Description cekilch 2012-03-22 05:11:09 UTC
Problem description: 

writer becomes more and more unresponsive when working on large documents (appr. more than 300 pages) – characters appear with several seconds delay after typing – sometimes the whole program seems to freeze – menubar is not usable if you want to click the appropriate icon to e.g. save the document

after several seconds waiting program is back to normal before problems start afresh (& make writer unusable)
- doesn't matter if the affected document is doc or odt.

I have experienced similar problems
Comment 2 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-03-29 23:55:36 UTC
NOT reproducible with "LibreOffice German UI/Locale [Build-ID: dc9775d-05ecbee-0851ad3-1586698-727bf66] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) and attached sample.odt (> 800 pages).

This is not a valid bug report.

We need a sample document. If it's confidential, please send to me by mail.

- affected systems: ubuntu 11.10 32bit, winXP 32bit (both on a desktop machine) linux mint 11 64 bit (a HP laptop) - always when working with LO (there were no problems at all with LO 3.4 or 3.3 handling the very same documents)
unresponsiveness always accompanied by high CPU usage; problem arises sometimes after a little while (one, two minutes of typing).
- type of documents: a great variety; sometimes odts converted from doc, sometimes odts generated with former Openoffice-versions 

- sample document sent to LibreOffice@bielefeldundbuss.de

problems still exist in LO 3.5.2 (tested on Ubuntu 10.10 i386 with "native" LO-deb-packages) making Writer unusable for me (changed therefore to OOo 3.3, running fast & reliable - sorry to say so but that's the way things are).

Seems to me that Bug 48011 - https://www.libreoffice.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=48011 - describes the same symptoms as this bug report!

Please do not use https://www.libreoffice.org/bugzilla/*, use https://bugs.freedesktop.org/* URLs instead..

Closing this one due to Comment 5

Please feel free to reopen this bug if you find out that the problem still exists with the current stable LibreOffice version and if you find evidence that we have an independent issue here
