Description Carlos Rodrigues 2003-12-06 13:53:30 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031117

Description of problem:
I'm trying plot a graphic (line chart) of the values in a column
(~3000 lines) and it is extremely slow (emphasis on the "extremely"),
both at the initial creation of the chart and from then on at making
changes to it. I tried to do the same in gnumeric and it is almost

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. put 3000 values on a column
2. select that column
3. create a line chart from those values

Additional info:
My machine is an Athlon 2400+ with 512Mb of RAM.

An update to this: I tried to do a line chart of only 100 lines and it
takes 5 seconds to create and 1-2 seconds to resize the chart,
meanwhile   openoffice stops respondig without even redrawing the
window (consuming 100% CPU).
Comment 2 Carlos Rodrigues 2003-12-08 13:44:00 EST
Another thing: hiding the axis descriptions takes away all the slowness.

Could you attach a sample document?

Extremely slow chart

This file has a chart generated from the second column of the spreadsheet. try
to resize or otherwise change the chart to see what I mean by slow. If you hide
the X axis labels the slowness is no more (it seems to be writing a label for
every value...!).

Just FYI, I just tried the version of OpenOffice.org that comes with
Knoppix 3.4, which is OpenOffice.org 1.1.1, and the problem is there
also, so this still isn't fixed in 1.1.1.
Comment 6 Carlos Rodrigues 2004-07-09 14:32:48 EDT
Still present in OpenOffice that comes with Fedora 2.
Comment 7 Caolan McNamara 2004-11-05 20:02:23 EST
Its wo
Comment 8 Caolan McNamara 2004-11-05 20:04:39 EST
I can see it alright, it's also still in the up and coming 2.0 series
(1.9.58). I've logged an upstream bug for this. Lets see what the OOo
chart developers think about it.
