Description minhsien0330 2012-04-07 06:20:35 UTC
Problem description: 
When saving "big" file, the saving time is long, maybe last for 5 or more seconds. During the long saving time, I can  do nothing but waiting. I think this is wasting time. So I hope Libreoffice could allow "typing while saving".

Note:
I do not mean "Saving while typing". I do mean that while Libreoffice is saving a file, it provides a buffer to gather what I type, and this buffer will write into the open document file when next time I press Ctrl+S.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create an new odt file.
2. Paste many many pictures, the more the better.
3. Press Ctrl+S to save the file, you would see Libreoffice take lots of time to save, but what you can do is "just wait".

Current behavior:
During the saving time, I can do nothing.

Expected behavior:
While saving file, Libreoffice provide a buffer to allow typing.

Example file

This more specific related to bug 106208

1. Open the attached file (password: p)
2. Press CTRL+S
3. Type 1234567890 immediately after CTRL+S.. something like "1234" will go missing 4567890 will show up after saving finished 

Example is effective as long as bug 105844 is around..
