Description Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2013-04-06 07:25:59 UTC
Steps how to reproduce [Reproducible] with server installation of "LibO rc   -  German UI / German Locale  [Build ID: 4c82dcdd6efcd48b1d8bba66bfe1989deee49c3)]"  {tinderbox: @6, pull time  2013-03-26 12:00(?)} on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) with newly created own user profile

1. open attachment 77509 [details] of Bug 63064
2. Click behind text line "In screenshot you see ..."
3. Type always the same leter every 1/2 second
   slide a finger over key board typing "asdfghjklöä"
   Expected: characters appear without delay
   Actual: approximately 1/10 s delay for every character

That's not a real slow down for working, but it feels somehow insane / uncomfy and so causes typos.

I created the document without many actions as sample document for a.m. bug, but I am not able to create a similar one showing the same effect. Strange!

Same document works fine with
Comment 1 A (Andy) 2013-04-06 08:30:09 UTC
reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit)

There seemed to be a delay, but a very small one and not only behind the mentioned text paragraph, but anywhere in the document.  Due to this it is a little bit inconvenient as mentioned by Rainer.
Comment 2 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2013-04-06 09:07:35 UTC
The delay disappears for me when I delete the picture (GDI Metafile).

I now am able to create a sample from the scratch:

1. Open new Writer Document from LibO Start Center
2. Type a text line, >Enter> at the end
   > no delay
3. Open attached "sample.odg"
4. In "sample.odg" <control+a> to select all
5. <control+c> for 'Copy'
5. Switch to Writer Document
6. 'Long click on Paste-Icon -> Paste as GDI Metafile'
    > Will be inserted
7. Click at end  of text line and type again
   Bug: delay as reported.

Additional info:
Effect does not appear if I copy only the screenshot or only the cursor picture from "sample.odg".
2 Simileys pasted together as GDI also do not cause a delay
Delay also appears if I only copy the screenshot and paste as Draw 8

Thank you for confirming. I also see other delays typing anywhere in the document.

And the problem seems to be limited to Writer, same Draw 8 in Calc does not cause the delay.

Can't reproduce on Linux, interestingly.

No delay with attachment 77509 [details], setting to WFM. Feel free to retest and set to NEW, if you still see it.
