Hi,

My version (3.2.1) of openoffice sucks!

After hitting "File" + "Open" a small screen pops up that lets you graphically select a file/directory. So far so good but there are two issues:

First, it doesn't really update the directory content by itself. I always have to hit the refresh button to update recent changes, which is annoying.

Second, it takes several seconds before I can mouse over a file and select it in the GUI.

Why is that and how can it be fixed?

I don't have this performance problem with any other software I am using on my box.

Maybe you should consider creating a VM and buying Windows and Office :D

This is tedious, but does LibreOffice do the same thing?
