Improvement Suggestions for LibreOffice Writer AutoCorrect Function Word Completion and Quick Starter.

Steps to Reproduce:
Dear LibreOffice Team

I would like to suggest a few suggestions for the LibreOffice Writer, which I would be very happy if you could fulfill them in the upcoming release.

Proposal number 1 is a revision of the "AutoCorrect Function Word Completion", which stores words that are longer than six letters and adds them as needed. Example: "LibreOffice", the word has more than six letters, which is why the word completion remembers the word and saves it for a new need. The second time you need to write only "Libr" and the word extension proposes "LibreOffice" before and pressing the Enter key is "LibreOffice" in the text.

I come now to my suggestion, because the word supplement also remembers words that occur only once in the text, so that words that occur more often in the text and much more typed are not even suggested first, which I think is a pity because I have this Use the function daily. The word supplement needs to be further developed so that it remembers words that occur more often in the text than once and then never again. In addition, the word completion remembers spelling mistakes or typos, such as "Sie geht heute nach Hause. Er geht nach Hause." If you hit "Zuhause" now, the word "Zuhause." Suggests what's no advantage, because it's grammatically wrong, as well also words with numbers are wrong. For example, one wanted to write "verlassen" but instead one accidentally "verliert" remembering the word completion, even though it is completely wrong, and yet the wrong word is always suggested first.

I offer that the word completion be reprogrammed, that the word completion will not remember any words with dots, hyphens, typos and spelling errors, because nobody needs words like "Zuhause .", "Auto" Cellar, example. Verlie0en, gro0 "Der Bindestrich sollte auch beim Wortzusatz ignoriert werden, wenn die Wörter dort enden, denn Wörter wie" sick, police and fire trucks "are abbreviations in the German language because they would not have to write out and rather become themselves That's why I ask that the word supplement no longer suggests this in the future.

That was my first suggestion.

Proposal number 2 is a memory issue when a document is closed. LibreOffice has the function that it starts with the start of the PC, which I like very much, which makes my documents load faster, but when I close my document, it stays in memory forever, which is very annoying because My documents consume 2.6 GB of RAM, which I can only recover if the Task Manager completely exits LibreOffice, which also stops LibreOffice's quick-start and thus loses its advantage. I ask that when closing a document, the RAM released back to the system without me even have to finish the task.

That was my second suggestion.

Proposal number 3 is about the performance of LibreOffice Writer. I write documents that have over 600 thousand words and are over 700 pages long, which causes the writer to lose performance and no longer run smoothly, even sometimes threatening to crash if I try to find spelling mistakes with the spell checker, which takes ten to fifteen minutes Because of the size of the document, even though I have a power PC and the CPU gets bored, LibreOffice is not usable at all during the spellchecker, which prevents me from reading or editing another document.

The performance has to be improved somehow, so this does not happen. It is very annoying when LibreOffice crashes during the process, because the spell checker does not follow and you have to start over again because it could not be saved.

That was my third suggestion. 

I come now to two requests, which I would be happy if they appear in the upcoming version, the first is the request that there is a function, which LibreOffice stops remembering the last open documents, which I personally do not want because I share my PC and therefore everyone can see what I've been working on recently.

My last request is the table function in the Writer, which defaults to the English language, although LibreOffice was installed in German, which means I always have to change the language to German by hand, so that spelling errors in the German language are checked and not the English, which is not comfortable.

Thank you for your attention and look forward to the upcoming releases of LibreOffice.

Yours sincerely, J. Schulte

Hi, thanks for the suggestions. However, we ascribe to a one issue one ticket practice. Please split these into single issues as this bug is not actionable as is.
