Table handling in Impress has always been a nightmare but it has now become simply unbearable. I attach an example. Try to play with the table: select row or column, try to change the width, to optimize the character positions... Impress stops responding.
LO 126.96.36.199 64bit under Win10 fully updated.
Steps to Reproduce:
Just try to modify the table
Impress stops responding or becomes extremely slow
Handle tables correctly.
User Profile Reset: No
OpenGL disabled. No difference if I enable it. Checked on four different computers.

I don't reproduce a "not responding"; however I do notice bad performance
Steps to reproduce
1. Open the attached file
2. Place the cursor in A1`
4. Hold arrow left (and monitor CPU usage)
Also observing blinking text
1. Place the cursor in the textbox containing: 4, 4, 422, 42m, 4/m, 4mm, 4/mmm
2. Left click to the right below AP (text is disappearing for a second & high CPU usage

Backtrace from Linux LO 6.4+
Mark Hung committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#120216 improve svx table performance.
It will be available in 7.0.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
https://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.
Mark, is this bug fixed after your patch? If yes, then please change it status, thanks.
I still have dump on fileopen in 7.0+ (with procdump in Windows).
But I don't confirm "Impress stops responding", it's just up to 15% CPU.
So Massimo and Telesto need to test again, best with LO master.
Just tested again with 18.104.22.168. LO doesn't stop responding but the handling of this table is extremely painful. Try to resize the width of a column, you will see...

What I really did is to make entering editing mode faster. ( I measure time between clicking a cell and cursor starting to blink. ) If that didn't help or it's not the original issue then it does need more fix.

Massimo, it was fix only in current master (future 7.0), can you test the problem in it?

Apologies for my ignorance, but can I install 7.0 alpha (?), for testing, on my job-dedicated PC while keeping 184.108.40.206 for my work? Do I need to use a different machine? I'm a bit scared of getting something screwed up... Thank you for your understanding.
Yes, get Windows from https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/current.html, it's a separate installation that doesn't register extensions and can be removed.
It can even be unpacked with SI-GUI, but it would take time to set up.

Sorry for the late reply, a lot happened since your message, as you know. Anyway, I have installed 7.0 alpha and tried the test table with this version. I can confirm that the situation is definitely improved. I can edit the column width without Impress hanging or getting too slow.
I look forward to the release of this version!
Let's set to fixed per Mark's fix. Thanks!
