Thank you libreoffice users. Seems I got *the* advice to solve the problem ;-)

Subject: SOLVED: [libreoffice-users] Slow new paragraph

Thank you Brian, 

That solved it, though I do not know exactly what happened.

Deleting the table of contents did not help. Deleting most of the document 
helped. So, there could be something in the document.

I saved the whole document (after having deleted the table of contents) in 
ritch text format, quitted libreoffice, opened the rtf document saved it back 
to odt. Problem solved ;-)

The heading numbers disappeared in the process, which is OK for the moment. I 
am not interested to test, if they were the problem.

Background of the paragraphs disappeared. I checked the original file and all 
backgrounds were 'no fill' but still the text background was different from 
the margin.
In an earlier libreoffice version I played with the background colors. Maybe 
some obsolete formatting left 'hanging' somewhere.

This doesn't answer your question directly, but you may be able to
discover the source of the problem by progressively reducing your
document.  First, does this happen with a new, short document - that
is, is it a problem with your installation of LibreOffice and not
with the specific document?  If not, take a *copy* of your actual
document with which to experiment.  Delete the table of
contents.  Does that improve things?  Now delete half of the
text.  Does that help?  If so, experiment with the other half from
the original copy; if not, continue to halve the reduced document
until you see an improvement.  Using this "binary search", you may be
able to find which pat of your document - if any - is creating the
problem.  Then you might find a workaround.

This is only a guess, but what do you have at Tools | Options... |
Load/Save | General | Save | Save AutoRecovery information every ...
Minutes?  I have "15".  Is yours so short that LibreOffice is working
overtime to save information every time you make any change?

As I say, I'm just guessing ...

I trust this helps.
