Continually, when I am using Writer, regardless of what I am writing, the document freezes and I can't move the cursor either with mouse or arrow keys and can't type. Usually I can free it by clicking on the Save icon. But even then, although the cursor is freed up, it is in the wrong place and knocks out some characters in a different line from the one I'm typing in. It happens with whatever I'm typing.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.typing, adding some text

I don't have OSX 10.10 to test with, but there are similar performance problems on OSX 10.12
I can confirm this on my MBPRo2013 (core i7) with 16Gb RAM

Maybe the description is too vague, but the end result is: in OSX editing more than one document in Writer (or perhaps generally in LO) is futile - the app freezes for a certain time.
So this makes LO almost an useless office suite. Shouldn't this be a blocker for macOS releases?
Do (any of) you have Java enabled? Any extensions?

So with the issue is already there - at the full extend - with two documents and only typing? I'm aware of spontaneous hangs (bug 103126, 103571) related to multiple open documents, but there needs to be some contextual change and the hang is dependent of the amount of documents open.
Some contextual changes:
*Disappearing reappearing of the dock (Auto-Hide mode)
*Waking from sleep
*Making the font color toolbar float (not available in 5.3/5.4)
*Minimising or restoring one or more LibreOffice documents to or from the dock
Is this still reproducible?

Setting to: NEEDINFO
It is still reproducible on 126.96.36.199 on a Mac.

A sample file or some additional info would be nice. The description is really too vague. I'm not experiencing any slowness.
Do (any of) you have Java enabled? Any extensions? (See Comment 5)
