I have LibreOffice version 5.2 (see below for exact system specs) on a Macbook laptop. Generally I am happy with this software, but from time to time it would lock up, busy, unresponsive for a reason I don’t understand. I also couldn’t pinpoint certain action that triggers this behavior. I mainly refer to Writer, but it might also happen with other LibreOffice applications. The “top” command shows nearly 100% CPU utilization when this happens. Usually it will resolve, but it can take many seconds before it quits the unresponsive phase. Has anyone experienced this with the MacOS X version described below? The hardware has 8GB RAM and 5th generation (Broadwell) Intel i5 CPU, so it should be adequate for this job, even with web browser and a few other applications open.
My typical usage pattern is: I open 5-10 documents at the same time, mostly writer docs saved in ODT format. These are smallish documents (<100 kB each).
