Description Darren Thiessen 2014-11-10 21:07:32 UTC
When working with ODG files the document seems to sit and refresh for several minutes before any editing can be done. Eventually the issue does got away but sometimes I have to wait for a LONG time. While the issues is present I can select and edit objects for a split second but then the focus is changed and I am kicked out of the editing mode. See the following screencast for an example:


This has got to be the most annoying bug I've ever encountered in LibreOffice. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The bug is not reproducible all the time but does happen quite frequently. I have noticed it since at least version 4.2. Haven't tested it on any other platforms other than Windows 7.

Screencast is unreadable. Wants me to install some random plugin which only exists for Windows and Mac (I think not).

Does the problem appear with any ODG file, or just a certain one ? If it is a certain one, then please provide a copy of the file so we can test.

Does the ODG contain anything special, like embedded objects other than simple graphics ? - e.g. animated Gifs were known to cause a problem at one stage.

Setting to NEEDINFO pending requested information and test file.

Please set back to UNCONFIRMED once you have provided the requested information.

Please also test with a more recent version of LibreOffice and report back as to whether the problem is still present.
