Description p_stern 2006-07-25 21:32:09 UTC
I have a document with a large table and various styles including many with
bullets. MS Word was hopelessly slow when adding new bullet points so I turned
to OpenOffice which was great... until 2.0.3 when it is now as slow as MS Word.

The (unscrambled) document has also started to take a very long time to load
sometimes (3 or 4 minutes), which I can't help feeling is related.  

I have now reverted to OOo 2.0.2 at work and everything is fine again, for both
creating new bullet paras and load time.

I have an example document but can't see how to attach it here.  In this
document I have created new 'Notes Bullet' etc styles (all in Custom Styles) and
renamed the old 'Notes Bullet' to 'Z Notes Bullet' etc to get around the
problem.  To see the pronlem, if you press <enter> at the end of the last line
in the last row in the third column to create another 'Z Notes Bullet' paragraph
it takes 3 or 4 seconds for the paragraph to be created on a reasonably fast PC.
 In other places in the table (or on a slower PC of course) it can take even
longer.  In contrast, creating a new 'Notes Bullet' paragraph rather than 'Z
Notes Bullet' is instantaneous because 'Notes Bullet' is only used a couple of
dozen times.

MRU->OD: the documents contains one large table, where many cells are filled
with bullet lists. One of the lists is also very large, because it is created
via list style "Z Standard Bullet" (click into last paragraph of table to see
When entering text there and inserting a paragraph break, one will notice that
it lasts some seconds until the new paragraph is "accessable". This was not the
case in OO 2.0.2.
Comment 3 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2006-08-02 09:28:42 UTC
Investigation reveals that there is a performance problem on validating the
paragraphs belonging to a certain bullet or numbering list, if the list has
continous numbering.

Workaround for your certain document, because you are using only bullet lists:
Switch off the continuous numbering in <Numbering and Bullet> dialog.
