I'm using a fresh install of Xubuntu 17.04 which comes bundled with Libreoffice

Whenever I scroll at a reasonably fast pace (such as skipping a page in Writer, or more than 100 lines in one go in Calc), the whole window completely freezes until I stop scrolling, then it redraws. It makes things unusable.

I'm using a Nvidia binary driver version 381.22. I've played with the hardware acceleration settings but nothing makes a difference. I'm using an unusual kernel due to the recent CPU (4.11.0-4-generic #9~lp1671360).

PC specs: AMD Ryzen 1700X processor, Nvidia GTX 1070 graphics card, 16 GB memory.

Any good ideas?

So when you stop scrolling, it correctly redraws the screen where it ends up? I suspect that this is by design, to allow faster scrolling in large documents, without it taking so much time (spent on continuously redrawing the screen). If I'm right it's a trade off situation. You can either have a clunky scrolling, or you can have it jump quickly forward and back. I suspect the designers of LO smartly made it work quickly and this might be th effect you are describing. Faster box might help.

Could it be that screen repainting is slow? Compare to the circumstances I describe here. Are you experiencing anything similar?
