When select: Format, Page within Writer and Calc; it takes from 30 to 33 seconds to load the dialog box.  It used to take 15 to 20 seconds; now is taking longer.  I have deleted the profile multiple times; used to work faster for a few times of opening LO; but then back to waiting 20 to 30 seconds.  I have deleted the registry modifications file numerous times; works for a bit, then back to slow opening of page format dialog box.  I have uninstalled LO numerous times; run CCleaner and Eusing cleaners, rebooted, reinstalled; but the lag time in opening the Format, Page dialog box still happens.  I tried portable LO, but I had same issue.  No improvement.  This bug goes back to the 3.x versions, but it has become worse over time.

My OS is: Windows XP SP3, AMD 6000+ dual core 3GHZ pc, 4GB RAM, Avast AV, KeyScrambler, Comodo Firewall & HIPS, lots of Hard Drive space; also have WizMouse, Networx, & SystemExplorer in system tray.  I do not have MS Office.

I also have a Linux Mint 17.3 partition with LO and the Format, Page function works just fine; opens up right away.  I do have to keep the Win XP, otherwise, I would not bother; Linux works great.  Thank you for your assistance and the great work you do.

Unconfirmed with v5.1.2.1 under windows 10 x64.
Unconfirmed with v4.4.7.2 under windows 7 x64.

Format > Page opens the window < 1 second.

It is a bit laggy, a couple of seconds, BUT only for the first time. Maybe related to bug 98135

Hi Miguel,

I'm also unable to reproduce this on on XP, 7 or 8.1. Please look through what is running on your system to see what could be causing this issue for you.
