Description joerg.kubitz@gmx.de 2018-03-24 10:36:45 UTC
Redrawing all the context dependend UI Elements takes up to 2 seconds on a high end computer. The processur is almost idle during that time. i.e. The drawing could be much faster if the CPU would not sleep so much during handling the redrawing.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.open new impress document
2.Insert a Text field. 
3.Deselect Text field
4.Select Text field

Actual Results:  
Clicking inside the textfield immediately puts the cursor inside. Approximatly 1 second later the the UI starts redrawing asynchronous all toolbars, propertie pages, the ruler... It feels like a fast Video is playing redrawing all Symbols one by one. Some Elements are even redrawn multiple times (as if multiple properties of it changed)causing flickering. 

Expected Results:
Immediatly redrawing all context dependend UI elements. Single click => single redraw (i.e. dont redraw before all properties updated to final state)

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

Additional Info:
Also happens in V

Does this also happen with the sidebar disabled? View -> Sidebar (bug 105500)
Comment 3 joerg.kubitz@gmx.de 2018-03-24 11:58:45 UTC
less to redraw then but yes.. for example the rulers updates several times once for changing the size once for tab stops once for sides of the selected object once for redrawing numbers...

Does the same happen with a fresh master build: https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/Win-x86_64@42/current/
It installs separately.
Comment 7 joerg.kubitz@gmx.de 2018-03-28 18:42:39 UTC
i did a fresh build of master on my own and it also happens there.
Comment 8 Buovjaga 2018-03-29 13:28:59 UTC
Ok, I can reproduce.

So switching selection between title and content box is enough (not inside the input). Have Area, Shadow and/or Line expanded in the sidebar and observe them while switching.

Dear joerg.kubitz@gmx.de,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
