Problem description:
Important: This bug concerns only the Linux version of LibreOffice. No problem with the Windows version.
I try to open and edit this math document including grids created with Sinequanon software
It's very slow to open, the PC freezes, mainly when scrolling, the cpu is near 100%. It's impossible to edit this document.
When removing the grids, the bug disappears.
Sinequanon software is here:
Debian Squeeze and Wheezy

Core I7 Sandybridge 8Go Ram

I described the bug there. It was reproduced by several people
Comment 2 tester8 2012-01-26 13:30:44 UTC
Reproduced with

LOdev 3.5.0rc1
Ubuntu 10.04.3 x86
Linux 2.6.32-37-generic Russian UI
Comment 3 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2012-12-16 08:06:42 UTC
I think the problem is the anti-aliasing for the graphics, mainly the grids which are strangely made.
To workaround: menu Tools > Options > LibreOffice > View > uncheck Use Anti-Aliasing (under Graphics Output).

Tested with Version (Build ID: 789ec89fceb949eee482ecb7731a3d7b1ac0660)

I do not have a MS-Windows version at hand to check if Anti-Aliasing for graphics output is enabled.

Comment 5 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2015-01-07 05:49:45 UTC
Nothing really changed: scrolling is smoother if antialiasing is disabled for graphics as stated in comment #3.
Tested with LibreOffice built at home under Ubuntu 14.10.

Nothing really changed.
If I am not wrong the grids are WMF images, that is a format which is not intended to be interoperable.

No problem anymore with LO 5.4 and current master. I tried with and without OpenGL enabled.

@Madeiros: please could you try again with your current LO version?
