

Description of the issue

I use Filemaker Pro 10.0v1 and am running Mac OS X 10.5.6 to access my database which is running on Filemaker Server version 10. The server is hosted by a Mac running Mac OS X 10.4.11.  There are no more than 10 persons connected to the server at any one time.In my database I have a very large field into which I keep a running log of all activity that occurs with reference to my clients. I have found Filemaker 10 to be unusable in the sense that typing is delayed and often I have to wait 10 seconds or more to have the words that I have typed appear in the field. The secretaries in my office have gone back to Filemaker 9. I have created a work around where I type into a separate field and then use a script to paste the text into the field where it belongs but this is cumbersome and it does not seem that I should have to do this. Is there a solution to my problem?
