By default openoffice(libreoffice?) is using max 20 Mb RAM, which is not enough today. Default settings need to change, st. most computer have 1Gb+ RAM today. If you set it 256 Mb, it quite fast.
*But why is this limited to 256 only?* Sometimes I need much more when working with my school projects. Why not but the limit to 1Gb?
That is an interesting fact. I agree that it doesn't make sense to have a fixed low value. If the goal is to be conservative, then it should be a low PERCENTAGE of the system RAM... Unfortunately that doesn't fix this particular problem. It is a parsing limitation. It depends on the CPU not on RAM (or at least RAM is not the limiting factor either with 20 or 256Mb) -- View this message in context: http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/Why-is-LO-OOo-so-slow-loading-a-spreadsheet-tp2006665p2026487.html Sent from the Discuss mailing list archive at Nabble.com. -- Unsubscribe instructions: E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org Archive: http://www.documentfoundation.org/lists/discuss/ *** All posts to this list are publicly archived for eternity ***
