Description tommy27 2014-11-06 05:55:55 UTC
this is an old annoyance I've encountered from OOo era which persists in current LibO releases and master branch (last tested on tonight daily build)

when you are in the process of assigning a macro to a custom toolbar button LibO freezes for 2 seconds.

Tools --> Customize -> Toolbars --> Add --> My Macros 

I notice a transitory freeze of 2 seconds before the "My Macros" will expand.

you can only appreciate this if you have a long list of macros (I have more than 100) and you are on a slow computer (the test has been done on a 5 years old laptop)

it's a minor annoyance I know, but there's probably some sill underlying performance issue to do such a simple action

For me not reproducible with LO, Win 8.1.
Comment 2 Buovjaga 2014-11-16 13:10:55 UTC
Reproduced on a fresh user profile with no macros, actually took 5 secs. Setting severity to trivial, although the delay might cause the user to punch their computer in desperation.

There are a short time, but nothing major. Given that it has been two years that the bug was open, I change the status of the bug to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME.

I confirm it's not slow anymore with LibO
