Hi :)
Ok, so it's probably something in the upgrade or in the User Profile.
Easiest one to check is the User Profile so please rename it

Bumpnig the memory settings up would still be a good plan imo.  I
really liked Tanstaafl's bug-report/feature-request
I've always meant to open a bug to add an option to allow you to set
these, rather than as a fixed number, as a percent of system/available

Ok, done...
It hadn't occurred to me but now he's suggested it i'm not sure why it
hadn't.  Hindsight is cool.
Regards from
Tom :)

Yes. Only one spreadsheet.

Calc on Ubuntu does this to me fairly often with any spreadsheet. I filed
bug report but I don't think there's active interest in it. When the
was filed I got a suggestion to upgrade, did so and the problem stopped.
Now, a few Ubuntu patches later, and the stall when open behavior is back.

My work around has been Apache OpenOffice. When I get tired of the
(and it's only Calc not Write or other programs) I start using AOO Calc.
Usually after a few LO patches are part of the Ubuntu updates the stalling


So... if is a problem with any spreadsheet, check if there is a newer LO
and install that to see if the issue is resolved.

If the issue isn't resolved by upgrading LO consider installing AOO and
opening the spreadsheet with AOO Calc. If the problem persists when the
spreadsheet is opened with AOO Calc it is definitely the spreadsheet.

Regardless of trying AOO, if it is only one particular spreadsheet, a bit
more information would be helpful trying to diagnose the problem.

- did this spreadsheet always act this way?


  - if no,
   -- what changes were made to the computer between the time the
spreadsheet last opened normally and first opened slowly? i.e.,
upgrade, or patch software

I Upgraded to LO 4.2.1 from 4.2.0.

   -- what changes were made to the spreadsheet between the time it last
opened normally and it first opened slowly? ie, add borders to cells,
create new formulas, add more data

No changes were made to the spreadsheet. I'd post a copy of it somewhere,
but it's my personal budget from last year.
