Hi :)
I don't find that at all.  I do find that it can sometimes be difficult to get the right balance 
for settings in
Tools - Options - Memory

Too much and you get the effect you are talking about but the default is often toooo low and 
can't handle bloated documents with massively heavy pictures such as those taken by almost any 
camera and not cleaned-up.  An image that is displayed as half the width of an A4 or 
US-Letter-size does NOT need to be 10MegaPixels.  I've even noticed a lot of logos, around the 
size of a thumbnail, that take up waaaay over 100Kb and even 100Kb is more than they would really 

Gimp is often useful for drastically reducing the scale of such images to about twice the size of 
the image you want to display.  About twice the size seems to work well.  I've not really worked 
with svgs yet.

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] LO crashes IE?

       That's the problem with OO --> LO; this program uses most of the RAM
therefore you cannot have other programs open at the same time.

       Therefore, the only solution I know is to save the file --> close
the program --> then open your other program(s)  ;-)

Good evening
I am struggling to make a certain CAT tool (memoQ) work with very
complex (crazy) Word files.
Since that did not work, I tried to save a file as ODF file and use that.
Apart from the trouble I have otherwise ...

When I click in Internet Explorer on that particular file to copy / move
/ delete etc. it ...
Explorer hangs (crashes) and tells me, it is not responding.
This happens even if I restart the computer and NO OTHER software except
IE is running.
And this happens ONLY with this particular LO file.
It is not a "read only" file.
LO files stored in their specific folder do not cause problems.

The above file ... when I want to delete it, the only way to accomplish
that is to open LO Writer,
click file open -> select that file and then hit "Del".
File location (desktop, any drive, any folder) has no influence on this

Has anybody any idea what this strange behavior may be due to?
Can possibly offer a solution?

Thank you.

The required image resolution depends on how it is used. If on a web
page or in a document the actual size determines the amount of data
needed to look sharp. Often this size is much smaller than what the
camera took originally. What the camera image size limits is the maximum
size the image can be blown up to and still look sharp. Image handling
programs allow you to reduce the size of certain formats (jpg) to a size
that still has acceptable sharpness for the final use.
