Several users have reported that when running on macOS Big Sur, NeoOffice would freeze for several seconds when switching to a different document window.
We found that a change in macOS Big Sur has made the creation of native comboboxes extremely slow compared to earlier versions of macOS. To avoid this permformance problem, we modified the NeoOffice code to reuse comboboxes instead of creating new ones every time a combobox needs to be drawn.
You do not need to wait until the next NeoOffice release to get the fix. You can get the fix now by downloading and installing the following test patch.
