I'm setting up a new desktop PC with Windows Pro 10 version 1809 and Libreoffice and it is very laggy. In Calc, it often takes a second or two to move from cell to cell with the cursor. Not all the time, but often. Sometimes clicking on a cell will take more than a second for it to highlight. Writer is much the same, although not as noticeable, but sometimes the cursor just doesn't move for a second or two when you go back to highlight text.

Also a lot of crashes, probably 2-3 times per day.

I'm moving from an older laptop with 6.0.4 which is working really well.

Any ideas of where to start looking for issues.

For now I am going to load 6.0.7 and see if that is better.

I've been finding LO 6.x quite slow to load large documents (+500 pages) on both Win 7 (x86) and Win 10 (x64).

It seems LO 5.x is much faster to load large documents.

It this how a later version is supposed to work ?

Pls accept my newest hard drive, circ. Nov 2019 is about 1/2 used-up w/ 49 folders. Of them,their 2 larger/est files = about 1,400 (.txt; .M/S Werd: vis a vis LO Wizard) pages, and exactly 1,074 pgs (.pdf; x-lated goo/docs) WHEREAS, "normally" I'm not on-line, but when  I am, it's not unusual to have about a bakers dozen opened files {sorta like any other 'research' junky (*sic*) crack whore}.

IN SHORT: Neither said edition/version of VA's VistA medical records on said later machine - like, NEVER - has ever taken more than 3-5 seconds to launch... yet: I remain an ...(more)

I would try to:

  • Re-download the latest version for Windows.
  • Re-boot
  • Install the version that you just downloaded. (32 or 64?)
  • Then try it

It my do nothing, but many times just a reinstall of the software will fix problems.

Good luck,

No problems for me: LibreOffice, Windows 10 Professional on a fairly powerful computer.
