Good night = morning from Japan
I believe I did ask the same question in the past related to an
installation on a Win XP machine:
moving through documents (Writer) in LibreOffice while editing sometimes
(constantly!) sort of blurrs/freezes the screen.
That means, characters/lines/text sections "disappear", look like
smeared ink or are displayer overlapping.
The "problem" is solved, by switching to another Writer document and back.
That's fine, but still rather stupid and happens ONLY with Writer (not
yet noticed in Calc).

Computer: just bought a new one, running Windows 8.1 (= a nightmare!!!),
8 GB RAM, 120 GB SSD = OS + 1 TB HDD
and probably a whole lot of fancy high-tech stuff I not capable of

So, I would LOVE to believe, that there cannot be any sort of
"insufficient power".

IS there a trick to convince the display to work smoothly???
Thank you.

​Thomas, this is a tad off-topic, but since you mentioned that «Windows 8.1​

​(= a nightmare !!!)»​, I thought I'd suggest two simple steps to tame the
beast :

   1. Install Classic Shell from *
   <>* (elect the Windows 7 interface and change the
   start button), and
   2. Deactivate the superfluous Lockscreen by following the steps found
   here :

While not, alas, quite as good as dumping Windows altogether and
installing, e g, Linux Mint 17.1 instead, it should suffice to turn those
nightmares into relatively sweet dreams. I know it has for many retirees
here in Stockholm whom we help with computer problems....
