Problem: CPU spins when saving odt files that link to images that have large dimensions (not necessarily large storage size).


I've made a few images whose widths and heights are very large, but whose storage size is small. They are linked below. If anyone wants to try to reproduce my problem:

  • download one of the images listed below
  • open a new writer doc
  • tools menu>options>writer>view>turn off display of images.
  • insert the image by link (I've been doing this with ctrl-shift-drag)
  • in the document, copy and paste the linked pic multiple times.
  • Try to save the file. Let me know if there's an image large enough, copied enough times, that sets your cpu spinning when you try to save.

I'd like to note that this theme is already discussed on Probably LibreOffice reacts in another way as OpenOffice?
