Another instance of the dashed line problems - comment on recent FOSDEM Heise - in German about this despairing about performance of LibreOffice:

wget https://github.com/oliworx/LibreOffice-vs-OpenOffice/raw/master/Kassenbuch_2018.ods

This spreadsheet renders horribly slowly despite being rather trivial. The problem it turns out is the fine dotted line borders used in a few places.

I attach a perf top flamegraph picture - though the load this puts on the X server is also quite significant.

Eike - not a calc problem, but blamed on it [ FYI =]. Armin - I guess another (not so relevant but interesting) symptom of the same dashing problems.

Luboš Luňák committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":


use Skia to do dashed lines, no need to do it manually (tdf#130431)

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

This bug has a patch, but appears as new.
Luboš Luňák, can you change that?...
