In general Impress is a laggy part of the suite. Where it becomes almost unusable is when a populated table is edited. The typing lags so much I exceed the pace the program showing letters and words. I have tried every setting I can possibly think of (Hardware acceleration, Open GL, Memory settings, Experimental features, Java, a fresh user profile et cetera).
I hope this is not considdered normal. Ever since version 5, Impress is laggy and It seems to become worse with every release.
In Writer, working with tables is painless. So why is it so terrible in Impress?
Steps to Reproduce:
1.After opening the attached Impress file, start typing text in the table.

Is this Windows-only? I don't see a problem even in 6.0.3. If so, I am unable to test Noel's patch as I don't have a Win build env set up.
Noel Grandin committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#113643 Editing tables in Impress lags terribly
It will be available in 6.1.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
In Windows I am able to repro with 6.0.3, but 6.1 alpha1 does not have the terrible lag

typing lag is a bit less in this version. However working with tables (selecting text, putting the cursor to type, selecting another cell than the current, etc.) is extremely laggy.
Try the attached file.

Nope, try with 6.1.3.
Running 188.8.131.52 and the improvement is impressive! Lag is as good as gone. Guess I'll be using the fresh branche now. Thanks a lot.
