Trying to load the attached DOCX results in a hang. I force-quit after 20 minutes. The DOCX was created in MS Word (2013 I think), and is about 450 pages, thousands of footnotes, but no graphics AFAIK.
I am using the latest package provided by snap. LibreOffice 188.8.131.52. Ubuntu 18.04.
Olivier Tilloy from Canonical confirmed the bug and added:
"I can observe the issue in an up-to-date bionic amd64 VM. Opening the attached document and rendering it completely took 32 minutes. This is an insane amount of time to load a 516 pages document (153316 words, 927209 characters), but it eventually completed and once done the document can be navigated and edited just fine, as far as I can tell."
"Note that I also tested libreoffice 6.0.6 that's installed by default in Ubuntu 18.04 (the deb packages, not the snap), and it took over 20 minutes to load the same document, so it's not a snap-specific problem."
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the attached DOCX file.
2. Observe time passing.
3. Observe more time passing. :)
as described above, it took literally half an hour of 100% CPU effort to open.
I expect it to open in under 30 seconds.
