Description mikael_lyngvig 2005-08-17 03:08:37 UTC
Hi, I've got a huge 700 page document (that I cannot give you). When copying and pasting a single sentence into it, OO Writer is very slow. The paste operation completes immediately, but then OO Writer becomes "hangy" for a while, then editing can continue. It is as if a background check is started after the paste, which then makes OO Writer very annoyingly non-reacting for about 15 seconds after which OO Writer then again runs perfectly smoothly. This may be due to AutoCorrect being run on the entire document, whenever something is pasted, rather than just the text pasted into the document. It has been my experience that pasting into an OO Writer document gets slower and slower the larger the document gets. Couldn't you somehow limit the part of the document that needs to be rescanned? Perhaps the current page, perhaps the last chapter (there's no chapters in my document, which is simply my diary, so that wouldn't help me). Apart from this "lagginess" on paste operations, OO Writer works really well with large documents. Sincerely, Mikael Lyngvig

Problem is, that the document needs to be reformatted when text is inserted. It needs to be checked if there are new/moed page breaks, objects and so on. Maybe to offer a possibility to reduce the process on an area around the visible view could be a good thing for such complex ocuments.

It has been a while since I submitted this report. In the meantime I have switched to a much faster computer (Athlon 4800+ 64 X2) and don't seem to have the problem here. I think the idea of adding an option to limit processing to a particular area is not that good; someday there could be hundreds of odd options added to compensate for this or that odd behavior on this or that odd machine. As far as I am concerned, this issue can be closed again.
