I am trying to open a 33 page xxx.doc file which has data in in a table (3 coloumns X 200+ rows) using Libre Office 3.3.2. The files take ~4-6 minutes to open (all other applications and smaller documents opens real fast and I have a new and fast laptop). During this time entire LibreOffice will appears as hung. I checked swap usage using free and I can see it used some swap, but very little.
Once I open the document, I do see the data and table alignment completely lost. There are some areas table has contents, but by and large data is not within the cells as expected.
How I can speed up the opening process and how I can get the data almost like when I open with MS-Office?
