Every year I am trying once again, hoping that new versions of LibreOffice or of Ubuntu will allow me to write documents in Hebrew, but it’s always the same: once I have both Hebrew letters and numbers in the same document, LO becomes extremely slow - there is a delay of about 1-2 second between every character, which makes it unusable.
What really perplexes me is that I did not find any bug reports regarding this, even though this has been this way for as long as I remember (since LO supprts Hebrew, I think), and I tried many versions of LibreOffice and many versions of Ubuntu or Ubuntu-mate. I tried various suggestions regarding slowishness of LO in general, but none helped. I also tried turning off all grammar/spelling corrections, to no avail.
Adding numbers to the documents is important - I can write a long document in Hebrew with no problem, but if I only write “שלום 777” from that point onward everything becomes super slow. And I am working on an i9-10885H laptop…
This is really frustrating because it forces me to always have a windows machine with MS office at home, for my childrens’ projects and so on. Did anyone else encounter this? Do any of you manage to write Hebrew+numbers on Linux?
