For some reason whenever I try to resize some text area it takes about a second or two to respond. I didn't experience this when I had 9.10 and, I think, the same version of OO. I have no idea on how to go about figuring out how to fix this problem. Any pointers?
Maybe you should try Libreoffice (http://www.libreoffice.org/download), its basically the same, but with many tweaks and bug fixes and the development goes on quite fast.
Disabling hardware acceleration fixed the problem.
