Description Ben 2016-03-17 19:00:47 UTC
On Windows 10, upon saving a large document (500 pages), the progress bar is shown at the bottom of the screen. However, after the progress bar completes, I see the spinner on the screen for about the same it took the progress bar to complete. Hence, the progress bar is not entirely useful for tracking true progress of the filesave action.

Not reproduced. Spinner does not hang around afterwards.

You can try with the newly attached file. Make a change and save it. You will see that the progress bar initially does not appear, then it appears and completes, and finally it takes a while before you can edit again. If you click in the editor window during the last phase you will see the spinner.

Ok, I don't see the spinner, but the menu and buttons stay greyed out for a long time.

@Meeks: Any thoughts on what is needed to track down the issue? backtrace, valgrind, etc.
Comment 7 Michael Meeks 2017-05-26 21:26:27 UTC
Oh - sure =) it's pretty easy I think; just wait until the period when there is no progress bar updating, stop the app in the debugger and see what the stack frames look like =) it is exactly those stack frames that are not doing the right thing. Resume execution for a second, pause and take another stack trace etc. Thanks!

First trace

This is done after breaking in Windbg right after the progress bar has completed. Output from
~* kp
!analyze -v -f

Second trace

This is done after breaking in Windbg after waiting for a few seconds since resuming. Output from
~* kp
!analyze -v -f

Resuming again after this pretty much lead to the interface being responsive gain, so no third trace.

Dear Ben,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
