So I am having a problem with LibreOffice 7.3 crashing like clockwork as soon as any file size goes over 150 kb, it starts going downhill. At 200kb, it begins to stall out every few seconds. At around 250-300kb, it can’t open it anymore. This occurs regardless of file format or hardware, and I have completely exhausted all of the pre-existing solutions such as memory or settings adjustments such as Smooth scrolling, Hardware Acceleration, etc.
System is a quad core i5 processor with 16gb of ram, Ubuntu Mate 18.04 on a SSD. Same problem occurred with LO 6 too. That is in addition to simple cut/paste commands taking 50-60 seconds each.
The exact same issue occurs on my laptop in Openoffice 3.5, Ubuntu 10.04, 4gb ram, regular HDD. For comparison, the same file has no issues being opened 15 years ago in MS Office in WinXP with 512mb of ram.
So what’s the major malfunction?
