Description Regina Henschel 2012-04-22 13:18:01 UTC
Open Draw and draw a rectangle or a text box.
Switch to edit mode (double-click or F2)
Write some text including line breaks.
Move forwards and backwards in the text using mouse and keyboard.
Watch the position info in the status bar.

While writing text the position information is updated only with large delay.
When moving with the cursor keys, the position is updated only with very large delay or not at all.

The position is updated, when you move the mouse.

The problem is inherited from OOo, where I see it already in version 2.4.3.

I only can confirm the behavior (with master~2012-04-17 on Linux/x86), but no idea whom to assign this bug or how important it is.
Comment 2 A (Andy) 2014-10-11 15:58:02 UTC
Reproducible with LO (Win 8.1)

Comment 4 Nino 2015-10-15 06:58:01 UTC
Keyboard triggered position status refresh is still buggy (extremly slow) in LO 502/Linux/RPM/de/OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=none, though mouse movements seem to be reflected much quicker (if the text is not too long).

The error is still there in Version: (x64)

Update is totally missing, when you first time write text. If you leave the shape and enter edit mode again, the Paragraph/Row/Column information is updated, but still with a large delay.
