I'm typing my notes in class today and everytime I hit alt+i+o+f (insert formula) is takes > 30 seconds to open the formula box at the bottom. With 2.2.1 and earlier this was <3 seconds. Any ideas? I just upgraded to 2.3 yesterday. I'm running Windows XP on my laptop, nothing else running, and everything else responds quickly.

Quite difficult to investigate. Opens in less than 3 seconds also on XP 2.26 GHz, 256 RAM.

Maybe this is a more general question, but when I downloaded OOo, I didn't download it with the JRE because I already have the latest one on my machine. OOo should automatically use the latest Java, correct? That wouldn't be slowing me down would it?

I have the same experience, my document with 100+ formulas makes the v 2.3 Writer freeze or give a very slow response. The 2.2.1 version works OK. (Windows XP)

Is the Java version set in the Tools>Options>OOo>Java configuration pane ?

2.3 is behaving normally for me under that scenario. The formula window is up in just a second or two. I'm running Fedora Linux.

I don't think Java has any part in the formula editing--but who knows?

Try MathType.

I'm experiencing the same problem on Win32 XP SP2. Enabling or disabling JRE doesn't seam to change something.

Any ideas?

XP Pro SP2 on an AMD64 3200 with 2GB of RAM, and I can't even count to 1 before alt-i-o-f brings up the formula box for me in 2.3

I believe this refers to an empty document. I'm using Intel Core 2 Duo Centrino (T7200 - laptop) with 2GB of RAM. Indeed, the formula box opens in a second in empty document. In a 10 page document with around 20 formulas and 11 figures it takes 10 to 30 seconds to open formula box. This didn't happen in OOo 2.2.1.

Do the developers know this? Is this a tradeoff or a bug? Because It's important for me. I have LOTS of notes with 100+ formulas and I'm going to start my dissertation soon, which is guaranteed to have 100+. Anyone know the process from here?

Ok, I see it now as well. A Writer document with lots of formulas is very slow to load (open) and very slow to open the Math editor, compared to 2.2.1.

Definitely should be reported.

There's a good test document attached to Issue 72777: math_cheatsheet.odt is a 2-page document with ~120 formulas. With that document loaded, OOo 2.3 takes about 8 s to get a new formula editing window, where 2.2.1 takes <1s.

I experience the same problem after the upgrade form OO 2.2 to OO 2.3. The formula editor expend a lot of time to open when I try to edit a formula. Either, all the Writer is very slowly, in a text with many formulas and objects. This didn't happen yesterday when I was typing in the OO 2.2. I tried to change the parameters in Tools - Option - Memory, but was effectless. I'm using a XP Home SP2 on a Athlon64 3200+ 2 GB Ram

Some help, to solve the case?

Cirilo.

As you can see, it seems to be a bug linked to this last version.

Either you downgrade to 2.2.1 or you file the bug report, vote for it and wait for its resolution.
