Hi again,

LibreOffice 3.5.0 is unusably slow for me on my laptop, which is running 
OS X 10.6.8, with *considerable* delays between a keypress and the character
actually showing up on the screen.  (Admittedly, this is a four-year-old
machine, but it's run Microsoft Office 2008 and 2011 and older versions of reasonably well.)  This occurs in every LibreOffice
application.  If the problem is on my end, where can I start
troubleshooting to figure out where exactly it lies?  If the problem is
with LibreOffice, will upgrading to 3.5.1 solve my issue?  What else can
I do?

Just had another thought about known things that can slow LO down :
fonts, well actually, the number of fonts installed on your system.

If you have a large number of fonts installed, that can certainly slow
LO down, as can a large number of spell check dictionaries.

Does the delay between keypress and startup only happen when you first
load a document ? If so, these are known bugs for which there are 2
potential causes :

- loading all of the configuration files into memory, even though they
may not be needed ;

- reading entries from the accor.dat (personalised dictionary entries)
when this is close to the authorised size limit of that file (60kb ??)

I think the first one was fixed for 3.5.1, I can't say for the second one.
