AOO Calc Keyboard Latency

Postby djl47 » Mon Jun 09, 2014 12:00 pm

I noticed tonight that there is extreme keyboard latency and high CPU consumption whenever I am typing in a cell that already has a fair amount of text. I didn't notice this until this evening but don't remember if I attempted to revise any such cells before today. The latency is on the order of seconds per keystroke and renders Calc unusable. I pasted the text into Write and there was no latency. I pasted the text into a cell of an empty spreadsheet and there was no latency. Has anyone else seen such behavior?

Approx number of characters in the cell?
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.7 on Xubuntu 18.04.3 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP

My first thought is that this is not a new problem.

I haven't done any tests, but I have tried to work with sheets containing long text strings (think of a good sized book with each paragraph in a cell) and I remember working with it was very slow and unpleasant.

Aproximately 1700 bytes. I have never seen this issue in the Windows version. And yes, I have a a spreadsheet that resembles a book with modest paragraph in each cell.
