Freezed Writer during image-loading
I have a document with over 400 images and +1200 pages. All images are linked to the document. When scrolling through the document, the images are loaded. This works for most images. When 2 or 3 images are on the same page, the Writer starts loading Image 1, then 2, then 3, but shows "read-error" on image 1 and restarts this loop. I have attached a screenshot where 3 pictures are visible (2 pictures are at the top of the page - you can just see the first pixels - and are just scrolling in). This causes the loop. The Writer takes forever to load them.
Sometimes, the Writer gets it right and after 2 or 3 minutes, the Writer unfreezes and shows the pictures. When I scroll the document one line, the loop restarts.
When I write in my document, the Writer occasionally freezes when I get to a new page. I suppose this could be related with the image-read-error.
I have seen some bugs which are similar, but are fixed/resolved.
I have increased memory for the images, but that didn't help. I even tried a fresh install on a better machine, and the problem occurs there too.
OOO Writer 22.214.171.124 on Ubuntu 15.10.
This is going to be very hard to reproduce, if we do not get access to your files.
I confirm the "loading/flickering and freeze" behaviour in documents with linked images in Windows.
It is worse if the image files are bigger.
Using Writer with more than a couple of linked images is now just not possible.
The same behaviour has been reported in Draw (Bug 93212: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=93212).

You mentioned Windows, so I am tempted to ask, is this enabled: Tools - Options - LibO - View - Use OpenGL for all rendering
Which exact LibreOffice version are you using?
(in reply to Beluga, comment #3)
- The option "Use OpenGL for all rendering" is not enabled.
- I am using LO 126.96.36.199 (at work) and LO 188.8.131.52 (at home). It happens in both versions.
All the best,
Ok, setting to NEW as the confirmation seems to match original report.
