Anyone finding LibreOffice slow on OSX?

I'm using LibreOffice Version: 5.0.1.2 on a late 2011 Macbook Pro with OSX version 10.9.5 and 8GB ram.

I have just downloaded LibreOffice and have experimented inserting images in Writer. This causes it to become painfully slow and the cpu load for LibreOffice jumps up to 80%. It is slow to scroll up and down, moving the cursor and typing text. Seems OK before adding images although not as responsive as OpenOffice. This is a shame because the way OpenOffice handles inserting and manipulating images is really awful and LibreOffice seems so much better. I don't have the latest OS or 16GB of ram but I would expect the Mac I do have would be adequate - it certainly is for the latest version of OpenOffice. Anyone else experiencing sluggish behaviour using LibreOffice on OSX?
