I realized this morning that the version I installed was the "fresh"
release and not the "still" release. I did that because it was at the
top of the download page for the installer and was the only one that
showed on my browser screen (I didn't think to scroll down because
convention seems to be to present the current safe version at the top
and provide access to potentially unstable versions via more obscure
links). Seems to me it would be wise to hide the "fresh" version and
present the "still" version at the top of the list.
I am downloading the v.5 "still" release and will test that on the new
computer. I'm expecting it to work faster.
I also noticed that the 6.0.1 release is missing the memory management
option under the Tools|Options menu. I'd thought perhaps I could speed
up the filtering of the long file with memory management but there was
no option for memory management that I could find. I don't know if
that's intentional or a bug, but I thought I should mention it. Again,
that is in v.6.0.1.

OK, a little more info. I just ended up trying the spreadsheet on the
older machine running windows 7 and LibreOffice 5 and the filtering
was nearly instantaneous. Odd because Excel (2007) on that same
machine is very slow. So why would Calc run so slow when filtering
using LO 6 on a Windows 10 machine but so fast when running LO 5 on a
Windows 7 machine? And is there any connection to Excel being so slow
on both machines?

I work with large spreadsheets and have used both Excel and Calc in
the past. I have a large file with 10 or so sheets, many of which
are large and one has just over 35,000 records. In this sheet there
is a field that is boolean (0 or -1). When I filter on this field in
Excel it takes several minutes to complete. When filtering in Calc
it takes 10-15 minutes or more. I'm using Excel on an older and
slower i5 windows 7 machine and Libreoffice on a newer i5 (8th gen)
with windows 10. I may try to switch machines to see what happens,
but I'm pretty busy and taking the time to do that is tricky. Also,
I've tried using Excel 360 (trial) on the newer windows 10 machine
and it loads 30 seconds or so faster than the older machine running
excel, much faster than Libreoffice.
What might cause this slow filtering? I'd love to use Calc
exclusively, but occasional problems like this keep scaring me away
from fully embracing Libreoffice.
Thanks for any insights or ideas about how to speed it up.
