Description Martin Srebotnjak 2017-05-03 08:47:17 UTC
On macOS, noticed since version 5.2.x (may be even on 5.1 series) Writer, having an open document, freezes for a certain longer period (OS is responsive, except for LibreOffice) which might last even for a minute, then resumes as if nothing happened.

I use to have several documents open, but I do not know if that is in any way connected with the problem.

I cannot reproduce this constantly but it happens on two systems I have access to (with 10.12, but even on previous OS versions', like 10.11), an Air and MacBook.

Maybe better description would be: becomes unresponsive?
Comment 2 Alex Thurgood 2017-05-03 13:49:34 UTC
Yes, this is a known bug when several documents are open simultaneously in LibreOffice and/or in hidden window state.
