docx document with a large table
I attached a docx document (created with Word 2003) which consists of one large table with some random text data of a few hundred sides. If tried to open this document with LibreOffice writer, writer runs indefinitely with 100% CPU. The same document saved as doc does open, still it needs some minutes to open.
Confirm with attached document, cot able to test with doc because Word 2010 crashes. Tested on Windows + Ubuntu with master
*** Bug 76200 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I think this is "inherited".
Reproduced with LO 4.2.8 and 4.3.5 but behavior changed starting from LO 4.4.0: Writer doesn't hang but opens the DOCX file very slowly (takes 2 minutes for 321 pages). Working with this file is also slow.
I suggest this be renamed to "FILEOPEN: Writer extremely slow to open and handle specific DOCX".
The original failure to open the file at all was fixed - if there's a remaining issue with performance then that's a separate bug.
(Opening the file I get the following results:
- Mac Word 2011: 0:35s
- LO 188.8.131.52: 1:45s
Which is different, but not an order of magnitude different.)
On the basis that the original issue was solved, closing this bug.
