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 ...
