Description Robert Kelly 2019-10-11 05:06:05 UTC
I have downloaded Vers of LibreOffice. Whenever I try to run spelling and grammar check it freezes up after a few minutes and I get a message saying the program is not responding. When I try to gou out of it I get a message asking me if I want to search for a solution online, wait for the program to respond or close it, which cause whatever part of the document i am working on which has not been saved to be lost and and document recovery to occur.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open spelling and grammar check.
2. have operating for at least two minutes
3.program fails to respond

Actual Results:
Each time I have done this on ANY document I have chosen to close the program, tried at first to wait. waited twenty minutes with program doing nothing.

Expected Results:
I expect it to suggest corrections for spelling and grammar mistakes WITHOUT failing to respond. I have NOT had any problems with spell check in previous installations of this program.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
Below is copied the program signature.

Robert, we actually have some bug reports about a freeze in spell checking (see bug 128074). Could you please check, if it is perhaps a duplicate of bug 128074. If not, can you give any hints that narrow down the problem?

I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it to RESOLVED DUPLICATE or change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED', if it is not a duplicate.
