Description AlbertJB 2012-06-28 12:54:48 UTC
Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a larg document, say 4 MB, 1000 pages
2. Unworkable

Current behavior:

It's so slow that practically is unworkable, while opening the same .odt with MS Office 2010 the document opens as quick as a wink, and you can edit and work with normally.

Expected behavior:

Be able to normally edit your document

The *loading* or the *editing* is slow ? 

If its the editing, *and* the OS is Linux *and* the fonts used in the document don't exist, this may be a duplicate of bug #47636. If it is then that theory can be tested by ctrl+a and changing the font to one that is installed. If that makes it fast again this will be fixed in 3.5.5.

OK, I think I've got it. It's when opening a .odt file which is located at a NTFS partition in Ubuntu. I've moved it to /home (ext4 filesystem) and works fine. Sorry for all the trouble :(

Marking as NOTOURBUG, it very well could be an issue with NTFS utils if you're having a problem on your NTFS drive. Thanks for the update
