Single page and only text included doc file's conversation take about 60 seconds. Any idea how to make this export faster ?

export HOME=/tmp && libreoffice --headless --invisible --convert-to pdf:writer_pdf_Export --outdir /20150109/20150109/166957/09012015101903.doc

To address one of the prevalent issues, here... Since LO 5, I have invariably had trouble with dragging and dropping multi-lines of text within the same document - it would just hang before reaching the target. Today, I discovered that doing this makes it function perfectly again: go to

Tools > Options > Libreoffice Writer > View and uncheck 'smooth scroll'

It fixes that issue entirely. For the first time in three years, drag & drop works correctly; and I believe the scrolling is now 'smoother' as well.
