I’ve been using LibreOffice (now 184.108.40.206) for several years on Linux (now Debian 10), and I often sort some small tables (typically 50 lines, 15columns), an operation that has always been immediate (a fraction of second).
Since some months, it takes some ten seconds if I use “Tri Croissant”(sort ascending) in the “Données” (Data) menu, or the “Trier…” (sort) dialog box from the same menu. Furthermore, If I use the sort option from the column-header menu in autofilter mode, it takes 20 or 30 seconds during which my computer is totally blocked, I cannot even select another window (but the cursor still follows the mouse).
How can it be explained (last update of LibreOffice?) and corrected?
Details on my config (from LibreOffice Help/Apropos):
