Description Oliver Brinzing 2011-01-14 14:33:55 UTC
it seems writer acceses custom autotext *.bau files periodically during typing if option: [X] Display remainder of name as suggestion while typing is *activated* (see menu entry "Edit - AutoText...") this causes a lot of network traffic and delays if the *.bau files are stored on a network share with a small bandwith, for example. to monitor this behaviour you can use procmon.exe (sysinternals) and add a filter "Path conatains [path to custom autotext folder]" you will see, the *.bau files are accesed several times during typing, again and again ... an example logfile is attached

Sounds pretty logical: this file is checked for corresponding entries while typing. If it is located on a network drive with slow connection it slows down the program.

@es: i disagree, i would expect every "BlockList.xml" (see inside *.bau file's) is read *once* and not *again* and *again* during typing, scrolling text, switching to page preview ... imho it seems, the entries are not cached at all ...

@OS: Please have a look.
